"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

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.
