Reviews provided by Syndetics


The Encyclopedia of Romantic Literature consists of three hardcover volumes that contain 280 well-written entries by an international group of commissioned scholars that cover British artistic, literary, and intellectual movements between 1780 and 1830. Entries, which range in length from 1,000 to 6,500 words, "explore genre development in prose, poetry, and drama of the Romantic period, key authors and their works, and key themes." All entries feature "references and suggested readings" and cross-references. Included in this set is an alphabetical list of entries, a thematic list of entries, a name index, and an extensive subject index that leads researchers inside entries that might be overlooked. As is the case with many multivolume works, this set is perhaps best accessed online, where researchers can use full-text searching capabilities. Entries such as "history," "spectacle," and "sublime" may be overlooked without exploration via a full-text searching option. This work is available online as part of a growing Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature collection that includes this title and four other encyclopedia sets, e.g., The Encyclopedia of English Renaissance Literature, edited by G. A. Sullivan Jr. and A. Stewart (CH, Jul'12, 49-6006). More titles are planned. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers. R. B. Meeker Chicago State University
