MEDIA REVIEWS

'The work of the five writers Schaub studies is not wholly conservative, but advances feminist assertion over the new woman fiction of the late Victorian period, giving success to the admittedly rare women able to reason and provide for themselves The study is well researched, well written, and readable.' M. S. Stephenson, University of Texas at Brownsville
