Reviews

"Aficionados of all things Bronte must have this encyclopedia on their desks. Even those with just a passing interest in Bronte or literary research can become trapped in this book for hours. Looking up one entry leads to looking up another, and then another." "This book has references to the important and the arcane and the obscure, references to places the Brontes visited, people they knew; in short, everything." ("English Literature in Transition 1820-1920")

"Approximately 2,000 meticulously researched entries are alphabetically arranged in clear, page-wide columns, accompanied by sixty carefully selected illustrations. Although intended as a work of reference, the authors' lively style and 'original literary judgements' make for an entertaining read. A handsome volume which will be a valuable reference tool for many years to come, for the general reader and scholar alike." ("Bronte Studies", March 2008)"Despite the author's association with the Bronte Society, he does not gloss over the facts of the Brontes' lives ... a fine work that will serve undergraduates well." ("Choice Reviews")
