MEDIA REVIEWS

'Vernon Lee: Decadence, Ethics, Aesthetics... plays an integral role in reinvigorating the literary reputation of one of the most important late-Victorian women writers.' - Kristin Mahoney, Victorian Studies

'a thoroughly stimulating, cogent, highly readable collection of essays, that will undoubtedly attract further critical attention to one of the most original interdisciplinary thinkers of her generation' - Shafquat Towheed, Nineteenth-Century Literature

'Maxwell and Pulham's joint Introduction sets the agenda with a rich biographical, cultural and critical contextualisation of Lee and her works... Catherine Maxwell and Patricia Pulham as well as Palgrave...are to be commended.' - Matthew Mitton, Women: A Cultural Review
