Editorial Reviews

"As with any good collection of biographical essays, one findsmany humanizing snippets that bring the century closer to us thanany accumulation of facts and dates can do ... The volume remindsus why we fell in love with this period."  (The Scriblerianand The Kit-Cats, 1 October 2013)

"This modest volume offers an excellent reference resource forstudents and scholars, but, as the authors explain, their aim isnot only provide ‘reliable and accessible information’but also ‘to offer a kind of browsing sense ofinterconnection between writers, and indeed a sample of thecollective variety of the period’ (p. xxii)." (Years Workin English Studies, 1 August 2013)  

"Excellent ... The range of authors covered in theencyclopaedia, while not exhaustive, should definitely besufficient for most undergraduate or postgraduate students."(Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies, 17 July 2013)
