Summary
"The previously unpublished essays collected here are by literary scholars who have dedicated their lives to reading and studying nineteenth-century British fiction and the Victorian world. Each writes about a novel that has acquired personal relevance to them--a work that has become entwined with their own story, or that remains elusive or compelling for reasons hard to explain"--
