"A Handbook of Romanticism Studiesis an engaging and exciting collection of essays edited by Joel Faflak and Julia M. Wright. Organised around a set of key terms - including 'imagination', and 'poetics', as well as 'race', 'gender', 'drama', 'satire', and 'science', - the volume charts the 'sea changes' that Romanticism studies has undergone during the last thirty years (p.6). . . In its declared endeavour 'to help the reader through this renovated and diverse field' (p.6), A Handbook is unquestionably successful." (Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies, 25 November 2015)
