Summary
This volume traces the deployment of dress in key fictional texts of the 18th & 19th centuries, from Defoe's 'Roxana' to Edith Wharton's 'House of Mirth'. It covers a range of topics from the growth of the middle classes & association of luxury with vice, to reasons why wedding dresses rarely symbolise happiness
