"This book also uncovers links between the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the avant-garde Aesthetic movement of the 1870s, by focusing on shared themes ranging from the 'fallen woman' to the romance of the Arthurian legends. In doing so, it unravels an alternative history of the Pre-Raphaelites - one that encourages us to open our eyes to the unexpected enthusiasms of the men and women who challenged the Victorian establishment."--BOOK JACKET.
