“The Limits of Familiarity” is “fascinating”

The Limits of Familiarity: Authorship and Romantic Readers

by Lindsey Eckert

“In this fascinating analysis of Romantic-era readership and reading practices, Lindsey Eckert explores the complex meanings of ‘familiarity’ and shows how attention to this concept can illuminate both the practice and the reception of writers including Charlotte Smith, William Wordsworth, Lord Byron, Caroline Lamb, and William Hazlitt.”
