"This tour de force of Wilde scholarship makes his Chatterton notebook pivotal in redefining Wilde's career. Its major revisionary thinking extends to Pre-Raphaelitism and to the whole fin de siecle."-Isobel Armstrong, Birkbeck, University of London -- Isobel Armstrong "This book has the potential to transform our understanding not only of Wilde and his oeuvre, but also the notions of authenticity and originality that still exert a pervasive influence on literary history."-Nicholas Frankel, author of Oscar Wilde's Decorated Books -- Nicholas Frankel "By establishing the significance of Chatterton for Wilde and for the nineteenth century as a whole, the authors invite us to reconsider what we mean when we complain of 'plagiarism.' A revelation-and not just for Wildeans."-John Stokes, King's College London -- John Stokes "This is a major, unrivalled accomplishment, of consequence both in Wilde studies and in the literary-cultural history of forgery and creative imagination."-Susan J. Wolfson, Princeton University -- Susan J. Wolfson "An impressive work of scholarship, this book, using previously unpublished archival material, not only thoroughly explores the Chatterton-Wilde connection but also presents credible evidence that Wilde's 'Chatterton' notebook was not an act of forgery."?Library Journal Library Journal "This remarkable book is a breath of fresh air in understanding [Oscar Wilde]."-Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly -- Steve Donoghue Open Letters Monthly "Thoroughly researched and written with clarity and intelligence, this volume includes detailed footnotes and references to outside resources."-Choice Choice "Bristow and Mitchell argue persuasively that Chatterton's life and works permeate Wilde's career... Chatterton may be dead, but as this book amply demonstrates, he remains for literary critics uncommonly restless"-Nick Groom, TLS -- Nick Groom TLS
