The Victorian Literature Handbook is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to literature and culture in the Victorian period. It is a one-stop resource for literature students, providing the essential information and guidance needed from introducing the historical and cultural context to key authors, texts and genres. It includes case studies for reading literary and critical texts, a guide to key critical concepts, introductions to key critical approaches, and a timeline of literary and cultural events. Essays on changes in the canon, interdisciplinary research and current and future directions in the field lead into more advanced topics and guided further reading enables further independent work. Written in clear language by leading academics, it is an indispensable starting point for anyone beginning their study of nineteenth century literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A practical and comprehensive guide that will surely prove useful for students and teachers alike. Its coverage is superb and its list of contributors impressive." - Donald E. Hall, Distinguished Professor of English, West Virginia University, USA
"A highly readable and intelligent guide which will give students confidence in mapping their way through the increasingly complex world of nineteenth-century literature ... it equips readers with the ideal toolkit to enter the debate about the past, present and future of Victorian Studies." - Professor Valerie Sanders, University of Hull, UK
"It is strikingly different from its competitors in ways which will be useful to our students; in particular in its closing section it stands back from single author or single topic discussions and gives the kind of overview of Victorian criticism, recent and particularly present, which students have little time to acquire during their courses, but would find really useful..." - Ian Campbell, University of Edinburgh, UK
"Teachers will find the appendix especially interesting for its survey of Victorian literature curricula in 50 British and American universities revealing current pedagogical trends and ending with a helpful list of Websites. The handbook is an indispensable modern guide for both students and teachers of Victorian literature." - Charlotte Lindgren, American Reference Books Annual, Vol. 40, 2009
The Victorian Literature Handbook provides a helpful collection of resources for undergraduates new to the study of the literature and culture of the Victorian period. The Handbook's greatest strength lies in its novel and straightforwardly helpful approach to presenting ideas and information.--Sanford Lakoff
