"This exemplary book may prove one of the most influential books on Romantic literature for decades to come... Essential."

"A work of considerable variety and ambition, engagingly written, refreshingly undogmatic in its methods and generous in acknowledging related work in the field, The Neural Sublime will be essential reading for those interested in romanticism's relationship with the human sciences; it is also highly recommended for anyone in the field of romantic studies partial to interdisciplinary conversations."

"Accesible to experienced practitioners and novice readers alike, this volume makes an interdisciplinary evaluation of subjects and issues which isolated disciplines cannot tackle alone."

"Alan Richardson is an acknowledged pioneer in cognitive approaches to literature. His command of Romantic literature, the history of ideas of the Romantic era, and contemporary cognitive research is authoritative. In The Neural Sublime, he expands on his previous groundbreaking work in cognitive historicism by applying contemporary neuroscience to Romantic-era works."
