Mazzeno (dean of humanities, Mesa State College, Colorado) takes a pragmatic approach in this bibliography focused on 13 Victorian novelists. He includes critical works easily accessible to lower-division and community college students both in intellectual level and by probable wide ownership. Entries are arranged by author; a "general" section is followed by citations to specific novels. Chapters from works named in the general sections are also cited repeatedly under individual novels. Annotations are straightforward and descriptive. Though Mazzeno deliberately, because of space limitations, eschews discussion of "the subtlety of argumentation that makes these studies of value," more vivid language might better entice students to take a few tentative steps into the gaudy, exciting world of the Victorian novel. Secondary and lower-division undergraduate students only. -A. F. Dalbey, College of Marin
