"Unfolding the South" presents a new vision of Anglo-Italian cultural relations in the late Romantic and Victorian periods. Responding to recent developments in the fields of literary criticism and art history, the book covers a stimulating range of canonical and non-canonical writers and artists. Eleven essays offer new perspectives on well-known figures such as Elizabeth Barrett Browning, George Eliot, and Mary Shelley, together with discussions of writers and artists of newly-emerging importance.
