"SEL, a leading journal in its field, is indispensable reading for those interested in frontier scholarship and criticism on English literature."
-J. Hillis Miller

University of California, Irvine
"Of the important journals in my field(s)--journals like ELR, ELH, RQ, Representations--I thinkSEL is the one most committed to soliciting and printing good work by younger scholars at the graduate student and untenured faculty levels."
-Harry Berger Jr.
Emeritus Professor of Literature
University of California
"Since my introduction to SEL as a graduate student I've remained a faithful (and grateful) reader. I know of no critical essays that have been of greater value to me in understanding the trajectory of literary studies than the ones in SEL devoted to a review of recent scholarship."
Professor of English and Comparative Literature
". . . one of the few journals I consistently admire--and even read! Over these years of academic trends, it's kept its unique scholarly identity, becoming neither modish nor boring. The review essays alone are sensationally learned and helpful."
