Victorian Periodicals Review
"Using Mikhail Bakhtin's work to formulate a theory of the interactions of literary and journalistic genres, Dallas Liddle takes important steps toward mapping the variety of genres employed by Victorian journalists. In The Dynamics of Genre, Liddle ably demonstrates that although most scholars read periodicals as a simple single genre, periodical writing consists of a series of related genre templates that evolved with and against each other. Throughout this interesting, clearly argued book, Liddle addresses the question of how periodical genres interact with and affect the literary genres that exist alongside them."
