    It is my fault for not giving this book a higher rating However I bought it as a research tool and under the misconception that its focus was vastly different I was looking to have examples of epistolary fiction and instead got essays with very few bits of uoted text While the essays were well written and interesting they were not what I thought I was going to be getting So a note that reflects on my choice than the uality of the work
