PHILLIPS, John. Lionel: Or, the Last of the Pevenseys
Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 89 (June 1819): 210.
In this novel, such conversations as seem intended to be playful
or sentimental are strained and obscure, and the fair Clara is made
to harangue her lover like a metaphysician: yet, in other passages,
an occasional force of language, and some interesting scenes, induce
us to believe that the writer, by cultivating a more simple style,
might produce works that would be generally pleasing.
