About this book

This book asks a provocative question: while the dominant focus in studies of literature and fashion has been on representations of clothing and dress within literary texts, or on the discourses that occur around these texts—what about the author? How did he dress? What where her shopping practices and predilections? What were his alliances with modishness, stylishness, fashion? Essays in this collection examine men and women of fashion, authors of the eighteenth century (Alexander Pope, Hesther Thrale), the Romantic period (Mary Robinson, Lord Byron), the Victorian period (William Thackeray, Charlotte Bronte, Wilkie Collins, Margaret Oliphant), the twentieth century (Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, Trudy Kanter), and the postmodern and digital era (Angela Carter and Martin Margiela), converging ultimately upon a fundamental question: what happens to our notions of timeless literature when authorship itself is implicated in the transient and the temporary, the cycles and materials of fashion?
