Articulating Bodies

The Narrative Form of Disability and Illness in Victorian Fiction

Kylee-Anne Hingston

Liverpool University Press

Representations Health Disability Culture and Society LUP

  • Narratological approach that offers a close reading of narrative structure, investigating both the macro and the micro of narrative representations of disability in a way not done before
  • By considering the textual construction of corporeality rather than centering in on bodies now considered disabled or on a single kind of disability, Articulating Bodies accommodates the fluidity of Victorian body categorization
  • Unique breadth of appeal as this work contributes to the fields of Victorian studies, genre studies, disability studies, medical humanities, and narratological studies
  • Potential teaching resource due to its original approach to canonical texts such as The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
