Although a great deal has been written on the individual Pre-Raphaelites and on the movement as a whole, there has been no attempt to synthesize in a single work the various streams of activity which merged to produce one of the most interesting of modern artistic developments. Examining the movement in the perspective of English art and literature of the nineteenth century, William Fredeman presents the only authoritative account of both the literary and artistic aspects, and the first critical reference guide to the whole subject of Pre-Raphaelitism.
