Vision, Science and Literature, 1870-1920 : Ocular Horizons Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
This book explores the role of vision and the culture of observation in Victorian and modernist ways of seeing.
Willis charts the characterization of vision through four organizing principles-small, large, past and future-to survey Victorian conceptions of what vision was.
He then explores how this Victorian vision influenced twentieth-century ways of seeing, when anxieties over visual "truth" became entwined with modernist rejections of objectivity.
