Daphne du Maurier, haunted heiress by Nina Auerbach ( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Her own phrase for her secret self, "the boy in the box," hints at her sexual ambivalence and her alienation from the prescribed roles for women of her day."--BOOK JACKET. "This is a du Maurier whose sharp-edged fiction, with its brutal and often perverse family relationships, has been softened in such movies as Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, The Birds, and Don't Look Now, all based on her work."--BOOK JACKET
Forbidden journeys : fairy tales and fantasies by Victorian women writers ( Book )
7 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 700 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 by Gail Marshall ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 3 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 Scott, Dickens, Collins, Trollope, Eliot, James, Tennyson, Browning, Ruskin, the scholar-critic Mary Cowden Clarke and the actor George Vandenhoff. Shakespeare's characters, stories and words turn out to be integral to such public events as the Great Exhibition of 1851, a fund-raising show at the Royal Albert Hall in 1884, and the death of the Poet Laureate in 1892. The conclusion emerging from this volume is that Shakespeare was indispensable to the Victorians. He provided them 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 memory and mourning, about racial and sexual difference, and about individual and national identity. Published in association with the Institute of English Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London
