      "An open, richly interlinked web of Dickens' world, 'The Dickens Web' is designed to be extensible and adaptable. 'The Dickens Web' is the landmark of the great experiment in hypertextual teaching and research begun by Landow and others in the Intermedia project at Brown. Perhaps the best-known pedagogical hypertext, 'The Dickens Web' remains among the finest examples of hypertextual scholarship."--Eastgate Systems, Inc.
