Editorial Reviews


For anyone who is curious about this neglected corner of literature, The Gothic Flame is a work of the first importance. (The Spectator)

A patient, devoted and altogether admirable study, Dr. Varma's book is likely to remain the standard historical reference work in the field. (The Times)

By his industrious research and the clever presentation of his material, Dr. Varma has rescued a dream literature from oblivion. (Herbert Read) --This text refers to the Textbook Binding edition.
