Regenerating Romanticism makes an important contribution to the ongoing work of expanding and reconsidering our understanding of Romantic-era literary history - and the establishment of what might be called a counter-canon - by detailing canonical male writers' successful efforts to recode sensibility so as to exclude women from literary recognition.--Elizabeth A. Bohls, University of Oregon, Author of Slavery and the Politics of Place: The Colonial Caribbean, 1770-1833
