The Disappearance of God FIVE NINETEENTH-CENTURY WRITERS Synopsis

In this acclaimed study, J. Hillis Miller focuses on five Victorian authors--Matthew Arnold, Charlotte Bronte, Robert Browning, Thomas DeQuincey, and Gerard Manley Hopkins--to present their various responses to crises of faith in the face of Darwinism, the rise of science, urbanization and other factors that seemed to distance them from God.
