'Carolyn W. de la L. Oulton's searching new study...promises to deepen our appreciation of the role nineteenth-century writers played in establising the bases for present-day appeals to the existence of a culture of toleration.' - Times Literary Supplement
Literature And Religion In Mid-Victorian Englandby Carolyn Oulton
This book places Dickens and Wilkie Collins against such important figures as John Henry Newman and George Eliot in seeking to recover their response to the religious controversies of mid-nineteenth century England. While much recent criticism has tended to overlook or dismiss their religious pronouncements, this book foregrounds the religious aspect of their writing and relocates their most important work in the context of contemporary debate. The response of both writers is seen to be complex and fraught with tension.
