History, Materiality and Type in Tennyson's “In Memoriam” (2013)


Description “This chapter re-examines Tennyson's references to the type-concept to show that, when read in conflicting numismatic, taxonomic and erotic contexts that the term brings with it, they are far more heterogeneous and unsettling than has yet been seen.”
