Reviews

'... a highly refreshing study of the sensation fiction genre ... [a] well-researched and highly recommended introduction to sensation fiction.' The Gothic Imagination
'... [the] contributions are rigorously researched, thoughtful and beautifully written.' J. Greg Matthews, Reference Reviews
'Accessible yet rigorous, this Companion features thought-provoking and well documented essays by sixteen scholars who have written extensively about Sensation from a variety of critical and literary perspectives, demonstrating what influenced the shape and texture of the sensation novel, and establishing its repercussions textually as well as in stage and media adaptations.' Philip V. Allingham, Notes and Queries
'Quite effectively, the essays Mangham has commissioned represent the range and variety of approaches that sensation inspires, very few of which place authors and their works at the center. This Companion surely creates for students (and their teachers) the opportunity to understand sensation as a wide-ranging and ongoing phenomenon, in which the representation of 'the mysteries which are at our own doors,' in James's famous phrase, could make strange even the most banal facets of everyday life ...' Mary Jean Corbett, Victorian Studies
