About the Author:

Susan Manly is Reader in English at the University of St Andrews, UK. Manly's areas of specialization include literature of the 1790s, and the works of Maria Edgeworth with a particular interest in Edgeworth's religious politics and writing for and about children. She is the author of Language, Custom and Nation in the 1790s: Locke, Tooke, Wordsworth, Edgeworth (Ashgate, 2007).

Review:

Feedback from series editors Matthew Grenby and Lynne Vallone:
 
'This is an excellent proposal. The proposed book will be very useful in the classroom as well as making a significant contribution to Edgeworth scholarship. Manly provides a persuasive rationale for her selections - and selecting from Edgeworth's oeuvre is very difficult - and provides ideas about how this book may be used in conversation with Edgeworth criticism as well as in debates about Romantic-era writers, ideas about race, politics and gender in the period, etc.'
 
 
FEEDBACK ON THE SERIES:

'Very enthusiastic!! Some of these titles are not available AT ALL right now and it would be so great to be able to teach them in nice new editions! Yes.'
Professor Marah Gubar, University of Pittsburgh

'I think the focus on less known texts is the most attractive thing here - if this were nothing but Peter Pan, etc., I wouldn't be as interested. It will also depend on the quality of the notes and introduction. I don't generally like anthologies, and one benefit here is that these are packaged (more) singly. I would definitely consider using the Edgeworth, Sherwood, Newbery, andYonge volumes. I would also be able to use these in graduate as well as undergraduate seminars.

I'm enthusiastic and would definitely recommend this kind of series to my students.'
Professor Kenneth Kidd, University of Florida

'I strongly support the idea of such a series, which if executed and marketed well is likely to encourage further excellent historical work in children's literature. Of the titles proposed to date, I would be most likely to adopt Countess Kate (no competing edition for this title, which I do presently teach); this preference merely reflects my own comfort zone, which is situated more in the mid-Victorian through Edwardian periods than in the 18th century and Romantic periods. I could be tempted by a good Sherwood volume, though!'
Professor Claudia Nelson, Texas A&M University

'I'm very keen on the Classics of Children's Literature series and believe that it will appeal to the growing numbers of scholars and students working in children's literature.

We ask students to obtain primary texts of 'classic' works. So far we haven't required that they purchase critical editions, but if the Palgrave series were to be available and not too expensive we would recommend this series.'
Professor Clare Bradford, Deakin University, Aus

'Often the choices of texts on university programmes is determined by what's in print so the Palgrave texts could have quite an impact on reading practices.

I am very enthusiastic about the series. It would make an excellent addition to Palgrave's list and I would certainly recommend it to students. The series editors are both leading international scholars and world experts in their field – I can't think of a better choice.'
Professor Judy Simons, De Montfort University

'As before, I'm very enthusiastic about this series. There's much attention given to children's literature as an area of study these days, but there's still a lack of many key texts, and this series could fill some of these gaps.'
Dr David Rudd, University of Bolton
