Before Einstein: The Fourth Dimension in Fin-de-Siecle Literature and Culture (Anthem Nineteenth-Century)

English | January 2nd, 2017 | ASIN: B01NAO4ORV, ISBN: 1783086238 | 213 Pages | EPUB | 0.85 MB

'Before Einstein' brings together previous scholarship in the field of nineteenth-century literature and science and greatly expands upon it, offering the first book-length study of not only the scientific and cultural context of the spatial fourth dimension, but also the literary value of four-dimensional theory. In addition to providing close critical analysis of Charles Howard Hinton's Scientific Romances (1884-1896), 'Before Einstein' examines the work of H. G. Wells, Henry James and William James through the lens of four-dimensional theory. The primary value of Hinton's work has always been its literary and philosophical content and influence, rather than its scientific authority.

It is certain that significant late nineteenth-century writers and thinkers such as H. G. Wells, William James, Olive Schreiner, Karl Pearson and W. E. B. Du Bois read Hinton. Others, including Henry James, Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford, were familiar with his ideas. Hinton's fourth dimension appealed to scientists, spiritualists and artists, and - particularly at the end of the nineteenth century - the interests of these different groups often overlapped. Truly interdisciplinary in scope, 'Before Einstein' breaks new ground by offering an extensive analysis of four-dimensional theory's place in the shared history of Modernism.
