About the Authors
  • Jessica Feldman sheds a pragmatist's light on the relationship between the Victorian age and Modernism by dislodging truistic notions of Modernism as an art of crisis, rupture, elitism and loss. Feldman examines the works of John Ruskin (art critic and social thinker), Dante Gabriel Rossetti (poet and painter), Augusta Evans (best-selling domestic novelist)and William James (philosopher and psychologist) and relates them to select twentieth-century creations.

    • Offers insights into the links between Victorian literature and Modernist literature
    • Examines a broad range of writers and artists, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Ruskin and William James
    • Will appeal to literary historians as well as critical theorists
