"Reading these things so you don't have to"--that sounds kind of like Eliot's stance in “Evangelical Teaching: Dr. Cumming.”
I, however, must be a glutton for punishment, b/c I read these things anyway (writing a diss on the Victorian sermon, intend to have a chapter on novel-writing preachers).

I really enjoyed this post! While writing my thesis I read a lot of didactic children's literature from nineteenth-century France and England to compare the rhetoric of Catholic and Protestant morality targeted at young readers. Whether it was "good" or "successful" in its aims, I still can't say, but I am certain that there was not a great deal of cross-pollination between cultures.
