British Fiction, 18001829

ANON. Sophia (1818)

Contemporary Reviews

Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 88 (Mar 1819): 329.

A dull tale of revolting villainy, in which scenes of vice are displayed as warnings to inexperienced females, whose safety would be greater in foregoing than in receiving such instruction. The book contains also many improbabilities, some passages which evince great ignorance of modern usages, and some erroneous grammar; as in vol. i. p. 77., ‘Sophia had began speaking;’ —p. 181., ‘she has not spoke,’ &c. &c.
