The authors keep in mind how word and image negotiate and compete for each other's spaces.
They seek to interrogate how image arises from absences in texts, and how image gives rise to narrative or voice.
Topics include ekphrasis, illustration, literary representations of artists, the visual in writing, the staging of images and the textualization of theatrical tableaux, and related cultural and ideological tropes.
This is covered in three main areas: ideological and philosophical resonances of image and text in fiction; the peculiar fusion of text and image that was the bread and butter of the Pre-Raphaelites; and book illustration, especially the tensions between writer and artist as authors of the text.
The volume will be of interest to students and scholars in the field of Victorian literary and art history studies.
