“Tom Mole […] writes incisively about the politics of visibility in The Bride of Abydos, using Judith Butler to consider the complex matrix of real and subversive freedom in the poem’s visualisations: Mole’s past writings have proven him an illuminating and sensitive scholar, and this article reconfirms those conclusions”
Emily A. Bernhard Jackson, The Byron Journal, 37.1 (2009), 66-68.

“Mole’s essay begins to rectify […] the unfair neglect of […] The Bride of Abydos
