About the Author

Martha Stoddard Holmes is Associate Professor of Literature and Writing Studies at California State University, San Marcos.


Highly recommended... Holmes moves seamlessly from novelists like Charles Dickens to sociologists like Henry Mayhew to autobiographers like John Kitto. - Choice ""An absolutely stunning book that will make a significant contribution to both Victorian literary studies and disability studies."" - Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Emory University ""Establishes that Victorian melodrama informs many of our contemporary notions of disability... We have inherited from the Victorians not pandemic disability, but rather the complex of sympathy and fear."" - Victorian Studies
