Frederick Burwick brings the essays together again in this volume, introducing them by tracing the sources and development of a belletristic theory of rhetoric, which he says “is one of the most original , and for a few critics, the most puzzling of the nineteenth century.” Burwick makes the edition complete with a comprehensive index and a selected bibliography. Frederick Burwick, a professor emeritus at the University of California, Los Angeles, is the author of Thomas De Quincey: Knowledge and Power, Mimesis and its Romantic Reflections, and many other books.
