Some Victorian Links

A little pre-Christmas Victorian-y reading:

The Victorian Peeper has an interesting piece on George Frederic Watts‘ 1885 painting Hope (above), ‘The Victorian Painting That Inspired Barack Obama’.

Rohan Maitzen thinks Silas Marner is ‘every bit as good a secular fable for the holidays as A Christmas Carol–better, even.’

Adam Roberts writes about Zola’s 1892 novel The Debacle.

Miriam Burnstein considers Paz’s 2006 study Dickens and Barnaby Rudge, and in particular the differences between historians reading literature and literary critics doing it.
