Winner of the 1957 Christian Gauss Award given by Phi Beta Kappa

"The most thorough and comprehensive study of its subject that has yet been written. . . . Here is a full and intelligent analysis of the different facets of that many-sided thing, the Victorian mind and soul. An important part of this analysis is the relating of one attitude and tendency to another, so that, although some are contradictory, the agreements and the discords and their causes are made intelligible. The analysis is supported everywhere by rich and often fresh documentation. Mr. Houghton writes with vigor and clarity. The book seems to me a large and solid contribution to the understanding of Victorian civilization and Victorian literature."--Douglas Bush
