Making use of masculinity theories, Kestner sheds light on Victorian and Edwardian adventure fiction. He explores works published in the 1880s involving initiation and rites of passage, colonial contexts, and sexual encounters. In doing so he provides a picture of the crisis of masculinity that pervased adventure texts.
