about

What role do objects play in realist narratives as they move between societies and their different systems of value as commodities, as charms, as gifts, as trophies, or as curses? This book explores how the struggle to represent objects in British colonial realism corresponded with historical struggles over the material world and its significance.
DEBORAH SHAPPLE SPILLMAN is assistant professor in the Department of English at the University of Oregon, USA.
