Victoriana

by Cora Kaplan, Victoriana Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Victoriana book, In Victoriana, leading feminist cultural critic Cora Kaplan reflects on our modern obsession with Victorian culture. She considers evocations of the nineteenth century in literature ( The French Lieutenants' Woman by John Fowles, Possession by A. S. Byatt, Nice Work by David Lodge, The Master by Colm Tóibín, Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst), film (Jane Campion's The Piano), and biography (Peter Ackroyd's Dickens). Why, she asks, does Jane Eyre still evoke tears and rage from its readers, and why has Henry James become fiction's favorite late-Victorian author? Within Victoriana, Kaplan argues, lies a modern history of its own that reflects the shifting social and cultural concerns of the last few decades. Distance has lent a sense of antique charm and exoticism to even the worst abuses of the period, but it has also allowed innovative writers and filmmakers to use Victorian settings and language to develop a new and challenging aesthetic. Issues of class, gender, empire, and race are explored as well as the pleasures and dangers of imitating or referencing narrative forms, individual histories, and belief systems. As Kaplan makes clear, Victoriana can be seen as a striking example of historical imagination on the move, restless and unsettled.

Victoriana

by Emily Isaacson, Victoriana Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Victoriana book, Victoriana is the poetry of times past. Children run in the fields of wildflowers. The seasons' many colors have found their voice at last, with dedicated romance. From celebrated author and artist Emily Isaacson, we are given a breath of fresh air of all things Victoria in her work of art in three sections. From flowers arranged, to gingham aprons, nostalgia rules this era. Victoriana by Isaacson is a revisiting of Victorian times, and their three tier influence on modern day relationships: decor, art, and thought. She is the creator of many quotable moments on the road to Victoria.
