John Plunkett, Ana Parejo Vadillo, Regenia Gagnier, Angelique Richardson, Rick Rylance, Paul Young
An anthology of both familiar and previously unavailable primary texts that illuminate the world of nineteenth-century ideas. An expert team introduce and annotate a range of original social, cultural, political and historical documents necessary for contextualising key literary texts from the Victorian period.
‘An excellent anthology of Victorian source materials…well organised, lucidly introduced and broad in outlook’. – Gail Marshall, Professor of Victorian Literature and Director of the Victorian Studies Centre, University of Leicester, UK. ‘A portable infinity. It is difficult to imagine a course on nineteenth-century British literature that could not make ample use of the touchstones gathered here-or a Victorianist who could fail to be astonished by the strange salvage this book mixes with the familiar.’ – Paul Saint-Amour, Associate Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania, USA.
