Major critical thinkers have found in the nineteenth century the origins of contemporary consumerism, sexual science, gay culture, and feminism. And postmodern theory, which once drove a wedge between contemporary interpretation and its historical objects, has lately displayed a new self-consciousness about its own appropriations of the past. This diverse collection of essays begins a long-overdue discussion of how postmodernism understands the Victorian as its historical predecessor. Contributors: Nancy Armstrong, Ian Baucom, Jay Clayton, Mary A. Favret, Simon Gikandi, Jennifer Green-Lewis, Kali Israel, Laurie Langbauer, Susan Lurie, John McGowan, Judith Roof, Hilary M. Schor, Ronald R. Thomas, and Shelton Waldrep._x000B_
