About this title

Synopsis:

This book explores the importance of sympathy as a central idea behind Victorian fiction, and an animating principle of novel reading generally. Sympathy, Brigid Lowe argues, deserves a much more important role as both a subject and a guiding principle for literary criticism.

Review:

'An ambitious, intelligent and courageous book... Lowe presents an unusually forceful answer to the question of what we might learn from reading Victorian fiction.' —Adrian Poole, Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Cambridge



'This is a wonderfully - well - sympathetic reading of some classic Victorian fictions in their extended engagement with the large matter of human sympathy, a matter often touched on by literary historians but never with Brigid Lowe’s reach nor anything like her delicately probing touch.' —Valentine Cunningham, Professor of English Language and Literature at Oxford University
