Victorian Hauntings by Julian Wolfreys
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What does it mean to read or write with ghosts, or to suggest that acts of reading or writing are haunted? In what ways can authors in the 19th century be read so as to acknowledge the various phantom effects which return within their texts? In what ways do the traces of such "ghost writing" surface in the works of Dickens, Tennyson, Eliot and Hardy? Beginning with an exploration of matters of haunting, the uncanny, the gothic and the spectral, Julian Wolfreys traces the ghostly resonances at work in Victorian writing and how such persistence addresses issues of memory and responsibility which haunt the work of reading.
