I’m grateful to Ashley Cross for a very kind review of my book The Poetry of Mary Robinson: Form and Fame in the Autumn 2011 issue of The Wordsworth Circle. She writes, for instance,
These chapters present nuanced readings of her poems (many of which have never been critically examined in print since their initial publication) and restate them within their specific publication contexts. In so doing, The Poetry of Mary Robinson reveals her innovations in the ode, the sonnet, and the ballad as well as her creation of original lyric forms. . . . It thus uncovers her seminal role in the development of British Romanticism and English prosody.
