Summary
  • This book is about a group of Victorian British writers and artists whose work emerges from recollection and whose texts embody the experience of nostalgia. In its discussion of Charles Darwin's The Voyage of the Beagle, Robert Louis Stevenson's prose and poetry, Elizabeth Gaskell's narratives, John Ruskin's Praeterita, Walter Pater's 'The Child in the House', Ford Madox Brown's The Last of England, Richard Redgrave's The Emigrants' Last Sight of Home, and a series of J.M.W. Turner's engravings, this study concentrates on the longing for a past that traverses the span of these writers' and artists' own lives
  • It examines their particular experience of the nostalgic moment; it also provides an occasion to re-examine the idea of nostalgia itself and to reflect on the act of recollection that accompanies it
