520 8  "The Victorian Baby in Print: Infancy, Infant Care, and 
       Nineteenth-Century Popular Culture explores the 
       representation of babyhood in Victorian Britain. The first
       study to focus exclusively on the baby in nineteenth-
       century literature and culture, this critical analysis 
       discusses the changing roles of an iconic figure. A close 
       look at the wide-ranging portrayal of infants and infant 
       care not only reveals how divergent and often 
       contradictory Victorian attitudes to infancy really were, 
       but also challenges persistent cliches surrounding the 
       literary baby that emerged or were consolidated at the 
       time, and which are largely still with us. Drawing on a 
       variety of texts, including novels by Charles Dickens, 
       Wilkie Collins, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Mrs Henry Wood, 
       and0Charlotte Yonge, as well as parenting magazines of the
       time, childrearing manuals, and advertisements, this study
       analyses how their representations of infancy and infant 
       care utilised and shaped an iconography that has become 
       definitional of the Victorian age itself. The familiar 
       cliches surrounding the Victorian baby have had a lasting 
       impact on the way we see both the Victorians and babies, 
       and a critical reconsideration might also prompt a self-
       critical reconsideration of the still burgeoning market 
       for infant care advice today"--|cProvided by publisher
