No 45 (2015)

Welcome to the second online issue of The BARS Review. This issue contains a bumper crop of high-quality reviews that showcase the rich and varied interdisciplinary field of Romantic studies. We are particularly pleased to include a section on ‘European Romanticism’ and we hope that subsequent issues will extend our reach to the Far East and Australasia.

The switch to online publication of The BARS Review is one of a number of initiatives aimed at promoting BARS’ role as the UK’s national association for Romantic Studies: other developments include online interviews with authors (‘Five Questions’) and a First Book Prize (winner to be announced at ‘Romantic Imprints’, BARS’ 2015 conference in Cardiff in July).
