Reviews

'...this volume is essential reading for scholars working in the field, and a superb introduction for those new to it.' - Benjamin Dabby, Victoriographies

'...this important collection reflects the great diversity and ingenuity of women's literary contributions in this period, their readiness to ask 'big questions' and the ideational connections which they themselves generated in the intellectual networks in which they worked.' - Christina Davidson, Women: A Cultural Review
