Klappentext

His study draws on legal and literary theory to trace this important convergence of disciplines in a series of canonical Victorian and Modernist texts.



Zusammenfassung
Law and literature have been two of the most powerful discourses in the construction of social reality. The relationship between the two has emerged as a vital new area of study, as literary representation has proved immensely influential in framing popular understanding of law.
