A Modern Sensation
This introductory chapter starts by briefly considering how modernity felt to Victorians and how they described the sensation of modern life. It then sets out the purpose of this book, which is to provide a compelling account of how various Victorian misfits, underdogs, and iconoclasts—antiestablishment literary figures with a penchant for questioning the middle-class worldview—grappled with, transformed, or in some cases made reluctant peace with the world in play. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
