Spatial dynamics and imagery surface as distinctive and insightful elements for investigating female figures in Victorian art and literature. This book explores the concept that space can be a productive and creative realm, rather than merely an empty or confining category, for personal development. Through discussing representative Victorian paintings of the mid- to late-1800s, as well as novels by women authors, Spatial Dynamics and Female Development in Victorian Art and Novels illustrates the ways visual and literary genres utilize space. This book sharpens our view of nineteenth-century women’s perspectives on themselves, and recognizes connections between the visual and literary arts.

About the Author:

The Author: Liana F. Piehler is an Instructor of English, as well as Writing Center Director, at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. She received her Ph.D. in English Literature from Drew University, and her B.A. in English Literature and Studio Art from Mount Holyoke College. In addition to her literary work, she is also an artist.

Review:

«Liana Piehler’s scholarship is exemplary: she selected from the enormously rich fields of Victorian art and fiction the texts and images her book required; she consulted virtually all relevant secondary work on them; and she understands thoroughly the principles of inclusion and exclusion that governed her choices. Her analytic and interpretive work on both visual images and literary texts is graceful, sensitive, penetrating. She develops an idea about women’s spaces that is not only original but illuminating. It enriches one’s sense of both fields and carries forward much of the work done by feminist scholars of the last couple of decades. The writing throughout is a model of clarity and subtlety.» (Janet Burstein, Professor of English, Drew University)
«Liana Piehler takes a revealing cross-disciplinary ploy to open up meaning in selected Victorian novels. She is able to get at many matters of the novels that are unspoken-matters that have to do not only with place and space but with psychological spaces between things. As she says in the first sentences, ‘Individuals claim and make spaces their own’. Her foundational chapter of analysis of artworks is in itself an original amplification of current art historical discourse. She moves beyond the discovery of Victorian female spatial/social delimitations to discover in the images and in the novels those possibilities and alternatives that are intimated as opening up for the female.» (Sara Henry-Corrington, Professor of Art History, N.E.H. Distinguished Professor of Humanities, Drew University)
