      A Word on Children's Books. Children's literature underwent huge changes during the Victorian period. The concept of childhood as a developmental stage emerged during the Victorian era, and in response, children's literature moved away from the moral, didactic themes prevalent in the late 18th and early 19th centuries and embraced fanciful themes. Books by the most popular poets routinely sold out through several editions. Victorian poetry’s most distinctive qualities may stem, paradoxically, from its proximity to other genres and forms: theater, fiction, music, and art, all of them poetry’s competitors in a fully stocked cultural marketplace.

      By analyzing Dante's Vita Nova alongside Rossetti's Hand and Soul and St. Agnes of Intercession, which inaugurates the Victorian genre of 'imaginary portrait' tales, this book examines how Dante and Rossetti explore the tension between word and image by creating 'imaginary portraits.'.   Through approximately objects by pioneering artists including Ford Madox Brown, Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, William Morris, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Elizabeth Siddall, among others, Victorian Radicals will represent the spectrum of avant-garde practices of the Victorian period, emphasizing the response.

      Dante and the Early Astronomer: Science, Adventure, and a Victorian Woman Who Opened the Heavens Tracy Daugherty Explore the evolution of astronomy from Dante to Einstein, as seen through the eyes of trailblazing Victorian astronomer Mary Acworth Evershed. Featuring approximately works by pioneering artists including Ford Madox Brown, Edward Burne-Jones, William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, William Morris, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Elizabeth Siddall, Victorian Radicals will represent the spectrum of avant-garde practices of the Victorian era, emphasizing the response of Britain’s.
