Description - The Shock of the Real by G. Wood
Offers a tour of Romantic visual culture, from the West End stage to the tourist-filled Scottish Highlands, from the panoramas of Leicester Square to the photography studios of Second Empire Paris. But in presenting the relation between word and image as a form of culture war, the author also proposes an alternative account.
