A great deal has been written about Elizabeth Gaskell in the last decade. This extensively annotated guide to the literature builds upon Weyant's 1994 work on Gaskell that covered some 350 sources published between 1976-1991. This supplement identifies almost 600 new books, book chapters, journal articles, dissertations, masters theses and honors theses on the life and writings of Gaskell published since 1991. Contents include: -- two appendices listing new editions of Gaskell's works in print, as well as digital, audio and video formats --A selection of Web sites appropriate for the undergraduate and beginning graduate student --citations of many brief articles in the Gaskell Newsletter that are ignored in the standard indexes --numerous sources that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to locate --an author index and an extensive subject index to facilitate locating relevant information

Industry Reviews

This long-awaited reference text does not disappoint....this Guide is truly essential for any library that intends to hold English-language reference materials about major figures in Victorian literature....Others will benefit also: established scholars will consult it for review and reminders; non-academic readers may enjoy browsing the listings, or at least rejoice that so many students will be encouraged to pursue Gaskell studies. In short, Weyant's work admirably serves all of us who read Gaskell....this Guide will delight anybody interested in Gaskell's life and works. From the published scholar to the beginning student, from the engaged teacher to the non-academic and casual reader, any reader might enjoy browsing the entries, seeing what discoveries about Gaskell have been made and published in these ten years....And the final good news is that Weyant is still faithfully collecting each new Gaskell-related publication as it appears. With the merits of this 2004 Guide in hand, we share her hope for a future third volume.--The Gaskell Society Journal
