Praise For The Novel: An Alternative History: Beginnings to 1600

"This second volume continues the rollicking, wondrous journey begun in the first, starting with Miguel de Cervantes's 1605 Don Quixote and continuing through Hugh Henry Brackenridge's 1792 American satire Modern Chivalry. The depth of scholarship is breathtaking, and readers will appreciate Moore's attempts at levity by interjecting moments of humorous editorializing…. VERDICT Recommended for academic libraries and those interested in an expanded history of the novel" - Library Journal
