This volume presents fresh approaches to classic Victorian fiction from 1830 to 1900. Consisting of a series of original essays written by prominent specialists in the field, it opens up the cultural world in which the Victorian novel was written and read. The 12 contributors provide new perspectives on how Victorian fiction relates to a range of important contemporary contexts, including class, sexuality, empire, psychology, law, visual culture, biology and the conditions of authorship. Their contributions cross traditional disciplinary boundaries, enabling readers to understand the Victorian novel 's complex engagements with diverse aspects of nineteenth-century society.

He has published on Milton, Robert Browning, Michael Field, Charles Kingsley, Robert Frost, Henrietta Huxley, Victorian agnosticism, Victorian masculinities, and co뻛dited a collection of essays on Margaret Oliphant (1999) and on Landscape, Writing and Community (2001).

Index

"[T]his book succeeds in presenting a representative selection of historicist critical thinking on panorama of themes of the novel during the period of what was, arguably, this literary form′s greatest achievement. It will be a stimulating introduction for the advanced undergraduate with an interest in the nineteenth century, and a useful lead for the postgraduate student working in the field of Victorian studies on any one of the numerous taught programmes currently on offer."
