Editorial Reviews

Review

"The courageous broadening of the term's critical potential allows Dart to range his interpretive eye over a broader cultural canvas than a discussion of Cockneyism might initially imply, and to suggest a relevance to the concept that is as disorientating as it is invigorating."
Times Literary Supplement

"... a fresh, wonderfully interesting, lucidly written book. Dart's style is a model of accessibility and is unceasingly engaging. He is a fine writer and [this book] is a testament to his wide-ranging abilities as a researcher and critic. This book reaches further into the Victorian period than the title suggests and is superb reading for anyone interested in Romantic and Victorian period cultures ... an affectionate, interesting and generative study of Cockneyism, and how it engages with, among other things, architecture, art, city planning, fashion, literature, politics and suburban gardens. Dart's achievement is that he extends debates on Cockneyism out of the tight timeframe of 1812-20, that previous academic studies have largely held them in and, in doing so, expands the cultural spheres that Cockneys engaged with."
Journal of Victorian Culture

"Romanticists are familiar with the Cockney School attacks on the Leigh Hunt circle mounted by J. G. Lockhart in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine beginning in 1817. Gregory Dart offers a fine-grained analysis of deployments of the term "Cockney" after the attacks, and in so doing manages to cover a remarkable swathe of London's cultural landscape."
Thora Brylowe, BARS Bulletin and Review

Book Description

Gregory Dart expands upon existing notions of Cockneys and the 'Cockney School' in the late Romantic period by exploring some of the broader ramifications of the phenomenon in art and periodical literature and examining Cockneyism as a link between the works of Keats and the early works of Dickens.
