Description

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.
