'An excellent anthology of Victorian source materials...well organised, lucidly introduced and broad in outlook'. - Gail Marshall, Professor of Victorian Literature and Director of the Victorian Studies Centre, University of Leicester, UK.'A portable infinity. It is difficult to imagine a course on nineteenth-century British literature that could not make ample use of the touchstones gathered here—or a Victorianist who could fail to be astonished by the strange salvage this book mixes with the familiar.' - Paul Saint-Amour, Associate Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania, USA.
