‘What is distinctive and wholly welcome about this edition is its attempt to present the Memoirs as “one of the most significant biographical documents in Revolutionary and Romantic writing” (p. 12) … The introduction is a model of clarity and concision … [a] superb edition; clearly and attractively produced to rehabilitate the Memoirs as biography in a form unlikely to strain student budgets or backpacks. This edition deserves a place on all our bookshelves.’ (From Glynis Ridley, Enlightenment and Dissent, 20 (2001), 166-9.)

‘All facets correspond to the high standards the editors have set themselves in bringing this text to literary and historical prominence.… this wonderful edition.’ (From Lisa Vargo, Keats-Shelley Journal, 52 (2003).)
