The parlor was the center of the Victorian home and, as Thad Logan shows, the place where contemporary conflicts about domesticity and gender relations were frequently played out. In The Victorian Parlour: A Cultural Study, Logan uses an interdisciplinary approach that combines the perspectives of art history, social history, and literary theory to describe and analyze the parlor as a highly significant cultural space. The book concludes with a discussion of how representations of the parlor in literature and art reveal the pleasures and anxieties associated with Victorian domestic life.
