The essays of Q.D. Leavis, in this third volume of her critical works, investigate previously unexplored aspects of Victorian literature. The majority of essays were written toward the end of her life and have never been published. Also included are essays and reviews that appeared originally in Scrutiny. Leavis focuses on the novel of religious controversy, the Anglo-Irish novel, women writers of the nineteenth century, and certain aspects of George Eliot's work. She examines these topics from literary, historical and sociological perspectives. The volume affords valuable new insights into nineteenth-century literature, reinforcing Leavis' reputation as a pioneering and penetrating critic.
