Visualisation in English Popular Fiction explores the important yet often neglected tradition of illustrated fiction in English. Author Stuart Sillars suggests new analytical approaches for the study of illustrated fiction by offering detailed discussions of a range of representative texts, including Mary Webb’s Gone to Earth and Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca. Sillars provides an in-depth account of the growth of the illustrated text in 19th century England, and discusses also some of the implications of Roland Barthes’ ideas of narratology as they may be applied to this compound form. Following studies in the book explore a range of issues raised by texts of various kinds, such as the visual sense in popular fiction without illustrations, the use of visual narrative in comic strips, and the precise nature of the relocation which occurs when a novel is translated to film. Other issues and genres Sillars explores are: – Victorian ‘narrative’ paintings – Edwardian fictional magazines – illustrated children’s stories
