Book Description

May 25 1995 0415119146 978-0415119146 1
Visualisation in Popular Fiction 1860-1960 explores the important but neglected tradition of illustrated fiction in English. It suggests new analytical approaches for its study by offering detailed discussions of a range of representative texts, including Mary Webb's Gone to Earth and Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca.
Among the issues and genres Sillars explores are:
* Victorian `narrative' paintings
* Edwardian fictional magazines
* comic strips
* illustrated children's stories
* the translation of novels into film
An insightful and highly informative work, Visualisation in Popular Fiction will be of value to students of literature, cultural studies, visual art and film.

First Sentence
Alice's question, at the beginning of a book which itself contributed much to the tradition of Victorian book illustration, conceals an important assumption - that, by 1865, when the text was written, the illustrated book had become a primary form of literary entertainment. Read the first page
