Customer Review

on 9 October 2013
This much more than a man's life and work, it is a image of his times and the social and literary changes going on in that era. It brings together his background, life, loves and work in a highly readable and entertaining way.

Carefully researched and referenced, it places Wilkie's writing in the context of his family, friends and aquaintances, many of whom are well known to us, in the literary and painting worlds. So we get facinating insights into other characters who were in Wilkie's social group, like Dickens and the Pre-Raphaelites.

A great read and informative about the mid victorian age.
