English Studies, Volume 72, Number 6, December 1991 `Poetic Form and British Romanticism achieves a high level of literary scholarship. The notes, which in many cases amount to sizeable supplementary essays, are far removed from the snippety odds and ends appended to some modern critical studies.'
Notes and Queries `Throughout, Curran's explications of major as well as of lesser-known poems in each genre are always interesting and often brilliant, the range of his learning astonishing.'
`The compression of his presentation is astonishing, and the overview is stunning ... Its learning, insight, and judiciousness make it, for the serious student, by far the outstanding survey of British Romantic poetry yet written ... It is a book to be bought, read, and reread frequently.' Keats-Shelley Journal
