Reviews

"This wide-ranging anthology offers a fresh approach to the concept of the sublime. Looking beyond the traditional aesthetic
definitions of Longinus and Kant, the editors divide the book into six key themes connected with sublime effect: mountains, money, mind, Gothic, crowds and the exotic . . . The collection will appeal to specialists and students alike." - Forum for Modern Language Studies
