Appeared in Choice on 1985-12:
Both scope and thoroughness of this bibliography are commendable: more than 3,000 books, articles, and parts of books dealing with the 18th-century English novel and its social, historical, economic, and cultural background. Inclusive for important material published between 1900 and 1981, it is also most thorough for studies from 1982 to 1984. Works listed include general bibliographies and surveys of criticism, studies of 18th-century life, general criticism, and bibliographical, critical, and biographical studies of 5 major and 39 minor novelists, plus Johnson (Rasselas) and Swift (Gulliver's Travels). Significant works are marked by symbols. What makes this volume unique is its guide to more than 800 themes, subjects, and critical issues relating to the Georgian novel. Each topical entry directs the reader to relevant citations within the bibliography; numerous cross-references connect related issues within the topic list. Both students and reference librarians will find the topical guide invaluable. The so-called ``annotations,'' however, are merely listings of applicable terms from this topic guide. Readers seeking full narrative annotations must turn to Jerry C. Beasley's English Fiction, 1660-1800: A Guide to Information Sources (CH, Oct '78), which this new volume complements and extends. Essential for all libraries supporting graduate English studies; useful for those supporting strong undergraduate literature programs.-M.E. Devine, formerly University of North Carolina at Asheville
