CHOICE ReviewRogers's annotated bibliography presents a chronological analysis of the critical reception accorded Ann Radcliffe beginning with contemporary reviews and extending through 1995. In nine sections with three appendixes, this work begins with a 20-page biographical sketch of Radcliffe. The limited biographical information that exists concerning Radcliffe originates from her husband's accounts of her life. The bibliography lists editions and translations. Then comes the critical analysis of Radcliffe's works, which Rogers subdivides into seven separate sections: book-length criticism, dissertations, bibliographies, contemporary criticism, later 19th-century criticism, and two parts for the 20th-century response. Each section is arranged chronologically and indexed using seven codes. Although this excessive subdividing of the criticism may cause some confusion, the scholarship and research are sound and thorough. Perhaps a single chronological progression, 1823-1995, would have created a resource easier to use. An excellent index sorts the criticism by novel and by subject. An admirable work with little competition, this should be considered for all college and university collections. R. B. Meeker Chicago State University
