- Reconstructing The Victorian House: Philip Child's Hermeneutic
- "This present essay will be avowedly 'revisionary,' and if not 'rehabilitative' it will be 'reconstructionist' in the sense I find demanded by The Victorian House. I wish to counter the prevailing tendency to settle upon the dimensions of melancholy and suffering that are most certainly to be found in the poem (as in the novels). In so doing, I shall find those darker dimensions expressed primarily through the semi-transparent persona that Child reluctantly assumes to narrate the poem in the first person. I shall find them modified and balanced, and potentially overcome, by other voices and factors that fill out a far from melancholy pattern when the narration is complete. I shall concern myself with a network of symbolic language that offers interconnections so intricate and shifting that the shape the poem takes must be for each reader new, and far from final."
