About the Author

Amanda Anderson is Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Humanities and English at Brown University and Director of the School of Criticism and Theory at Cornell University. She is the author of The Way We Argue Now: A Study in the Cultures of Theory and Powers of Distance: Cosmopolitanism and the Cultivation of Detachment and coeditor of Disciplinarity at the Fin de Siecle.


"As the subtitle suggests, Anderson's subject is not so much the prostitute in Victorian literature as it is the rhetoric the Victorians used to construct 'fallenness.'"


"Some ideas in Tainted Souls and Painted Faces will be useful in classroom discussions about the pressures exerted on authors by specific literary forms and generalized cultural anxieties."

-- Sally Mitchell * Victorian Studies *
