Contributing greatly to the ongoing revaluation of the Victorians, these six essays capture fresh perspectives in presenting among the subjects a fuller grounding for Browning's poetry, a clearer awareness of the role of comedy in Arnold's prose, and a look at Trollope as a crucial addition to his era's exhaustive studies of symbolic parent-child relationships.
