Names and Stories

Emilia Dilke and Victorian Culture

Kali Israel

Studying an individual life as it was lived under many different names, Names and Stories investigates nineteenth-century British culture while also employing critical and historical engagements with theoretical questions. The book examines the histories of gender, knowledge, families, bodies, art, and political thought in Victorian Britain, contributing to both literary studies and cross-disciplinary feminist scholarship. By exploring key facets of British cultural and political history in the 1800s, this new work rigorously addresses wider themes of narrative, figuration, and historical writing and reading.
