Proposing the concept of transformation as a key to understanding Victorian literature, this collection focuses on issues related to genre, nationalism, and desire, to explore the ways in which the nineteenth-century conceived of, responded to, and created change. The contributors treat, among other authors, Victor Hugo, Anthony Trollope, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Thomas Carlyle, and writers of neo-Victorian novels such as Peter Carey and A. S. Byatt.
