Charlotte Brontë and Victorian psychology by Sally Shuttleworth ( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 1,285 libraries worldwide
"This ground-breaking study successfully challenges the traditional tendency to regard Charlotte Bronte as having existed in a historical vacuum, by setting her work firmly within the context of Victorian psychological debate. Based on extensive local research, using texts ranging from local newspaper copy to the medical tomes in the Reverend Patrick Bronte's library, Sally Shuttleworth explores the interpenetration of economic, social and psychological discourse in the early and mid nineteenth century, and traces the ways in which Charlotte Bronte's texts operate in relation to this complex, often contradictory, discursive framework. Shuttleworth offers a detailed analysis of Bronte's fiction, informed by a new understanding of Victorian constructions of sexuality and insanity, and the operations of medical and psychological surveillance."--BOOK JACKET.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 387 libraries worldwide
"Jane Eyre is a novel of passion - of anger, defiance, and of overwhelming desire. No novel, before or since, has caught so precisely the complex emotions of childhood, where feelings of powerlessness can mix with rage, and a bitter sense of injustice. From the early scenes, where Jane is locked in the red room, and learns to defy her aunt, through the oppressive regime of Lowood School, we follow the turbulent swell of Jane's feelings. Her psychological struggles with Rochester, her Byronic employer, and St. John Rivers, her icy cousin, carry through the passionate contradictions of childhood." "Drawing on feminist and post-colonial theory, and Victorian medical writings on the female mind and body, this edition places Jane Eyre firmly within the context of nineteenth-century social and political culture. The text is that of the authoritative Clarendon edition."--BOOK JACKET.

The mind of the child : child development in literature, science, and medicine, 1840-1900 by Sally Shuttleworth ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 288 libraries worldwide
What is the difference between a lie and a fantasy, when the subject is a child? Moving between literary and scientific texts, Sally Shuttleworth explores a range of fascinating issues that emerge when the inner world of the child becomes, for the first time, the explicit focus of literary and medical attention. Starting in the 1840s, which saw the publication of explorations of child development by Bront--euml--; and Dickens, as well as some of the first psychiatric studies ofchildhood, this groundbreaking book progresses through post-Darwinian considerations of the child's relations to the a.
Two on a tower : a romance by Thomas Hardy ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 190 libraries worldwide
"Lady Constantine breaks all the rules of social decorum when she falls in love with the beautiful youth Swithin St Cleeve, her social inferior and ten years her junior. The tower in question is a monument converted into an astronomical observatory where together the lovers 'sweep the heavens'." "Science and romance are destined to collide, however, as work, ambition and the pressures of the outside world intrude upon the pair. In what Sally Shuttleworth calls 'a drama of oppositions and conflicts', Hardy's story sets male desire against female constancy, and 'describes an arc across the horizon of late nineteenth-century social and cultural concerns: sexuality, class, history, science and religion'."--BOOK JACKET.
