The Victorian diary : authorship and emotional labour by Anne-Marie Millim( )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents Victorian-era diaries as not simply private sources of biographical information but rather places a diary at the intersection of the public and private spheres. Using many examples such as Elizabeth Rigby Eastlake, Henry Crabb Robinson, George Eliot, George Gissing, John Ruskin, Edith Simcox, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, the author shows that many writers exploited the diary's self-reflexive structure in order to enhance their creativity and establish themselves as authors, knowing it was very possible for the diaries to published posthumously
Victorian Celebrity Culture and Tennyson's Circle by Charlotte Boyce( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By 1850, Alfred Tennyson was not merely the Poet Laureate, a commercially successful and critically acclaimed author, he was one of Britain's leading celebrities. Offering new analysis of the workings of Victorian celebrity, this volume explores the ever-expanding compass of Tennyson's fame and the efforts of the poet and others to control this phenomenon. It shows that Tennyson's retreat from mainland publicity to the secluded Isle of Wight and his limiting of his social circle to that of family and like-minded guests, only increased the demand of fans and tourists for access to the poet. Through an analysis of poetry, paintings, photography, illustrations, memoirs, reminiscences, diaries, letters, and newspaper and periodical articles, this book shows that Tennyson's fashioning of his reluctant celebrity affected not only his own life and works, but also had an effect on his celebrity and non-celebrity friends, and on the (self- )construction of his fans."--

Writing in the age of William IV( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores the literary, cultural, social and political climate in Britain during the reign of William IV (1830-37). Rarely discussed by scholars searching to define the 'Romantic' period, and overshadowed by Queen Victoria, William IV's reign signifies an important moment within the long nineteenth century, one whose literary output is marked by experimentation and generic instability. Rather than simply blurring the boundaries between the Romantic and Victorian periods, this diverse collection of essays demonstrates how the spirit of reform, creative experimentation, and an increasingly politically active middle-class readership produced a peculiar literary and material culture of its own. Responding to a wide range of print culture, including periodicals, albums, graphic satires, novels, poetry, travel writing and guidebooks, by canonical and non-canonical authors, such as Catherine Gore, James Hogg, John Ruskin, Mariana Starke, Thomas Hosmer Shepherd and Thomas Pringle, the essays in this volume map a complex network of conversation, personal and national identities, radical and conservative ideologies, and contested domestic and public spaces, both in Britain and abroad. By addressing various aspects of this remarkable period's material culture and aesthetic innovations, the essays in this collection complicate our contemporary understanding of the long nineteenth century in Britain and open up new spaces for discussion
Batty Weber : Werk und Wirkung( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Sammelband wird der Zeitzeuge, Beobachter, Intellektuelle und Schriftsteller Batty Weber vorgestellt. Bekannt wurde er vor allem als Historiker des Alltags, der in seinen zwischen 1913 und 1940 in der Luxemburger Zeitung erschienenen Feuilletons mit dem schönen Titel Abreißkalender die Luxemburger Gesellschaft, Politik und Kultur in mehr als 7000 Texten beschrieb und kommentierte. Darüber hinaus verfasste Batty Weber auch literarische Werke: Erzählungen, Novellen, Romane und Theaterstücke. Die Beiträge in diesem Sammelband verdeutlichen, wie Batty Weber zu einem Begriff und zu einer nationalen Identifikationsfigur werden konnte. Erstmals wird das journalistische und literarische Werk einer der bedeutendsten Intellektuellen der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts in Luxemburg vorgestellt. Batty Weber, Integrationsfigur und Autorität für zahlreiche zeitgenössische Autoren, hat ein vielfältiges und reiches Erbe hinterlassen. Nunmehr wird ein kritischer Blick auf den "Abreißkalendermann", den Journalisten und Autor von Erzählungen, Novellen, Roman und Theaterstücken geworfen; es werden überraschende Aspekte seines Werkes erläutert und Dokumente aus seinem Nachlass abgedruckt

Preaching silence : the disciplined self in the Victorian diary by Anne-Marie Millim( )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis examines the representations of the self as a cultural agent, both reacting to and actively shaping codes of social and artistic respectability, as displayed in the diaries of the canonical Victorian writers Lady Elizabeth Eastlake, Henry Crabb Robinson, George Eliot, George Gissing, John Ruskin and Gerard Manley Hopkins. It analyses the impact of wider ideological and social imperatives on the diarists? subjective experience and reads their tendency to silence the self as a symptom of the cultural pressure to merge their private and public persona. These diaries represented a forum in which the diarists perpetually negotiated their own value within the Victorian ideology of productivity and thus not only reflect their inner world but also the cultural climate of the nineteenth century. Chapter One traces the selected diarists? reluctance to reveal private information, as well as their tendency to foreground professional productivity, to the social pressure to efface emotions relating to the self and to only cultivate those that nurtured the community. It identifies the similarities between the compulsive self-discipline advocated in the psychological discourse of the period, particularly Alexander Bain?s The Emotions and the Will (1859), and the willingness to both live up to and actively shape the cultural codes of respectability that Elizabeth Eastlake and Henry Crabb Robinson display in their diaries. Chapter Two compares and contrasts the desire for maximal professional productivity as exhibited in George Eliot?s and George Gissing?s diaries. Both worked obstinately in order to increase their own value: whereas Eliot sought to redeem her?guilt of the privileged,? Gissing desperately needed to increase his financial solvency through literary output. Chapter Three discusses the ways in which John Ruskin?s diary helped him block out unrespectable and painful private experiences through transforming his obsessive desire to appropriate and?feel? visual experience into a professional task. Chapter Four shows that Gerard Manley Hopkins?because he was acutely concerned by his cultural otherness caused by his homosexuality?not only sought refuge and validation by joining the Jesuits, but by narrowing his realm of experience to nature, merged the private and the public self into the figure of the professional, asexual, dutiful and disinterested observer
