Linda Kelly sketches in the political background as well as the literary beginnings of the French Romantic movement... She traces the rise and decline of Romantic theatre from 'Cromwell' to 'Ruy Blas', with piquant cameos of the famous prima donnas, the most - perhaps the only - independent women of their time, except of course the unique Georges Sand. -- The Washington Post
