Vision, Science and Literature, 1870-1920: Ocular Horizons

Couverture
Routledge, 6 oct. 2015 - 320 pages
This book explores the Victorian concept of vision across scientific and cultural forms. Willis charts the characterization of vision through four organizing principles – small, large, past and future – to arrive at a Victorian conception of what vision was. Willis then explores how this Victorian vision influenced twentieth-century ways of seeing.
