Editorial Reviews

"What is it that our current obsession with the Victorians in fiction, film, TV, and even theme parks, reveals about our anxieties and desires in the twenty-first century? This coherent, detailed and timely study addresses this fascinating question in a lively and engaging way. Heilmann and Llewellyn provide a valuable account of what is currently one of the most interesting areas of literary studies, as well as introducing us to a host of twenty-first century texts which have not as yet been widely discussed. " -- Diana Wallace, Reader in English, University of Glamorgan, UK
