Overview

R. Brimley Johnson (1867-1932) is the editor of this 1914 collection. A newspaper literary review falls somewhere between a literary criticism and a publisher's advertisement for the book. As early as the reign of King George reviews were beginning to be published. The fame of a particular review does not depend on its literary merit or the popularity of the book being reviewed. A scandalous review sells papers. Johnson has chosen to include in this collection reviews of books that will be familiar to the reader. Included are reviews by DeQuincey, Gladstone, Scott, and Kingsley.
