Lamb, Hazlitt, and de Quincey were for generations major figures in English romanticism. McFarland explores the reasons for the decline of their influence in the 20th century and undertakes the laudable task of demonstrating why they should continue to be regarded as of central importance. This is a learned work, which ranges far and wide across the literatures of England and Europe and takes for granted the reader's immersion in romantic studies. As such, it is beyond the range of undergraduates but well deserves the attention of specialists. -N. Fruman, University of Minnesota
