Page 99 test

I edit a books blog that has recently run a couple of items that may be of interest to members of The Brontë Society.

The Page 99 Test invites authors to look at page 99 of their books at see if it faithfully represents the entire work. This "test" was inspired by Ford Madox Ford's observation, "Open the book to page ninety-nine and read, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you."

Leading scholars are also invited to apply the test to classic works.

Recently, Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre made appearances on the blog.

Thank you for your attention.
