Description/Abstract

Robinson reviews the progress of punctuation between 1850 and 1900, showing how - admidst the ongoing (but increasingly sophisticated) contest between the demands of the eye and the ear, of grammar and rhetoric-writing in English reached new expressive heights in the work of Pater, Dickinson, and others.
