Fairy-Tale Literature of Charles Dickens, Christina Rossetti, and George Macdonald: Antidotes to the Victorian Spiritual Crisis
2008 0-7734-5102-1
Despite growing scholarly recognition of subversive social and political content in Victorian fairy tales, their significance in relation to the oft-cited Victorian “spiritual crisis” remains largely unexplored. This interdisciplinary study addresses the critical gap by examining three literary revisions of Sleeping Beauty from the early 1860s as pointed efforts to enter the intensified religious debate following the publication of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of the Species. This book contains two color photographs.
