Gothic feminism : the professionalization of gender from Charlotte Smith to the Brontës by Diane Long Hoeveler( )

18 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As British women writers in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries sought to define how they experienced their era's social and economic upheaval, they helped popularize a new style of bourgeois female sensibility. Building on her earlier work in Romantic Androgyny, Diane Long Hoeveler now examines the Gothic novels of Charlotte Smith, Ann Radcliffe, Jane Austen, Charlotte Dacre Byrne, Mary Shelley, and the Bront?s to show how these writers helped define femininity for women of the British middle class. Hoeveler argues that a female-created literary ideology, now known as "victim feminism," arose as the Gothic novel helped create a new social role of professional victim for women adjusting to the new bourgeois order. These novels were thinly disguised efforts at propagandizing a new form of conduct for women, teaching that "professional femininity"--A cultivated pose of wise passiveness and controlled emotions-best prepared them for social survival. She examines how representations of both men and women in these novels moved from the purely psychosexual into social and political representations, and how these writers constructed a series of ideologies that would allow their female characters-and readers-fictitious mastery over an oppressive social and political system. Gothic Feminism takes a neo-feminist approach to these women's writings, treating them not as sacred texts but as thesis-driven works that attempted to instruct women in a series of strategic poses. It offers both a new understanding of the genre and a wholly new interpretation of feminism as a literary ideology
Women of color : defining the issues, hearing the voices( )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the late 1960s, women's studies scholars worked to introduce courses on the history, literature, and philosophies of women. While these initial efforts were rather general, women's studies programs have started to give increasing amounts of attention to the special concerns of women of color. The topic itself is politically charged, and there is growing awareness that the issues facing women of color are diverse and complex. Expert contributors offer chapters on the major concerns facing women of color in the modern world, particularly in the United States and Latin America.''Each chapter treats one or more groups of women who have been underrepresented in women's studies scholarship or have had their experiences misinterpreted, including African Americans, Latina Americans, Asian Americans, and Native Americans. Women of Color includes chapters on theories related to race, gender, and identity. One section provides discussions of literature by women of color, including works by such authors as Toni Morrison and Maxine Hong Kingston. The book also focuses on the place of women of color in higher education, including chapters on women of color and the women's studies curriculum, and the role of librarians in shaping women's studies programs

Charlotte Brontë by Diane Long Hoeveler( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Charlotte Bronte, Diane Long Hoeveler and Lisa Jadwin offer a reasoned critical biography of the writer and a comprehensive survey of all Bronte's works, including newly transcribed juvenilia. Organizing their material chronologically, the authors present an informed perspective on the complex history of Bronte criticism and biography, with an emphasis on the most recent feminist, psychoanalytic, and new historicist viewpoints."--BOOK JACKET. "An introductory chapter traces the substantial body of biographical works devoted to Charlotte Bronte, placing these in the context of their times and explicating the factors influencing biographers, such as prevailing social attitudes toward women and biographers' access to reliable primary sources. Subsequent chapters examine the juvenilia, the four novels, and the poetry and letters, interspersing each discussion with useful biographical details and valuable critical observations. Unlike other such studies, the volume combines rather than seperates biographical and critical components, and emphasizes the richness and complexity of Bronte's works rather than imposing a single way of approaching them."--BOOK JACKET. "Thoroughly up to date and written with grace and elan, Charlotte Bronte provides an insightful resource for courses in Victorian literature, women's writing, and English literature; general readers, too, will find it appealing."--Jacket
Approaches to teaching Brontë's Jane Eyre by Diane Long Hoeveler( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taught more frequently than any of Charlotte Brontë's other novels, Jane Eyre presents distinct problems for the contemporary undergraduate instructor, one being the work's sheer length. Almost all the instructors who responded to a survey conducted for this volume spent two to three weeks teaching the novel in their courses and seminars; their students discovered, in the words of the volume coeditor Diane Long Hoeveler, "as much about themselves, their own memories of childhood, their own struggles for autonomy, as they [did] about the cultural, social, economic, religious, and literary backgrounds that constitute the milieu of the novel." Like other books in the MLA's Approaches to Teaching World Literature series, this one is divided into two parts. The first part, "Materials," discusses editions, relevant background and critical studies, biographies, bibliographies, and other aids to teaching. In the second part, "Approaches," twenty contributors discuss Brontë's background and biography; the influence of Christianity, fairy tales, and Gothic fiction on her work; the themes of the novel and its social and political implications; its film and stage adaptations; relevant artworks (paintings, etchings, and portraits); and various theoretical approaches to teaching the book
Approaches to teaching Gothic fiction : the British and American traditions( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent decades have seen a revival of scholarly interest in Gothic fiction. Critics are attracted to the genre’s exploration of irrationality, to its dark representation of the bourgeois family and of the psychological effects of social conflict. Because of this critical interest and because of the enduring popularity of the genre from the eighteenth century to the present, the Gothic has become increasingly visible on college syllabi. This volume, like others in the MLA’s Approaches to Teaching World Literature series, is divided into two parts. The first part, “Materials,” gives information on available editions, anthologies, reference works, background sources, critical studies, films, and Web sites of value in teaching Gothic fiction. The second part, “Approaches,” contains twenty-eight essays that define the genre; examine its connections to history, philosophy, feminism, social criticism; show its different forms in England, Ireland, the United States; and probe its themes—including such motifs as ghosts, castles, entrapped heroines, and animated corpses. Among the many authors discussed are Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, Ann Radcliffe, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Wilkie Collins, Oscar Wilde, Robert Louis Stevenson, Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Toni Morrison."--Publisher's description

Gothic riffs : secularizing the uncanny in the European imaginary, 1780-1820 by Diane Long Hoeveler( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gothic Riffs: Secularizing the Uncanny in the European Imaginary, 1780-1820 by Diane Long Hoeveler provides the first comprehensive study of what are called "collateral gothic" genres--operas, ballads, chapbooks, dramas, and melodramas--that emerged out of the gothic novel tradition founded by Horace Walpole, Matthew Lewis, and Ann Radcliffe. The role of religion and its more popular manifestations, superstition and magic, in the daily lives of Western Europeans were effectively undercut by the forces of secularization that were gaining momentum on every front, particularly by 1800. It is clear, however, that the lower class and the emerging bourgeoisie were loath to discard their traditional beliefs. We can see their search for a sense of transcendent order and spiritual meaning in the continuing popularity of gothic performances that demonstrate that there was more than a residue of a religious calendar still operating in the public performative realm. Because this bourgeois culture could not turn away from God, it chose to be haunted, in its literature and drama, by God's uncanny avatars: priests, corrupt monks, incestuous fathers and uncles. The gothic aesthetic emerged during this period as an ideologically contradictory and complex discourse system; a secularizing of the uncanny; a way of alternately valorizing and at the same time slandering the realms of the supernatural, the sacred, the maternal, and the primitive"--Jacket
