    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.
