Roberts's book is undeniably a major contribution to Landorian studies. * Gioia Angeletti, BARS Review * Landors Cleanness is notable for its scope and insightful analyses, yet it is Roberts particular and interestingly oblique approach to Landor that provides the study a singular focus ... By analyzing Landors work in terms of a clean/unclean dialectic Roberts brings the poet with a vanishing reputation closer in line with the broader Romantic effort. * William C. Horrell, The Wordsworth Circle *
