Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As with any good collection of biographical essays, one finds many humanizing snippets that bring the century closer to us than any accumulation of facts and dates can do ... The volume reminds us why we fell in love with this period." (The Scriblerian and The Kit-Cats, 1 October 2013)

"This modest volume offers an excellent reference resource for students and scholars, but, as the authors explain, their aim is not only provide ‘reliable and accessible information’ but also ‘to offer a kind of browsing sense of interconnection between writers, and indeed a sample of the collective variety of the period’ (p. xxii)." (Years Work in English Studies, 1 August 2013)

"Excellent ... The range of authors covered in the encyclopaedia, while not exhaustive, should definitely be sufficient for most undergraduate or postgraduate students." (Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies, 17 July 2013)
