Overview

Shaping Belief explores how the energy of belief came to manifest itself in nineteenth-century writing.

By re-visioning the place of belief in nineteenth-century writing this collection provides important forays into current thinking, both on the position occupied by belief within nineteenth-century literary studies, and within contemporary culture itself.
