Reviews

'This richly contextual, deeply researched book is likely to appeal to all those interested in the evolution of the long creative life, and the challenges it presents to traditional categories of literary periodization.' The Times Literary Supplement
'The 'Lakeness' of Southey, Coleridge and Wordsworth amounted to a revisionary belatedness. This richly researched study shows us how an initially hostile label came to signify something positive about these poets ... this study includes many brilliantly resourceful close readings of unfamiliar poems. Fulford's critical style is enlivened by daring coinages that show off his writerly verve and reinternalize the literary as a presence within what he has to say. Not the least virtue of this learned book is not just how much its trenchant re-assessments inform us, but how well it displays the author's relish of and commitment to poetry.' Peter Larkin, Review 19 (www.nbol-19.org)
