We received a very detailed review in the web site of the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Here are some choice quotes from the same;


"Familiar caricatures of early nineteenth-century Romantic poets Lord Byron, Percy Shelley and John Keats have long thrived in popular culture. Whilst Alan Richardson’s Amore: The Romantic Poets certainly upholds and embraces such tempting depictions, it does not merely serve to replicate and perpetuate.
A revitalizing mix of the well-known with the little-known, quietly challenging the afterlives with which we have become so familiar.
The production affords opportunities to hear wonderful readings of full works, such as the powerful recitation of Shelley’s Ozymandias and Byron’s She Walks in Beauty. In an age when reading aloud has become something of an antique memory, it was such a pleasure
to hear such works read with such fervour and passion.”
