Reviews

"It is fitting . . . that Faye Hammill should bring Middlebrow Literary Cultures to a close in an Afterword where she quotes from

Raymond Williams's Culture and Society, 1780 1950 (1958): 'There are in fact no middlebrows; there are only ways of seeing people and books as middlebrow' (p. 300). Middlebrow Literary Cultures is a stimulating and scholarly addition to this long-running debate, and an indispensable extension to our continuing enquiries into the complications and vagaries of critical reception." - Cambridge Quarterly 2013
