Title

[Review of] M. Joan Chard, Victorian Pilgrimage, Sacred-Secular Dualism in the Novels of Charlotte Brontë, Elizabeth Gaskell, and George Eliot

Description

Parts of this book first appeared in the Brontë Society Transactions (1988) and our own George Eliot Fellowship Review (1984, 1989), as it was then called. That raises the question ‘are they worth reprinting?’ The answer is an unqualified ‘yes’. A relatively short book, Victorian Pilgrimage is a fine study, full of scholarship and interest for any reader of nineteenth-century literature.
