Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Why we don't read the New York Times for scholarly commentary on the Victorians:

David Foster

I'm not a literary scholar, but I thought the Times article seemed rather confused. When she says "Readers are now used to the notion of a graphic novel...But something very different is happens in "Vanity Fair"...she never goes on to explain *how* it is different.

Although she takes the obligatory shot at technology, I suspect that the best chance most readers will have of seeing the original etchings will be when someone puts it up on the web...

Actually, the etchings are in the Norton Critical Edition of Vanity Fair. It's true that the illustrations are key to interpreting Thackeray's text, since they provide additional information and complicate the narrative at key points.
