Victoriana: histories, criticisms, fictions

Kaplan, Cora (2005) Victoriana: histories, criticisms, fictions, Edinburgh, Scotland, University of Edinburgh Press, 192pp.

Record type: Book


"Victoriana" now includes an astonishing range of objects, reproductions, histories, fictions, adaptations, pastiches and parodies that represent the recycling and rewriting of the Victorian past in the second half of the twentieth century. Victoriana considers this phenomenon and its meaning. In this series of essays, Cora Kaplan reflects on, with critical insight and panache, our peculiar and enduring fascination with things Victorian, ranging from Sanderon's "William Morris" fabrics to feminism's obsession with Bronte's Jane Eyre. Two further essays, one on class, one on Raymond Williams and the 1840s, ask how twentieth-century critics, themselves embedded in the legacy of Victorian social and sexual politics, have negotiated nineteenth-century categories of difference.
