The Novel and the Heart: 1840-1940

Project description

Bringing to light the scientific and literary perceptions of the heart

The heart is one of the most important tropes in western literature. From the mid-19th century, however, no study exists on the heart and the novel form, including the use of the trope. Addressing this, the EU-funded Novel and the Heart project will investigate, using a multidisciplinary approach, the heart as a rhetorical figure in anglophone fiction of the Victorian (1837-1901) and modernist (1901-1939) periods. The project's work will lead to a monograph, The Novel and the Heart: 1840-1940, and an edited collection, The Body and the Novel: 1800-1940.
