“Amelia Opie is one of a dozen or so Romantic-era writers whose work has been rediscovered in the last two decades. Scholars have focused on her novels, especially Adeline Mowbray, but this impressive volume of more than 340 poems will certainly inspire new work on her poetic output over a long life. As the standard edition for years to come, it belongs in every research library.” - Thomas McLean, Keats-Shelley Journal
