Appeared in Choice on 1989-07:
Prentis's historical and biographical contextualization and conflation of the Brontes and Eliot, almost invariably viewed as irreconcilably different, is a useful corrective, suggesting as it does that these women form the beginning of a significant realist tradition within the evolving novel genre. Aside from this conflation, however, Prentis, explicitly disavowing literary theory, brings little new information or analysis to this overresearched field. This book will be useful in undergraduate libraries, providing an overview for students new to the material. -C. Kaplan, Saint Michael's College
