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

26 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 952 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

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

19 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 419 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

Journalism and the periodical press in nineteenth-century Britain by Joanne Shattock( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Newly commissioned essays by leading scholars offer a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the diversity, range and impact of the newspaper and periodical press in nineteenth-century Britain. Essays range from studies of periodical formats in the nineteenth century - reviews, magazines and newspapers - to accounts of individual journalists, many of them eminent writers of the day. The uneasy relationship between the new 'profession' of journalism and the evolving profession of authorship is investigated, as is the impact of technological innovations, such as the telegraph, the typewriter and new processes of illustration. Contributors go on to consider the transnational and global dimensions of the British press and its impact in the rest of the world. As digitisation of historical media opens up new avenues of research, the collection reveals the centrality of the press to our understanding of the nineteenth century"--

Gender at work in Victorian culture : literature, art and masculinity by Martin A Danahay( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though many romanticized working-class labor, the fissured representation of the masculine body occasioned by the distinction between manual labor and 'brain work' made it impossible for them to overcome the Victorian class hierarchy of labor. Through cultural studies analyses of the novels of Dickens and Gissing; the nonfiction prose of Carlyle, Ruskin and Morris; the poetry of Thomas Hood; paintings by Richard Redgrave, William Bell Scott, and Ford Madox Brown; and contemporary photographs, including many from the Munby Collection, Danahay examines the ideological contradictions in Victorian representations of men at work. His book will be a valuable resource for scholars and students of English literature, history, and gender studies."--Jacket
City of health, fields of disease : revolutions in the poetry, medicine, and philosophy of Romanticism by Martin Wallen( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Romantic Era witnessed a series of conflicts concerning definitions of health and disease. In this book, Martin Wallen discusses those conflicts and the cultural values that drove them. The six chapters progress from the mainstream rejuvenation of the Socratic values by Wordsworth and Coleridge to the radical alternatives offered by the Scottish theorist, John Brown, and the speculative German philosopher, F.W.J. Schelling."
Daniel O'Connell, the British press, and the Irish famine : killing remarks by Leslie Williams( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book explores the reportage of events and people in Ireland, focusing first on Daniel O'Connell, and then on debates about the seriousness of the Famine. Drawing upon such journals as The Times, The Observer, the Morning Chronicle, The Scotsman, the Manchester Guardian, the Illustrated London News, and Punch, Williams suggests how this reportage may have effected Britain's response to Ireland's tragedy."--Jacket
Thomas Hardy and the survivals of time by Andrew D Radford( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andrew Radford here situates Hardy's fiction and poetry in a context of the new sciences of humankind that evolved during the Victorian age to accommodate an immense range of literal and figurative 'excavations' then taking place. Combining literary close readings with broad historical analyses, he explores Hardy's artistic response to geological, archaeological and anthropological findings. In particular, he analyses Hardy's lifelong fascination with the doctrine of 'survivals', a term coined by E.B. Tylor in Primitive Culture (1871) to denote customs, beliefs and practices persisting in isolation from their original cultural context. Radford reveals how Hardy's subtle reworking of Tylor's doctrine offers a valuable insight into the inter-penetration of science and literature during this period." "An important aspect of Radford's research focuses on lesser known periodical literature that grew out of a British amateur antiquarian tradition of the nineteenth century. His readings of Hardy's literary notebooks disclose the degree to which Hardy's own considerable scientific knowledge was shaped by the middlebrow periodical press. Thus, Thomas Hardy and the Survivals of Time raises questions not only about the reception of scientific ideas but also the creation of nonspecialist forms of scientific discourse."--Jacket
Culture and science in the nineteenth-century media by Louise Henson( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by literary scholars, historians of science, and cultural historians, the twenty-two original essays in this collection explore the intriguing and multifaceted interrelationships between science and culture through the periodical press in nineteenth-century Britain. Ranging across the spectrum of periodical titles, the six sections comprise: 'Women, Children, and Gender', 'Religious Audiences', 'Naturalizing the Supernatural', 'Contesting New Technologies', 'Professionalization and Journalism', and 'Evolution, Psychology, and Culture'. The essays offer some of the first 'samplings and soundings' from the emergent and richly interdisciplinary field of scholarship on the relations between science and the nineteenth-century media"
Victorian publishing : the economics of book production for a mass market, 1836-1916 by Alexis Weedon( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on research into the book-production records of twelve publishers - including George Bell et Son, Richard Bentley, William Blackwood, Chatto et Windus, Oliver et Boyd, Macmillan, and the book printers William Clowes and TetA Constable - taken at ten-year intervals from 1836 to 1916, this book interprets broad trends in the growth and diversity of book publishing in Victorian Britain. Chapters explore the significance of the export trade to the colonies and the rising importance of towns outside London as centres of publishing; the influence of technological change in increasing the variety and quantity of books; and how the business practice of literary publishing developed to expand the market for British and American authors."--BOOK JACKET

Sherlock's sisters : the British female detective, 1864-1913 by Joseph A Kestner( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sherlock's Sisters: The British Female Detective, 1864-1913 examines the fictional female detective in Victorian and Edwardian literature. This character, originating in the 1860s, configures a new representation of women in narratives of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This analysis explores female empowerment through professional unofficial or official detection, especially as this surveillance illuminates legal, moral, gendered, institutional, criminal, punitive, judicial, political, and familial practices." "Sherlock's Sisters enlarges the perception of emerging female empowerment during the nineteenth century, filling an important gap in the fields of Gender Studies, Law/Literature and Popular Culture."--Jacket
Dickens and empire : discourses of class, race and colonialism in the works of Charles Dickens by Grace Moore( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Dickens' views on class and race have, in the past, been misread. This book does not exonerate him from charges of racism, but examines his changing imaginative engagement with the empire and his complex attitude toward the racial other at key stages of personal, national and global significance
