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."
