    Book synopsis: No other European country or culture had as profound or creative an impact on Victorian Britain as Italy did. In this volume, dedicated to the acclaimed Italian scholar Peter Brand, a team of experts in various fields considers the repercussions of Italian politics and culture on British life from the early nineteenth century to the first decades of the twentieth. The essays cover a wide range of topics: politics, music, literature and the intellectual life, the emergence of Italian as an academic discipline, and the visual arts (including some previously unpublished drawings by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and a rare one by Ruskin). Edited, with an introduction, by Martin McLaughlin, the volume includes chapters by Ian Campbell, Hilary Fraser, T. Gwynfor Griffith, David Kimbell, John Lindon, Denis Mack Smith, Brian Moloney and J. R. Woodhouse, as well as the last article written by Uberto Limentani, formerly Professor of Italian at Cambridge.
