Reviews

Praise for the series: 'At last we are going to have a definitive edition of Samuel Richardson's works and correspondence, long overdue, for the writer who was the most influential novelist of the eighteenth century. This ambitious project, 25 volumes of his works and his most important literary correspondence - each volume entrusted to a respected scholar - will illuminate all areas of eighteenth-century studies for Richardson's oeuvre lights up the entire century.' Ruth Perry, Ann Fetter Friedlaender Professor of the Humanities and MacVicar Fellow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Praise for the series: 'At last, this most editorially neglected of great writers is getting the treatment that his works and correspondence deserve. Scholars are eager to get their hands on the first volumes of this complete Richardson, with authoritative texts and rich annotation prepared by a world-class team under Keymer and Sabor's leadership. This new edition marks an epoch in Richardson studies.' Jane Spencer, Professor of English, University of Exeter
'The entire publication is something of a momentous occasion for readers interested in eighteenth-century literature and the history of the novel.' The Cambridge Quarterly
"The entire publication is something of a momentous occasion for readers interested in eighteenth-century literature and the history of the novel. Publication of all the securely attributable works and letters will finally allow us to assess Richardson's achievement with the aid of a fully annotated scholarly edition with explanatory and textual apparatus." --The Cambridge Quarterly
"For Richardson scholars, these meticulously edited volumes will represent an epoch in the field, since they will constitute the only comprehensive scholarly edition." -Year's Work in English Studies
