Review quote

"Isobel Murray's gifted editing makes this easily the finest edition available."--Dr. A.G. Hunter, Curry College"Very helpful editor's introduction and footnote. This was, for most students, the first exposure to a scholarly edition. It went over very well."--Thomas E. Blair, Chabot College"I've been using the Penguin Modern Classics version which lacks an introduction, chronology, and notes. Yours is more complete."--Robert O'Connor, North Dakota State University"Best quality at the lowest cost, excellent for my introduction to Literature course--students of all ages and backgrounds react strongly and positively to this unique book."--Paul Pellikka, The Univ. of Texas"A fine edition which would work quite well in an English Lit. survey, especially one in the waning years of the twentieth century, given this novel's focus."--Laura Dabundo, Kennesaw State College"Superbly annotated and excellent for introducing students to the wealth of critical and secondary sources available to the Victorian scholar."--Dr. Jonathan F. Alexander, University of Southern Colorado"Another useful addition to the series."--John Wilson, Dakota Wesleyan University"Just what I need to supplement reading in [my] course. Will use...as a text."--S.I. Bellman, Cal Poly Pomona "Isobel Murray's gifted editing makes this easily the finest edition available."--Dr. A.G.
