Summary
"Spatial dynamics and imagery surface as distinctive and insightful elements for investigating female figures in Victorian art and literature. This book explores the concept that space can be a productive and creative realm - rather than merely an empty or confirming category - for personal development. Through discussing representative Victorian paintings of the mid- to late-1800s, as well as novels by women authors, Spatial Dynamics and Female Development in Victorian Art and Novels illustrates the ways visual and literary genres utilize space. This book sharpens our view of nineteenth-century women's perspectives on themselves, and recognizes connections between the visual and literary arts."--Jacket
