About this product
- DescriptionNorman Vance has written the first full-length study of the impact on Victorian Britain of the history and literature of ancient Rome. His comprehensive account shows how t only scholars and poets but also engineers, soldiers, scientists and politicians, gained inspiration from the writing, theory and practice of their Roman predecessors.Professor Vance provides a fascinating account of the sense of connection Victorian Britain felt for the Roman experience, a connection made the more complex because Britain had once been a Roman colony and because Christianity took hold and spread under the Roman empire.
- Author BiographyNorman Vance is Professor of English at the University of Sussex. His previous books include The Sinews of the Spirit (1985), a study of Victorian Christian Manliness, and Irish Literature, a Social History (1990).
