Garrett StewartWith the appearance of D.A. Miller's remarkable book, the Victorian novel has its most dazzling critic in years. Tracking diverse strategies of surveillance and incarceration into the confines of the fictional institution itself, Miller investigates Victorian novels as the often-unconscious agents of a disciplinarian culture. He thus reads fiction reading us, keeping a public in its private place. His mastery of an intricate, layered, and sinuous argument is stunning, the writing no less than superb. For all the book's overarching debt to Foucault, D.A. Miller 'do the police' in voice all his own.
—(Garrett Stewart, author of Death Sentences: Styles of Dying in British Fiction)
