`his Miscellaneous Works are coming out in this fine edition under Roger Sharrock's general editorship'
John Drury, English Literature
' In Volume V, Graham Midgley is at pains to highlight Bunyan's verbal skills, and he achieves this with genuine sensitivity.
Nigel Smith, Keble College, Oxford. Review of English Studies
'Many of the introductions to the volumes of The Miscellaneous Works draw out the parallels between the major writings and the various religious tracts. The Bunyan of The Miscellaneous Works is very much a preacher and theologian. As a result of such work on Bunyan's sectarian milieu, Bunyan's relation to his context is coming into ever sharper focus. These beautifully bound and meticulously edited volumes are positive encouragements to
the reader. It would be difficult to overpraise them.'
