Colin Graham, Ideologies of Epic: Nation, Empire and Victorian Epic Poetry (Manchester University Press, 1998)

‘This book is a valuable contribution to nineteenth-century Irish studies … [an] excellent example of explicitly theory-driven criticism in practice’ Irish University Review, 30: 1 (2000)

‘another fine example of the way theorists can provide deeper appreciation of controversial works of literature’ Laurence W. Mazzeno, Alfred Tennyson: The Critical Legacy (Boydell and Brewer, 2004)

‘Colin Graham articulates succinctly why Arthur’s realm, which is neither a nation nor an empire, can be read as both’ Victorian Poetry 45.3 (2007) 239-256
