Editorial Reviews


"Byerly's 16 pages of bibliography reflect the considerable scholarship of the past 25 years on Victorian theatrical and musical performance, art as painting or illustration, and architecture as cultural record." Choice

"Alison Byerly's rich, stimulating, wide-ranging, and admirably compact new book raises a provocative set of questions." Australasian Victorian Studies Journal

"...makes an important contribution to the study of Victorian culture." Victorian Periodicals Review

"... a persuasive, thoroughly readable, and well-constructed book." Jennifer Green-Lewis, Victorian Studies

"...a useful and stimulating contribution to studies of the interrelations among the arts in Victorian England...All students will enjoy and, one hopes, learn something from Byerly's clear thinking and writing." Modern Philology

Book Description

This book examines the representation of a variety of arts SH primarily painting, theatre, and music SH within the work of major nineteenth-century novelists. It charts a historical progression, from Romantic poetry, through mid-century Realism, to Aestheticism, showing how authors used references to other forms of art to illuminate their own aesthetic ideals. Examining the aesthetic theory and cultural practice of different arts, Alison Byerly demonstrates the importance of artistic representation to the development of Victorian Realism.
