Our vampires, ourselves by Nina Auerbach( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sometimes bewitchingly erotic, sometimes repellent, sometimes ravenous, vampires embody their societies' fears and forbidden dreams. In this wry, original book, literary critic and vampire enthusiast Nina Auerbach shows how every age embraces the vampire it needs and, at the same time, gets the vampire it deserves."--Jacket
Ellen Terry, player in her time by Nina Auerbach( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

She was one of the most beloved figures of her time and, after Queen Victoria, the highest-paid working woman in the realm. A boyish child actress in the 1850s, she subdued her energy until her eerie beauty made her the center of an aesthetic cult in the 1870s and '80s. In the 1890s she radiated a queenly benevolence as reigning female star of Henry Irving's Lyceum Theatre; later, as the new century veered out of control, she would exude maternal comfort to men like J.M. Barrie and George Bernard Shaw, while becoming an austere oracle to a circle of militant new women led by her daughter, Edy Craig. She held a place in the pantheon of great actresses alongside Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse. She was Ellen Terry, consummate player

The aristocratic vampire that haunts the Transylvanian countryside has captivated readers' imaginations since it was first published in 1897. Hindle asserts that Dracula depicts an embattled man's struggle to recover his "deepest sense of himself as a man", making it the "ultimate terror myth."

Forbidden journeys : fairy tales and fantasies by Victorian women writers( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 706 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

Victorian Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What did the Victorians think of Shakespeare? The twelve essays gathered here offer some answers, through close examination of works by leading nineteenth-century novelists, poets and critics including Dickens, Trollope, Eliot, Tennyson, Browning and Ruskin. Shakespeare provided the Victorians with ways of thinking about the authority of the past, about the emergence of a new mass culture, about the relations between artistic and industrial production, about the nature of creativity, about racial and sexual difference, and about individual and national identity
