A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This interdisciplinary study argues for the vital importance of visual culture as a force shaping the Victorian novel s formal development and reading history. It shows how authors like Charles Dickens, William Makepeace Thackeray, Wilkie Collins and Thomas Hardy borrowed language and conceptual formations from art world spaces - the art market, the museum, the large-scale exhibition, and art critical discourse - not only when they chose certain subjects or refined certain aspects of realism, but also when they tried to adapt various genres of the novel for a new and newly vociferous mass audience. Quandaries specific to new forms of public display affected authors sense of their relationship with their own public. Debates about how best to appreciate a new mass of visual information impacted authors sense of how people read, and consequently the development of particular novel forms like the multi-plot novel, the historical novel, the sensation novel, and fin-de-siecle fiction.
