The focus of the book moves from the Victorian authors John Clare, Thomas De Quincey and George Eliot, via Henry James's precociously modernist concerns, to the twentieth-century crisis of representation and memory embodied in the works of James Joyce, Vladimir Nabokov and Samuel Beckett. The essays testify to the thematic and theoretical importance of the encounter between museum and text, which makes a lively comeback in post-modern narrative through the works of A.S. Byatt, Julian Barnes and J.G. Farrell among others.
