"John Pearson has written an insightful and well-documented analysis which every James scholar will have to read but which may also be of great interest to scholars interested in the history of fictional theory and the role Jamesian aesthetics played in the development of that theory."
"Pearson's work is a significant contribution to James studies and to the larger project of mapping the history of early modern literature. . . . He is right on target when he argues for a reading of the prefaces within the context of the edition as authorial performance--which is to say, within the context of the 'semiotic field' in which they originally appeared."
--David McWhirter, Texas A & M University-College Station
