MEDIA REVIEWS
"A general reader with an interest in literature or biography or both will find much of interest here." ("M/C" Reviews, March 2010)

"Lucid and intelligent." ("The Times Literary Supplement", November 2009)


"Last year I was sent Michael Benton's "Literary Biography: An Introduction "prior to publication, and was happy to supply a recommendation for the dust jacket. I described it then as an "elegant. introduction which is likely to appeal to both established scholars and to the growing number of university students who study the subject at all levels." Having read the book again for the purposes of this review, I am happy to stand by my initial response. Indeed, I would add that the book is sufficiently rich and thoughtful to provide an even more enjoyable and informative reading experience the second time around."
