Editorial Reviews

Review

Carolyn Betensky brings an original point of view and an engaging writer’s voice to bear on the well-developed subject of the Victorian social-problem novel. In her analysis, novels stage competitions for feeling and suffering between representatives of powerful and powerless classes, acting finally as self-comforting fictions for the bourgeois reader and writer. Betensky’s skills and talents as a critic are evident. The writing style is quite delightful―fresh, frank, and clear, with wonderful moments of ironic wit.

(Rosemarie Bodenheimer, Boston College, author of Knowing Dickens)
