Praise for volume 1 of Symbolism
“If the high quality of this first volume can be maintained in the future, this series will become an essential tool for all serious scholars and research libraries. As is fitting for its outstanding content, the volume is handsomely printed, illustrated, and hardbound . . . .
Symbolism, Vol. 1 is a very substantial contribution to scholarship.”
—Todd K. Bender, Anglistik
