With chapters focusing on particular novels, this book charts the transitions of Victorian literary and cultural concerns across the Nineteenth century. Julian Wolfreys questions how the Victorians identified themselves in their modernity and discusses how literature mediated the construction of identities through notions of cultural memory.

Pressestimmen

'By far the most engaging and persuasive account of Victorian fiction I have read. Dickens to Hardy 1837-1884 is packed with extraordinarily dexterous and astute readings, lively interventions in contemporary critical debates, and brilliant insights into how we should conceptualise the Victorian novel.' - John Brannigan, University College Dublin, Republic of Ireland
