Victorian Treatments of History

To do an extensive study of Victorian responses to history, considering treatments of the past in non-fictional history writing, historical novels, journalism, poetry, painting and architecture. The historical and sociological writings of Thomas Carlyle, the major English historical thinker of the age, will be studied in-depth. The Gothic Revival public buildings in England will also be studied. P.I. has written a previous book on this subject—The Ritual of Interpretation, so this is an on-going project on the significance of historical consciousness among the Victorians as a framework within which one could examine and judge the present.
