The Victorian Freak Show: The Significance of Disability and Physical Differences in 19th-Century Fiction

by Lillian Craton


"An important contribution to the growing study of physical differences in the nineteenth century ...the most significant innovation of the project is the way in which Craton uncovers the often positively valence of such differences as they are depicted in literary texts ... scholars in disability studies and Victorian studies will find this book useful and compelling, particularly in its discussions of fat and body size, yet it is readable for undergraduates as well." – Victorian Studies
