About the Author

Helena Michie is Agnes C. Arnold Professor in Humanities and Professor English, Rice University. Robyn Warhol is Arts and Humanities Distinguished Professor of English, The Ohio State University.


"Helena Michie and Robyn Warhol's award-winning Love among the Archives: Writing the Lives of Sir George Scharf, Victorian Bachelor and Simon Goldhill's eagerly awaited study of the Bensons, A Very Queer Family Indeed: Sex, Religion, and the Bensons in Victorian Britain ... are, moreover, pleasures to read: witty, deft, and stylish." --Talia Schaffer, SEL: Studies in English Literature 1500-1990
"Superb. Warhol and Michie's Love Among the Archives is a triumph of a book, that reinvents academic biography and tells a compelling story of the passions and mysteries of Victorian lives and archives. Inventive, witty and knowing, it is both an important reflection on biographical method and a joy to read." --John Bowen, Professor of Nineteenth-Century Literature, University of York
"A brilliant and ambitious experiment in life writing, Love Among the Archives is a delicious, witty, learned performance. Part scholarly detective story, part postmodern metanarrative, part cautionary tale about the temptations, limits, rewards, frustrations, and secret desires involved in doing archival research, it recalls both Byatt's Possession and Symons's The Quest for Corvo." --Professor John O. Jordan, University of California, Santa Cruz
Myopically rich in detail and chronically short on perspective, the diaries, letters, and albums Scharf left to the world offer little by way of telos or even vantage point. One of this book's stunning achievements is to find in all these details, in all this stuff, such memorable, mesmerising patterns.
--Trev Broughton, Victorian Studies / Vol. 59, No. 2. Winter 2017
