'This is the seventh and final volume of the Clarendon Edition of the Novels of the Brontes ... not only have they all been edited with scrupulous scholarship but great care has obviosuly been taken to make them handsome in binding, layout and typography'Douglas Hewitt, Pembroke College, Oxford, Notes and Queries, March 1993
It is particularly gratifying to have a definitive library edition of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. (reveiw of English Studies)
It is obvious to the careful reader that a massive amount of textual evidence has been compressed into this Clarendon volume. The Introduction to the Clarendon edition ... is a model of its type ... Rosengarten unequivocally introduces the text, providing the reader with a context for the composition and publication of the novel. Nowhere in Brontë scholarship is it possible to find such a complete and valuable compilation of the publication history ... One can only admire the grasp Rosengarten has of the myriad typographical and substantive errors that mar the variant versions of the early editions and the lucid way in which he presents and explains such complex data ... a book well worth having: it is scholarly, handsomely produced and easy to read ... provides a fitting conclusion to the Clarendon series and, as such, represents a milestone in Brontë scholarship. (Peter L. Shillingsburg, Mississippi State University, TEXT, Volume 9, 1997)
