" . . . explores the power and the passion with which Victorian male writers and artists gave meaning to the Perseus and Andromeda myth and its medieval analogue, the legend of St. George and the dragon . . . Employing examples from Morris, Browning, Kingsley, Hopkins, Ruskin and Rossetti - along with artists who were their contemporaries - Munich demonstrates that since men rather than women used the Perseus and Andromeda myth for creative purposes, analyzing the Victorian Andromedas illuminates the gendered aspect of Victorian culture."
