About this book

Victorian Time examines how literature of the era registers the psychological impact of the onset of a modern, industrialized experience of time as time-saving technologies, such as steam-powered machinery, aimed at making economic life more efficient, signalling the dawn of a new age of accelerated time.

Reviews

"Victorian Time provides a compelling, informative, and thorough study of Victorian literature in an age of rapid temporal change, and it is attentive to temporality across a range of topics that include media, science, technology, and colonialism. Ambitious in scope and precise in detail, this collection is a valuable contribution to scholarship on Victorian time in all of its multiplicity and complication." - Victorian Periodicals Review
