Praise for Lucasta Miller’s L.E.L.:

“L.E.L. is the first biography of Landon to explore recent revelations about her life, and the literary critic Lucasta Miller’s sleuthing delivers an unexpected result. The figure who emerges from her pages is not just a missing link in literary Romanticism, but a progenitor of something modern.”–Nicholas Dames, The Atlantic

“A valiant recovery job–the life of a writer, a woman first celebrated, then notorious, in her time and nearly forgotten today … infinitely rich.”–Katherine A. Powers, The Wall Street Journal

“Miller resurrects the all-but-forgotten life and once radiant career of Letitia Elizabeth Landon … A compelling examination of an unjustly marginalized literary life.”–Booklist

“Textured and lively … Miller’s biography vividly restores a forgotten author and her faded world, that of the ‘strange pause’ between the Romantics and the Victorians.”–Publishers Weekly

“A riveting life of an English poet and novelist whose precocious career ended in sexual scandal and controversy … The extent of Miller’s research is impressive … A thorough, engaging, and even loving restoration.”–Kirkus (starred review)
