‘By assembling  a great cast and exploring their high dramas, the author has given us a feast of a book.’

Edna O'Brien

‘The originality of this engrossing narrative comes from Daisy Hay’s unusual focus on the passionate allegiances and literary influences between her characters.  With great skill she weaves in and out of the lives of these poets, novelists, and philosophers, their husbands, wives, lovers, and children, exploring the dual nature of the creative impulse, its individuality, and the stimulus of kindred spirits.  It is a most impressive achievement.’

Michael Holroyd

‘This erudite volume brings the second generation Romantics entertainingly and vividly to life.’

Duncan Wu
