"A wide-ranging, interdisciplinary study, Victorian Skin traces a history of the body's surface in the nineteenth century. It offers an expository study of skin in medical, philosophical, and literary writing in the long nineteenth century, and it also explores how literary realism is imbricated in changing beliefs about the signifying and perceptive function of the body's surface"-- Provided by publisher
