Review:

"...The best book on symbolism in ages. Essential." CHOICE July 2005

"Art historian Sharon L. Hirsh has provided students of modern European history with a new study of symbolism in an effort to "retrieve" symbolists from the intellectual wasteland of esoteric mysticism to which scholars have relegated them"
Patricia Tilburg, Journal of Modern History
