This study explores the passion with which Victorian male writers and artists gave meaning to the myth of Perseus and Andromeda and its medieval analogue, the legend of St George and the dragon. It demonstrates how men used the myth to exert their own gender on Victorian culture.
Interpretation and gender; the poetics of rescue, the politics of bondage; manly allegories; typologies of defloration; celestial emblems; the gender economy.
