Appeared in Choice on 1999-05-15:
This second volume responds to renewed interest in lesser-known writers who began to write by 1880, had achieved a measure of fame by that time, or began writing before the end of WW I. Although the first series (DLB 153, CH, Apr'96) considered 35 authors who wrote largely in the Romantic tradition, this one is concerned with 37 who wrote as realists. A carefully reasoned introductory essay puts the work of these writers into the context of the world in which they lived by describing politics, the world at war, and science and industry, and by viewing them through the eyes of later writers and researchers. Contributors provide analyses of the lives and work of British writers from J.K. Beresford, whose literary career is well documented, to Gertrude Dix, about whose life, literary or otherwise, tantalizingly few details are known. General and academic collections. R. Hanson; Muskingum College
