about this item

Scholars of literature and art explore how literary works of the 19th century are being transformed into graphic novels in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. They cover Dispossession: Simon Grennan's graphic adaptation of Trollope's John Caldigate; 19th-century visualizations; and using the Victorians: appropriation, adaptation, and historiography. Among their topics are adapting and displaying multiple temporalities: what became of John Caldigate and Maupassant's Boule de Suif in Dispossesion and Battaglia's Contres et nouvelles de guerre, allegorical landscapes: the psychology of seeing in Trollop's later novels, complex meanings in illustrated literature 1860-80, neo-Victorianism and the tyranny of the sexual taboo, allegories of graphiation: Alberto Breccia's counter-censorial versions of E. A. Poe's Valdemar, and an incomplete project: graphic adaptations of Moby-Dick and the ethics of response. Distributed in the US by Corvell University Press.
