Product Overview

Focusing on the work of the aesthete and intellectual Vernon Lee, this collection offers a wide range of critical writings that reflect the diversity of Lee''s own interests. Organized in a broadly chronological order these essays examine key pieces in Lee''s oeuvre, offering original approaches to a number of Lee''s works including "Euphorion," "Hauntings: Fantastic Stories," "Prince Albert and the Lady Snake," "Louis Norbert," "The Ballet of the Nations," "The Handling of Words," and "Music and Its Lovers." The book will also shed new light on Lee''s relationship with contemporaries such as her brother, the poet Eugene Lee-Hamilton, her friend and mentor Walter Pater, and the art historian and fellow intellectual Bernard Berenson.
