Scholarly Commentary

Guest Editor: PC Fleming


This review was Heeley’s second contribution to the January issue of The Oxford and Cambridge Magazine . In one of the shortest pieces in any of the twelve issues of the magazine, Heeley praises Kingsley’s accessible, unornamented language and his opposition to “popular sentiment” as contrary to the Church Catechism. Kingsley is one of the authors whom the Morris brotherhood most admired, and is referred to in several other essays in The Oxford and Cambridge Magazine (see Burne-Jones’s essay on Thackeray, Fulford’s essay on women’s education and Cracroft’s essay on popular lectures.
