Hélène Aubriet

Hélène Aubriet teaches English as a PRCE at Poitiers University Institute of Technology. She is interested in the treatment of Arthurian literature in Victorian and Edwardian visual arts. Her research focuses on illustrations of Alfred Tennyson’s and William Morris’s poetry. Her PhD thesis (defended in 2016) is entitled “‘The True and the False’: From picturing the truth to picturing dream worlds in Edwardian illustrated editions of Alfred Tennyson’s Idylls of the King (1859)”. Her work addresses the question of representing moral values and notions. It also surveys the Pre-Raphaelite legacy at the turn of the 20th century in the field of applied arts.
