Stelzig’s book has now been awarded the 2010 Jean-Pierre Barricelli Book Prize for the year’s best book in Romanticism studies.
In communicating the award, Prof. Larry H. Peer, Executive Director of the International Conference on Romanticism and Professor of Comparative Literature at Brigham Young University, wrote to Stelzig that, “Your book is a particular piece that has been needed in the field of Crabb Robinson studies for generations.”
Stelzig will receive a commemorative plaque at the annual meeting of the International Conference on Romanticism in Montreal next October.
Henry Crabb Robinson (1775-1867) met Goethe and Schiller and left his impressions of S.T. Coleridge, Charles Lamb, William Blake, William Wordsworth, and other writers in his Diary, Reminiscences, and Correspondence, first published in 1869.
