Byatt and the Heliotropic Imagination] (WLU Press, 2004).


``Based on original research, clearly structured, carefully written, and elegantly printed, A.S. Byatt and the Heliotropic Imagination is a major contribution on one of the most successful contemporary British writers.... Campbell, now professor emerita of English at Wilfrid Laurier University, was among the first academic critics to give Byatt's writings serious consideration. This volume incorporates the earlier analysis into a comprehensive exmaination of Byatt's oeuvre down to 2002.'' -- Arnd Bohm -- The International Fiction Review, Volume 34, 2007
``This book will take its place as one of the best -- most measured, most insightful, most inclusive -- studies of Byatt to have appeared so far.'' -- Richard Todd, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam
``After the first two introductory chapters, Campbell ... analyzes eight works in order of publication. Her own insights are both inspired and solidly defended, and when she draws on the ideas of other critics, she has been careful to avoid the ideas of scholars who bend Byatt's work to their own perspectives. A.S. Byatt and the Heliotropic Imagination is an outstanding study of one of the literary greats of our time.'' -- Naomi Brun -- Canadian Book Review Annual, 2006
