“[E]dited with great dedication by Albert Rivero. . . . [It] contains outstanding essays. . . . Some of the best essays explore historical aspects of the texts to throw new light on their fictional economies.”

—Kate Williams, Modern Language Review, on volume 2

“Each of the essays is fully documented and vigilantly argued. The editors of the volume have produced an appropriately scholarly collection, but have been careful not to edit out the individual voices of the contributors. The Eighteenth-Century Novel . . . is thoughtful, engaging, and challenging. It is also a pleasure to read . . . and an encouraging sign of the state of eighteenth-century scholarship.”

—Christopher Johnson, ECCB, on volume 5
