Editorial Reviews


"Admirably surveys More's life and work." -- Choice

"Demers sets out to rescue Hannah More from the hostility of her recent feminist critics by arguing for the significance of the writer's melioristic philosophy as a means to galvanize middle- and upper-class women to dispense charity to the poor and obscure." -- Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900

"A concise book that will be most appreciated by readers with an interest in literary analysis and a prior understanding of the subject and the period. Demers works hard to present a balanced account of More's life by examining her entire career, not simply selected aspects." -- The Lion and the Unicorn

"Offers an excellent overview of More's career and life. Demers has organized a wide variety of published and unpublished material into a coherent and interesting assessment of Hannah More, arguing convincingly for her importance and for the need to reconsider how the opposed values of critics and writers might influence the production of literary biography and criticism." -- University of Toronto Quarterly

"Demers does a good job of fusing many bits of information into a cohesive whole so that Hannah More's life and work, both easily caricatured, become available to the reader in their complexity." -- Wordsworth Circle

"The value of Demer's work is precisely that More is more complex, more fascinating, more substantial, even more influential that we have recognized." -- Year's Work in English Studies
