The Victorian supernatural( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection brings together essays by scholars from literature, history of art and history of science which explore the diversity of Victorian fascination with the supernatural: ghosts and fairies, table-rappings and telepathic encounters, occult religions and the idea of reincarnation, visions of the other world and a reality beyond the everyday. These essays demonstrate that the supernatural was not simply a reaction to the "post-Darwinian loss of faith", but was embedded in virtually every aspect of Victorian culture
Olive Schreiner and the progress of feminism : evolution, gender, empire by Carolyn Burdett( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"South African-born Olive Schreiner became famous in 1880s England following the publication of her novel The Story of an African Farm. She gained a reputation as the first of the 'New Women' who were to demand that women be allowed a full part in the progress which seemed to characterize modern European nations. But however warmly the metropolitan culture embraced Schreiner's trenchant analyses of women's oppression, she remained a distinctively colonial writer. During the last decade of the nineteenth century, Schreiner was one of the most outspoken critics of the British empire in South Africa, supporting the Boers in the 1899-1902 war, and then the African cause as it became clear that South African Union had resulted in the assertion of white supremacy. Through detailed readings of her fictional and non-fictional work, Olive Schreiner and the Progress of Feminism examines how Schreiner's opposition to imperialism in South Africa shaped her response to European modernity and women's relation to 'progress'."--Jacket
