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 977 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 416 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 328 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

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.
