Reviews

"The publication of Alexander Dick's monograph is significant in terms of the contribution it makes to interdisciplinary approaches to Romanticism. . . Dick's sharp focus on the gold standard, and the 'confidence' and 'embarrassment' that arose following the suspension of cash payments in 1797, offers new ways of investigating the shifting definitions of economic and literary value during the Romantic period . . . Dick's monograph . . . will undoubtedly inspire research across the nineteenth century" Review of English Studies

"Dick's ability to combine careful attention to the age's debates about monetary issues with a more speculative sense of the broader theoretical possibilities generated by the idea of the standard in its various forms constitutes an important addition to these discussions." Paul Keen, The BARS Review
