    About Jim Cheshire

    Jim’s research examines the literary and visual culture of the nineteenth century and thematically is centred on Victorian medievalism. He has recently been working on the relationship between the literary and material culture surrounding the career of Alfred Tennyson. Several related publications discuss the importance of the physical form and visual appearance of Tennyson’s poetry and how this might have influenced the way that his poetry was read. He is currently writing a monograph about Edward Moxon (Tennyson’s publisher) and his impact on Victorian poetry.

    He works closely with colleagues in the Conservation subject area on object analysis and interpretation and acts as Historical Consultant to Crick Smith Conservation.
