Industry Reviews

"A model of editorial tact, thoroughness, and clarity. Not only does [this edition] greatly enlarge the canon of Cowper's prose, it provides at every point, unobtrusively and economically, exactly what the reader needs: a chronology of Cowper's life at the beginning of each volume, brief
introductory characterizations of the volume as a whole and of Cowper's individual correspondents during the relevant period, precise textual information, concise annotation, lists of letters included and of those known to be missing, a fine index...indispensable."--Patricia Meyer Spacks, Journal of
English and German Philology
.,."all should be pleased with the authoritative text and the editors' criteria for selection."--The Eighteenth Century: A Current Bibliography
