“In this respect, the Encyclopedia brings together a very wide range of material that would otherwise not be so easily accessible. To some extent, it even redresses the canonical centrality of the well-known names by locating them very firmly within their own historical context and in relation to the literary culture of the time.”  (Journal of the Northern Renaissance, 1 December 2012)

“As such, it would be a strong contender for any academic library, of good use in a public library, and will work best when placed alongside the online Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Literature, though this is not essential to get value from the set.”  (Reference Reviews, 1 December 2012)

“Summing Up: Recommended.  Lower-division undergraduates through graduate students.”  (Choice, 1 July 2012)
