(p.1) Introduction
Julia Margaret Cameron's 'fancy subjects'

Jeff Rosen

Manchester University Press

The introduction outlines Cameron’s intellectual framework for assigning literary, mythological, and historical titles to her photographs, explains her working methods as an artist, and discusses the influence of her intellectual and cultural peers. The introduction also examines the role of allegory in Victorian art and explains how painters, graphic artists, and literary figures in Cameron’s circle represented questions of national identity.
