Most widely held works by Esther H Schor
The Cambridge companion to Mary Shelley by Esther H Schor( )
28 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 2,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Cambridge Companion to Mary Shelley, leading scholars discuss her work in several fascinating contexts: literary history, aesthetic and literary culture, the legacies of her parents William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, and of course the life and afterlife in cinema and robotics of her most famous work Frankenstein. Other topics covered include Mary Shelley as a biographer and cultural critic and her travel writing. The contributions are sophisticated but accessible, challenging but lucid, and are complemented by a chronology, a guide to further reading and a select filmography
The Other Mary Shelley beyond Frankenstein by Audrey A Fisch( )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although Frankenstein has now been canonized in the Romantic classroom, less attention than ever has been paid to the considerable corpus of Mary Shelley's other works - in fact, until now the excitement of the last decade over feminist themes found in Frankenstein has helped to obscure the actual persona of its author. This collection of essays however, written by a pre-eminent assemblage of Romantic scholars, begins to sketch a portrait of the "other Mary Shelley"; the writer and intellectual who recognized the turbulent relationship among the various agendae of family, gender, and society, and whose narratives still resonate strongly in the setting of contemporary politics and culture. By analysing a previously neglected body of reviews, essays, novellas, letters, biographies, sketches, and tales, and in locating Mary Shelley as a shrewd critic of the Romantic zeitgeist, the essays in this volume offer a ground-breaking, complete evaluation of one of the foremost thinkers of the 19th century
Bearing the dead : the British culture of mourning from the enlightenment to Victoria by Esther H Schor( )
13 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 973 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the textual and social practices of the British Enlightenment and its early nineteenth-century heirs, Schor uncovers the ways in which mourning mediated between received ideas of virtue, both classical and Christian, and a burgeoning, property-based commercial society. The circulation of sympathies maps the means by which both valued things and values themselves are distributed within a culture. Delving into philosophy, politics, economics, and social history as well as literary texts, Schor traces a shift in the British discourse of mourning in the wake of the French Revolution: What begins as a way to effect a moral consensus in society turns into a means of conceiving and bringing forth history. Culminating in a comparison between Victorian and Enlightenment cultures of mourning, her book provides powerful evidence that even as we give life to the dead, the dead shape the lives we are able to live
