Victorian "Freaks"
A Collection of Essays

The Nineteenth-Century is noted for its strict notions of the normative and its
anxieties about difference. "Freaks" and various kinds of freak shows
proliferated in this climate. Not only is freakishness associated with what
seems odd or fanciful, but also with a "turn of the mind," rebellion, or
critique. This collection aims to explore various disruptions caused by or
creating "freakishness" as it relates to social issues and social change.
