The Rev. Charles Kingsley, one of the Victorian age's most prolific authors, wrote poetry, novels, historical works, sermons, religious tracts, and scientific treatises, as well as political, social, and literary criticism. Among his most famous literary works are the condition-of-England novels Yeast and Alton Locke, and his historical romances Westward Ho! and Hereward the Wake. He also wrote books for children, including The Heroes, Madam How and Lady Why, and perhaps his most well known work, The Water-Babies.
The bibliography is not only a practical guide to Kingsley. It should stimulate interest in a writer who is an important, but sometimes neglected, novelist, poet, polemicist, and advocate of religious and social causes.... A valuable resource for students of the Victorian Period... * American Reference Books Annual, 2009, Vol 23 No 1 *
