From Booklist:

Although the Victorian era ended nearly 100 years ago, its fascination for adult history and literature enthusiasts seems as strong as ever. High school students probably won't pick up the books analyzed in this entry in the Literary Movements and Genres series unless they are required reading, but the solid, often enlightening essays make the selections more accessible. The introduction is especially helpful. It offers a clear overview of both the period and the writers who depicted the era either through straightforward adherence to the mores of the day or through subtle defiance of the restrictions society imposed. In general, the essays cover an idea, a philosophy, or a literary technique shared by several authors of the period. Only Wuthering Heights is singled out for literary analysis. Most information on works and authors comes in small pieces within essays, which will often prove entirely sufficient for students needing support for a research topic. Roger Leslie

From School Library Journal:

Grade 12 Up-This scholarly anthology of critical essays that have been published in academic journals and other books provides an introduction to the Victorian literary movement that took place in England from 1830 to 1900. Historical and political background is given at the beginning of each chapter, along with other pertinent information that will help readers to better understand the literature of this period. Subsequent sections offer critical analyses of specific authors and works such as Matthew Arnold, Charles Dickens, the Bront' sisters, and George Eliot. Though the information is accurate and the arguments presented in the essays are written by well-known scholars, the dry writing style and academic nature of the essays will not appeal to students.
