Records of girlhood : an anthology of nineteenth-century women's childhoods by Valerie Sanders( )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most contributors vividly describe their fears and fantasies, together with obsessive religious practices, and the development of an inner life as a survival strategy." "This collection makes vital out-of-print material available to scholars working in the field of women's autobiography, the history of childhood, and Victorian literature. The volume will also appeal to general readers interested in biography, autobiography, the history of family life, education, and women's writing: read alongside Victorian women's novels it offers an intriguing commentary on some of their key themes."--Jacket
The private lives of Victorian women : autobiography in nineteenth-century England by Valerie Sanders( Book )

17 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The brother-sister culture in nineteenth-century literature : from Austen to Woolf by Valerie Sanders( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book argues that brother-sister relationships, idealized by the Romantics, intensified in nineteenth-century English domestic culture, and is a neglected key to understanding Victorian gender relations. Attracted by the apparent purity of the sibling bond, novelists and poets also acknowledged its innate ambivalence and instability, through conflicting patterns of sublimated devotion, revenge fantasy, and corrosive obsession. The final chapter shows how the brother-sister bond was permanently changed by the experience of the First World War
Eve's renegades : Victorian anti-feminist women novelists by Valerie Sanders( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in 3 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focuses on the work of four Victorian anti-feminist women writers - Eliza Lynn Linton, Charlotte M. Yonge, Mrs Humphry Ward, and Margaret Oliphant - examining their self-contradictory responses to the debate about women's role in family life and society. Individual chapters review women's anti-feminism from 1792-1850, and fresh readings of their best-known novels emphasize the inconsistencies of their masculine and feminine ideals

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragi-comedy of Victorian fatherhood by Valerie Sanders( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examining Victorian middle-class fatherhood from the fathers' own perspective, Valerie Sanders dismantles the persistent stereotype of the nineteenth-century paterfamilias by focusing on the intimate family lives of influential public men. Beginning with Prince Albert as a high-profile patriarchal role-model, and comparing the parallel case histories of prominent Victorians such as Dickens, Darwin, Huxley and Gladstone, the book explores the strains on men in public life as they managed their private relationship with their children and found a language for the expression of their pleasure, grief and anxiety as fathers. In a context of cultural uncertainty about the legal rights and moral responsibilities of fatherhood, the study draws on a wealth of unpublished journals and letters to show how conscientious Victorian fathers in effect invented a meaningful domestic role for themselves which has been little understood."--pub. desc
Deerbrook by Harriet Martineau( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Ibbotson sisters, Hester and Margaret, arrive at the village of Deerbrook to stay with their cousin Mr Grey and his wife, speculation is rife that one of them might marry the local apothecary Edward Hope. Although he is immediately attracted to Margaret, Hope is ultimately persuaded to marry the beautiful Hester. The unhappiness of their marriage is compounded when a malicious village gossip accuses Hope of grave-robbing

The selected works of Margaret Oliphant by Margaret Oliphant( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 41 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

Victorian and Edwardian anti-feminism( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new collection from Routledge and Edition Synapse provides the documentary backdrop to this growing critical interest in anti-feminism. Based on the premise that to understand the social and intellectual context of the women's movement and feminism, it is crucial that all contributions to the debate be explored, and not just those of the 'winning side', the collection meets an urgent need to restore to the historical record a sense of how feminism was a deeply marginalized position, and to remember that anti-feminism in many cases better represents public opinion concerning the gender politics of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries

The Rectory magazine by Lewis Carroll( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Rectory Magazine, produced by the thirteen-year-old Lewis Carroll with contributions from other members of the Croft Rectory, displays the young professional at work--as poet, short-story writer, journalist, artist and editor. The confident self-mocking style, comic verse, word puzzles, nonsense games and parody we associate with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland are clearly exhibited in this delightfully whimsical early family magazine."--Lower cover
