MEDIA REVIEWS

Comments:

"This is the only modern edition to be based on the first three-volume version of Braddon's much revised novel, and the editors make an excellent case for their choice. A substantial and lucidly written critical introduction situates the novel in its contemporary cultural contexts; in debates about realism and sensationalism, and anxieties about class, femininity, domesticity and marriage. The appendices, containing a selection of contemporary views of femininity and domesticity, and responses to Braddon and her novel, are an added bonus to this excellent volume." - Lyn Pykett, University of Wales-Aberystwyth

"Invaluable ... provides copious explanatory notes, appendices containing contemporary reviews and writings on femininity, and a thorough, well-organized introduction." - Times Literary Supplement
