This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the Dickens, Victorian Culture and Italy conference hosted in June 2007 by the University of Genoa, with the support of the University of Milan and of Saint Louis University – Madrid Campus. The collection features research into the perception of Italy and the reception of Italian culture by English writers, and, more marginally, on the reception of Victorian writers in Italy. In their response to Italy, the Victorians inevitably reacted to constructions of Italy they inherited from eighteenth-century pastoral, Gothic fiction, and Romantic poetry.
