Summary
This volume surveys a range of visual material from the Victorian Era, from representations of the crinoline, to the illustrations that accompanied Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel Uncle Tom's Cabin and Tennyson's poetry, to paintings of adultery. It demonstrates that the space between text and image is one in which values are both constructed and questioned. The Victorian era of British history was the period of Queen Victoria's reign from 1837 until her death in 1901. It was a long period of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and national self-confidence for Britain. The author examines the dialogue between their words and images, and the meanings that are intimately related to the Victorians' view of themselves. Illustrations in Victorian publications reveal the Victorians' ideas about the world in which they lived and their notions of gender, class, and race
