Beer, Gillian. “Dispersed As We Are.” Times Literary Supplement, No. 4,813 (30 June 1995): 6–7.

Beer praises the “prodigious achievement” of the three volumes of No Man's Land, but notes several shortcomings in the works of method, style, and scope.

Frank, Katherine. A review of The Madwoman in the Attic, by Susan Gubar and Sandra Gilbert. Philological Quarterly 59, No. 3 (Summer, 1980) 381–83.

Frank calls The Madwoman in the Attic indispensable, and asserts that the book will reform the way audiences will read women authors.

Norris, Margot. A review of No Man's Land, by Susan Gubar and Sandra Gilbert. Comparative Literature 43, No. 2 (Spring, 1991): 199–201.

Norris argues that volume one of No Man's Land is an unconvincing study because Gubar and Gilbert are reductionist and narrow in their scholarship.

Additional coverage of Gubar's life and career is available in the following sources published by the Gale Group: Contemporary Authors, Vol. 108; Contemporary Authors New Revision Series, Vols. 45 and 70; Feminist Writers; Major 20th-Century Writers; and Literature Resource Center.
