Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Jewel Spears Brooker has done a fine job executing this massive project. On the one hand, Brooker presents a wide range of reviews of individual works, yet she manages to weed out redundancies, passages that do not relate to Eliot, and most well-known quotations of Eliot's own work. There is very little repetition of content, even in sections where an extremely generous number of reviews of an individual work appear... Also, Brooker's exellent introduction provides a variety of very helpful contexts for reading the reviews. Given the rich content, this is a volume that all academic libraries need to own." English Literature in Transition, Richard Badenhausen, Westminster College

"These reviews are often remarkably insightful at the same time that they reveal divergences that continue to the present." Books and Culture, Daniel Taylor, Bethel College
