The York Notes Companion to Victorian Literature explores the drama, poetry and prose of an age of great innovation, that engaged with debates about empire, science and evolution, print culture, and gender. Examining classic texts such as Gaskell’s North and South and Tennyson’s In Memoriam, alongside lesser known works from the genre of sensation fiction and the fin de siècle, the Companion explores examples from a range of genres in detailed commentaries, and guides students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of Victorian literature.

About the author: Beth Palmer is a Lecturer in English at the University of Surrey.
