Old timey book reviews

Filed under: News — marcia at 9:01 pm on Sunday, January 27, 2008

“The Atlantic Monthly” has posted some of its book reviews from as far back as the 1800s online. While I wish they had given us access to more than just a smattering of them (as well as access to ones where they were unimpressed by a work that time has elevated to a classic), it is interesting to read contemporary reviews of works of books such as “The Scarlet Letter.”
