About this product
- DescriptionThe World in Play tells the story of how certain Victorian literary misfits-working-class melodramatists of the 1830s, the reclusive Emily Bronte, free-spirits Robert Louis Stevenson and John Muir, mischievous Oscar Wilde, among others-struggled to find their bearings in a modern world trapped, like Alice, in play, in a ludic microcosm of itself.
- Author BiographyMatthew Kaiser is Associate Professor of English at Harvard University. He is the editor of Crime and Horror in Victorian Literature and Culture (two volumes, 2010), Philip Meadows Taylor's Confessions of a Thug (2010), and Alan Dale's A Marriage Below Zero (forthcoming).
