Reviews

“Dictionary of Shelley is an excellent, compact resource. … book comprises alphabetically arranged entries, of varying length, on individual poems and works and on an array of key and marginal people, places, and events in Shelley’s life. … contain references to relevant scholarship and further reading, and are accompanied by an up-to-date and well-researched bibliography. … Garrett’s Dictionary succeeds in providing a convenient desk-reference that will be of service to Shelley scholars while remaining accessible to an advanced general audience.” (A Year's Work in English Studies, 2015)

"...clearly and concisely written and well-presented... As well as being a good introductory guide to Shelley and an enjoyable read in general, the volume is an excellent source of scholarly information and will be a valuable reference work for students of English literature in the Romantic Period." Anna França, Reference Reviews
