Abstract and Keywords

Drawing on recent scholarship on nineteenth-century periodicals, reviewing practices, and readership, this essay defines some of the trends and tendencies in Victorian novel reviewing from the 1830s to the end of the era. It suggests how the complicated web of influences between books and periodicals, authors and reviewers, and readers and publishers helped shape both the novels themselves and their contemporary reception.
