Advertising, Subjectivity and the Nineteenth-Century Novel : Dickens, Balzac and the Language of the Walls Hardback
by S. Thornton
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Nineteenth-Century Writing and Culture series
From 1830 to 1870 advertising brought in its wake a new understanding of how the subject read and how language operated.
Sara Thornton presents a crucial moment in print culture, the early recognition of what we now call a 'virtual' world, and proposes new readings of key texts by Dickens and Balzac.
