KIRKUS REVIEW

A delightful picture of three generations of the Patmore family and the part it played in British literature, through letters, articles, etc. From Hazlitt and Lamb through the Pre-Raphaelite group, and on, this concentrates on Coventry Patmore, whose The Angel In The House sold quarter of a million copies, and whose portrait is here frankly painted. Try this on your Victorian addicts and those who like entertainment with their biography.
