Sabine Schülting, "Dirt in Victorian Literature and Culture: Writing Materiality"
Publisher: Routledge | 2016 | ISBN: 1138932906 | English | PDF | 216 pages | 1.7 Mb

Addressing the Victorian obsession with the sordid materiality of modern life, this book studies dirt in nineteenth-century English literature and the Victorian cultural imagination. Dirt litters Victorian writing – industrial novels, literature about the city, slum fiction, bluebooks, and the reports of sanitary reformers.

Are We There Yet?: Virtual Travel and Victorian Realism by Alison Byerly
English | Dec 26, 2012 | ISBN: 0472071866 | 264 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Even as the expansion of river and railway networks in the nineteenth century made travel easier than ever before, staying at home and fantasizing about travel turned into a favorite pastime.
