British Fiction, 18001829

CORP, Harriet. Cottage Sketches (1812)

Contemporary Reviews

Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 69 (Sept 1812): 97.

Much religious reflection is displayed in these volumes, and they may be useful as containing various examples of the comfort and practicability of active benevolence: but it is difficult to determine for what class of readers they are calculated, since the language is not sufficiently correct to insure attention from cultivated minds; while the story of a masquerade in a farm-house, and the other absurdities of Miss Jones, are so extravagant that we hope they are needless as a warning to persons in a humbler sphere.
