Review quote

"Setting a new standard for the recovery of forgotten authors, Paula Bennett has restored to us a major poet in Sarah Piatt, whose astringent, polyvocal, haunting work will be read alongside that of Whitman and Dickinson. Palace_Burner will quickly become a touchstone in scholars' ongoing reevaluation of the relationship between politics and aesthetics in nineteenth-century American literature and will transform our understanding of sentimentalism in American poetry." Karen L. Kilcup, editor of Nineteenth_Century American Women Writers: A Critical Readershow more
