Men in Wonderland: The Lost Girlhood of the Victorian Gentleman. by Catherine Robson

Catherine Robson offers an argument that is audacious, compelling, and new. The cult of the girl is a topic that will attract attention. By exploring girl worship among various canonical authors across a long period, this book will appeal to a broad audience. Men in Wonderland is a pleasure to read.--Pamela K. Gilbert, University of Florida<P>In this lively and provocative study, Catherine Robson deftly explores the work of masculine anxiety in shaping Victorian ideals of girlhood. With a wide range of incisive analysis, and a good deal of wry yet sympathetic wit, Men in Wonderland discovers a wealth of surprises in what might have seemed a familiar world. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of gender and childhood in the nineteenth century.--James Eli Adams, Cornell University
