It is not the least of Wu's achievements that he brings to light the considerable editorial and forensic effort...of the Hazlitt scholars before him... New Writings of William Hazlitt, must be acknowledged as a splendid tribute, to those scholars as to the great essayist himself. (Uttara Natarajan, Review of English Studies)
Hazlitt's most devoted recent servant has been Duncan Wu... Wu has done very useful service in gathering this material and his extensive annotations cast erudite light on an entire literary milieu. (Seamus Perry, Times Literary Supplement)
