'Secrecy and Disclosure in Victorian Fiction offers persuasive readings of Victorian fiction to argue that the period saw distinct forms of duplicity emerge. May makes inspired use of early- and mid-twentieth-century sociologists Georg Simmel and Erving Goffman, who theorized secrecy as fundamental to human subjectivity and sociality. As May shows, the simultaneous social requirement for transparency on the one hand and secrecy on the other was a central paradox of Victorian fiction.' Elizabeth Carolyn Miller, University of California, Davis, USA
