Ventures into childland : Victorians, fairy tales, and femininity by U. C Knoepflmacher( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Behind the innocent face of Victorian fairy tales such as Through the Looking Glass or Mopsa the Fairy lurks the spectre of an intense nineteenth-century debate about the very nature - and ownership - of childhood. In the engagingly written Ventures into Childland, U.C. Knoepflmacher illuminates this debate. Offering brilliant rereadings of classics from the "Golden Age of Children's Literature" as well as literature commonly considered "grown-up," Knoepflmacher probes deeply into the relations between adults and children, adults and their own childhood selves, and between the lives of beloved Victorian authors and their "children's tales.""--Jacket
Forbidden journeys : fairy tales and fantasies by Victorian women writers by Nina Auerbach( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many ways themselves restricted to the status of children, Victorian women were less inclined than the men of their time to idealize childhood--and the children's stories they wrote often tended to be darker and wilder than those of their male counter-parts. As the eleven brilliant stories collected here demonstrate, these fairy tales by Victorian women constitute a distinct literary tradition, one startlingly subversive of the society that fostered it. Collected for the first time in one volume, these fairy tales and fantasies are fascinating for more than their social and historical implications: They are extraordinary stories, full of strange delights for readers of any age. From Anne Thackeray Ritchie's adaptations of "The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood" and "Beauty and the Beast," and Jean Ingelow's fantastic novel Mopsa the Fairy to Christina Rossetti's unsettling antifantasies in Speaking Likenesses, these are breathtaking acts of imaginative freedom, by turns amusing, charming, and disturbing. In collecting these works, two of our most distinguished Victorian scholars rescue authors such as Ritchie, Ingelow, Juliana Horatia Ewing, and Mary Louisa Molesworth from undeserved obscurity. At the same time, Auerbach and Knoepflmacher bring to the fore the power of the shorter prose fantasies of more familiar writers like Rossetti, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and E. Nesbit. Five introductory essays by Auerbach and Knoepflmacher place these stories within the fairy-tale tradition and the context of Victorian juvenile and adult fiction. Defining the tales in relation to the Victorian preoccupation with mythmaking, they identify the astringent social satire and literary mockery present in each work. As entertaining as it is enlightening, this anthology ushers readers into a fantasy world of wit, perversity, and wonder
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights by U. C Knoepflmacher( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complete fairy tales by George MacDonald( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George MacDonald occupied a major position in the intellectual life of his Victorian contemporaries. The Complete Fairy Tales brings together all eleven of his shorter fairy stories as well as his essay "The Fantastic Imagination." The subjects are those of traditional fantasy: fairies good and wicked, and children journeying into unsettling dreamworlds or undertaking life-risking labors. But though they allude to familiar tales such as "Sleeping Beauty" and "Jack the Giant-Killer," MacDonald's stories are profoundly experimental and subversive. By questioning the concept that a childhood associated with purity, innocence, and fairy-tale "wonder" ought to be segregated from adult skepticism and disbelief, they invite adult readers to adopt the same elasticity and open-mindedness that come so naturally to a child. Enlisting paradox, play, and nonsense much like Lewis Carroll's Alice books, these fictions challenge us to question and rethink our assumptions, and offer an elusive yet meaningful alternative order to the dubious certitudes of everyday life."--Jacket

Victorians reading the Romantics : essays by U.C. Knoepflmacher by U. C Knoepflmacher( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Victorians Reading the Romantics: Essays by U. C. Knoepflmacher', edited by Linda M. Shires, offers a compelling new perspective on the long and influential publishing career and thought of Knoepflmacher, a leading critic of the novel and Victorian poetry. This volume draws together essays on nineteenth-century literature written between 1963 and 2012. An introductory essay and new scaffolding emphasize the interrelations among the essays, which together form a consistent approach to literary criticism. 0Knoepflmacher?s vision of texts and readers stresses the emotional knowledge afforded by reading, writing about, and teaching literary texts. Each chapter links Romantic texts to those of later writers. Shelley and Keats try to revise Wordsworth, but they are themselves recast by Browning and Hardy. Similarly, George Eliot and Virginia Woolf?s reliance on Romantic tropes are fruitfully examined. Above all, however, these chapters stress the impact of Wordsworth on his many contemporaries and successors. Knoepflmacher probes into their texts to find, as Wordsworth did, a momentary fusion of opposites. He posits a reader who is flexible?able to move in multiple directions by paying attention to spatial, verbal, and imagistic coordinates, across and down a page. Given the attention paid to the translation of affect into thought, this collection will contribute to Victorian studies as well as enhance our understanding of the affective dynamics of nineteenth-century literature
