Format: Hardcover
Pre-Raphaelitism's influence during the long nineteenth century was far-reaching, affecting artistic and literary thought in places, media, and times far removed from its origins in 1848 London. Worldwide Pre-Raphaelitism examines the movement's development beyond England, from the continental "immortals" glorified by the nascent Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood to later reactions against and in sympathy with the ideals of the movement after it had ended. This collection of essays by art historians, literary critics, fashion historians, women's studies scholars, and independent researchers from around the world enhances our understanding of the global impact of Pre-Raphaelitism on the art-historical and literary developments of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Other scholars have praised this collection, too:

"These essays offer great range and depth and provide a global perspective that significantly revises our understanding of Pre-Raphaelitism. They demonstrate Pre-Raphaelitism's continuities with a plethora of discourses and phenomena in world literature and art." - Nicholas Frankel, author of _Oscar Wilde's Decorated Books_

"This book presents a nice balance of literary and art-historical concerns and a wonderful geographical selection that studies the interchanges of this 'English' movement with a number of countries, including Canada, India, the United States, and many in Europe. A fascinating collection." - James Najarian, author of _Victorian Keats: Manliness, Sexuality and Desire_
