Interesting Record: Eclectic Review, The;

“Various incidental features distinguish The Eclectic from other periodicals:   [it was]...a non-profit publication…donat[ing] all profits to the British and Foreign Bible Society….It at once emerges that The Eclectic bestowed more attention on American literature (indeed, all books by or about Americans) than any other English periodical of the time” (Basker, James E., in Sullivan).

“In 1851, The Eclectic Review was one of the many periodicals to review the controversial books by the Brontë sisters, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.   It states that the characters of Wuthering Heights have ‘little more power to move our sympathies than the romances of the middle ages, or the ghost stories which made our granddames tremble’” (Thompson, 131).
