The Oxford guide to British women writers by Joanne Shattock( Book )

27 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The growing interest today in women's writing has led to a re-evaluation of British literary history, both emphasizing the vitality of well-known women writers and bringing to light numerous hitherto forgotten figures. Assuming no previous knowledge on the part of readers, The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers provides in a single volume an accessible and stimulating beginner's guide to the widest range of British women's writing, from the earliest times to the present." "Entries on some 400 writers from Aphra Behn to Jeanette Winterson, Mary Wollstonecraft to Barbara Cartland, offer a brief outline of each woman's life, her major publications, contemporary critical reception, and an assessment of her work. Suggestions for further reading are also given. The range of writers discussed includes novelists, poets, and playwrights, together with mystics, diarists, travel writers, scientists, and translators. The author has also carefully selected a number of non-British writers such as Sylvia Plath who have had an important influence on the British literary scene. In addition, the Guide features subject entries and provides an extensive general bibliography on women's writing." "Concise, informative, and well-organized, The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers will be an invaluable introduction for all readers and students of women's writing."--Jacket
Women and literature in Britain, 1800-1900 by Joanne Shattock( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These new essays by leading scholars explore nineteenth-century women's writing across a spectrum of genres. The book's focus is on women's role in and access to literary culture in the broadest sense, as consumers and interpreters as well as practitioners of that culture. Individual chapters consider women as journalists, editors, translators, scholars, actresses, playwrights, autobiographers, biographers, writers for children and religious writers as well as novelists and poets. A unique chronology offers a woman-centered perspective on literary and historical events and there is a guide to further reading."--Jacket

The Cambridge companion to English literature, 1830-1914 by Joanne Shattock( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nineteenth century witnessed unprecedented expansion in the reading public and an explosive growth in the number of books and newspapers produced to meet its demands. These specially commissioned essays examine not only the full range and variety of texts that entertained and informed the Victorians, but also the boundaries of Victorian literature: the links and overlap with Romanticism in the 1830s, and the roots of modernism in the years leading up to the First World War. The Companion demonstrates how science, medicine and theology influenced creative writing and emphasizes the importance of the visual in painting, book illustration and in technological innovations from the kaleidoscope to the cinema. Essays also chart the complex and fruitful interchanges with writers in America, Europe and the Empire, highlighting the geographical expansion of literature in English. This Companion brings together the most important aspects of this prolific and popular period of English literature."--Jacket

Politics and reviewers : the Edinburgh and the Quarterly in the early Victorian age by Joanne Shattock( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Quarterly reviewing represented the pinnacle of journalistic activity in the early Victorian period. Under the guise of book review, leading writers presented and debated their views on all important subjects from literature, history and fine arts to science, economics and political affairs. The two main quarterlies were aligned with the two major political parties: the Edinburgh Review with the Whigs and the Quarterly Review with the Tories. This book explores the day to day operations of the Reviews, the extended rivalry between them, the recruiting of reviewers, and the writing of review articles. Through extensive use of archival sources, this book documents the important influence of these quarterlies on their times

The selected works of Margaret Oliphant by Oliphant( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Margaret Oliphant Wilson Oliphant (1828-97) had a wide-ranging and prolific literary career that spanned almost fifty years. She wrote some 98 novels, over fifty short stories, twenty-five works of non-fiction, including biographies and historic guides to European cities, and more than three hundred periodical articles. As the self-styled 'general utility woman' for Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine, often contributing both fiction and literary reviews to the same issue, she became a major critical voice for her generation. Her influence, usually cast on the side of 'the common reader', was such that it provoked fellow novelists such as Anthony Trollope, Henry James and Thomas Hardy to savage fictional portraits by way of retaliation

Fellow Romantics : male and female British writers, 1790-1835 by Beth Lau( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with the premise that men and women of the Romantic period were lively interlocutors who participated in many of the same literary traditions and experiments, Fellow Romantics offers an inspired counterpoint to studies of Romantic-era women writers that stresses their differences from their male contemporaries. As they advance the work of scholars who have questioned binary approaches to studying male and female writers, the contributors variously link, among others, Charlotte Smith and William Wordsworth, Mary Robinson and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Felicia Hemans and Percy Bysshe Shelley, Jane Austen and the male Romantic poets. These pairings invite us to see anew the work of both male and female writers by drawing our attention to frequently neglected aspects of each writer's art. Here we see writers of both sexes interacting in their shared historical moment, while the contributors reorient our attention toward common points of engagement between male and female authors. What is gained is a more textured understanding of the period that will serve as a model for future studies."--Jacket
The neglected Shelley by Alan M Weinberg( )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New editions and facsimiles of Percy Bysshe Shelley's works are changing the landscape of Shelley studies by making complete compositions and fragments that have received only limited critical attention readily available to scholars. Building on the work begun in Weinberg and Webb's 2009 volume, "The Unfamiliar Shelley", "The Neglected Shelley" sheds light on the breadth and depth of Shelley's oeuvre, including the poet's earliest work, written when he was not yet twenty and was experimenting with gothic romances, and other striking forms of literary expression, such as two collections of provocative verse
Gilbert and Sullivan : class and the Savoy tradition, 1875-1896 by Regina B Oost( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Regina B. Oost examines advertisements, promotional materials, and programs, as well as letters, diaries, and account books, to reconstruct the ways in which Richard D'Oyly Carte, W.S. Gilbert, and Arthur Sullivan attracted and shaped the expectations of theatergoers. Her findings place the Savoy operas in the context of other West End productions, considering similarities between Carte's promotional methods and those of managers Henry Irving, John Hollingshead, and Marie and Squire Bancroft. While all of these managers astutely understood patronage of a middle-class audience to be key to their success, the Savoy collaborators made strategic use of circumstances unique to their situation to distinguish Gilbert and Sullivan operas from contemporary theatrical fare. From Trial by Jury (1875) through The Grand Duke (1896), the Savoy operas celebrated the commodity culture beloved of the urban middle classes, validated a moral code that secured the social privileges audience members cherished, and ultimately provided a new model of British national identity that replaced the agrarian ideal espoused by earlier generations."--Jacket
The military memoir and romantic literary culture, 1780-1835 by Neil Ramsey( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the memoirs and autobiographies of British soldiers during the Romantic period, Neil Ramsey explores the effect of these as cultural forms mediating warfare to the reading public during and immediately after the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. Forming a distinct and commercially successful genre that in turn inspired the military and nautical novels that flourished in the 1830s, military memoirs profoundly shaped nineteenth-century British culture's understanding of war as Romantic adventure, establishing images of the nation's middle-class soldier heroes that would be of enduring significance through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries
