Reviews:

“Morrison collects in this volume more than 300 cross-referenced entries on mass-market British fiction published in the latter half of the 19th century. While similar, earlier works exist the focus on popular fiction is an important distinction…points to key changes in the Victorian literary landscape…there are sections addressing topics concerning the writes themselves. These are especially helpful in contextualizing subjects within the given period, which can be significantly different from how they’re viewed today…recommended”
—Library Journal

“Common themes in Victorian popular fiction, from bigamy and vivisection to masculinity and motherhood, are explored in historical context. An extensive list of works cited and consulted appears at the end of the volume. Recommended”
—Booklist

“Weaves together an alphabetical listing of entries to create a literary and social narrative that bridges the gap between the Victorian Era and the students’ present, making this guide a welcome addition to any library’s shelves.”
—American Reference Books Annual
