About this book

In the Romantic period's economics of 'fiat' money the legacy of romanticism involves absolutist gestures of verbal fiat. Focused on William Wordsworth, but in constant range of his poet-successors and modern critics, Romantic Fiat presents an argument for a double romantic signature of 'let there be' and 'let be.'

Reviews

"In the course of the volume, Lindstrom gathers an impressive number of 'let be' statements . . . From discussions of Wordsworth's 'Tintern Abbey' and 'The Old Cumberland Beggar' to Shelley's Peter Bell and Byron's Don Juan, the book accomplishes something that is all too rare in scholarship . . . the book changes what one notices in a poetry that has become all too familiar . . . I conclude with an injunction: 'do not let this book be,' by which I mean, read this book." - Studies in Romanticism
