Editorial Reviews


"Scrupulously detailed...Leask convincingly explains how the life of the poet is much more complicated than the myths of the life, and how the poetry plays between the two in a stunning variety of attitudes and addresses. The poetry looks all the better for it." --The Wordsworth Circle

"Excellent...offers a rich new contribution to the cultural and intellectual history of the Scottish Enlightenment." --Modern Philology
