Harriet Martineau, Victorian imperialism, and the civilizing mission by Deborah Anna Logan( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deborah A. Logan's in-depth study of Harriet Martineau's writing on nineteenth century imperialism elaborates Victorian concerns about radically shifting social ideologies. To understand Martineau's analyses of the Empire Question, Logan argues, is to recognize her authority as an insightful political commentator, historian, economist, and sociologist whose eclectic studies and intellectual curiosity positioned her as a shrewd observer of the imperial enterprise. Logan's primary sources are Martineau's nonfiction works, particularly periodicals writing, complemented by relevant didactic fiction, correspondence, and memoirs. Key texts include History of the Peace; Letters from Ireland, and Endowed Schools of Ireland; Illustrations of Political Economy; Eastern Life, Present and Past; and History of British Rule in India and Suggestions for the Future Rule of India. Logan emphasizes Martineau's negotiation of the conflict arising when the Empire's practices are measured against its stated principles, particularly when the Civilizing Mission compromises, rather than facilitates, indigenous cultural integrity. The image of Martineau that emerges is complex and fascinating: an advocate and a critic of British imperialism, she both championed and questioned the Civilizing Mission. Written with an awareness that she was recording contemporary history for future generations, Martineau's commentary on this perpetually intriguing, often tragic, and always instructive chapter in British and world history offers important insights that enhance and complicate our understanding of imperialism and globalization."--Jacket

Fallenness in Victorian women's writing : marry, stitch, die, or do worse by Deborah A Logan( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Angel-in-the-House is an ideal commonly used to define sexual standards of the Victorian Age. Although widely considered to be the cultural "norm," the Victorian Angel, revered for her morality, domestic virtue, and dedication to the family, is more frequently depicted in the literature of the time as an anomaly. In fact, a primary concern of Victorian literature appears to be the many exceptions to this unattainable ideal, which, according to the period's madonna-or-harlot polarity, casts these exceptions as fallen women. Deborah Anna Logan presents an unusual study of this image of fallenness in Victorian literature, focusing on the links among angelic ideology, sexuality, and, more important, social deviance." "Logan's study is distinguished by its exclusive focus on women writers, including Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, Elizabeth Gaskell, Harriet Martineau, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Florence Nightingale, Sarah Grand, and Mary Prince. Logan utilizes primary texts from these Victorian writers as well as contemporary critics such as Catherine Gallagher and Elaine Showalter to provide the background on social factors that contributed to the construction of fallen-woman discourse."--Jacket
The hour and the woman : Harriet Martineau's "somewhat remarkable" life by Deborah Anna Logan( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time when women were valued primarily for appearance, social class, and marital status, Martineau - plain, poor, and single - fought against the odds to win recognition as a writer. Her first professional triumph came in the 1830s when she published a multivolume work on political economy. International fame and literary reputation followed, launching a career that would span the next forty years and plunge Martineau into heated reform efforts on both sides of the Atlantic."--Jacket
Harriet Martineau and the Irish question : condition of post-famine Ireland by Deborah Logan( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aside from Letters from Ireland and Endowed Schools of Ireland, Harriet Martineau wrote an additional thirty-eight articles about Ireland for London's Daily News between 1852 and 1866, plus another thirteen articles for Household Words, Atlantic Monthly, Once a Week, Westminster Review, and New York Evening Post. It is those uncollected articles that are the focus of this study and that compliment her earlier work by providing subsequent commentary on Ireland's post-famine, reconstruction period. Whereas Letters from Ireland (1852) is a structured, sociological travel memoir meant for both periodical and volume publication, and Endowed Schools (1858) addresses a specific aspect of Irish education reform, these articles chart the course of economic and social progress in post-famine Ireland in terms of industry, public works, economy, and agriculture. They also record the growth of Irish nationalism in America and Ireland, while exploring the question of Ireland's political representation during this crucial pre-independence period. Points highlighted in this study include Martineau's unshakable optimism about the economic and social recovery of post-famine Ireland, her steady refusal to consider repeal of the Union as a viable option for remedying Ireland's troubles, and her insistence that Ireland's problems were social, not political. Treating social issues as the primary ailment and politics as merely a symptom, Martineau's writing on these topics provides important insights into the challenges facing Ireland during its transition from a feudal society to a modern, independent nation during the period of the British Empire's greatest expansion and swift demise. There are five components comprising her writing on Ireland: Ireland (Illustrations of Political Economy, 1832); History of the Peace, 1849-51; Letters from Ireland (1852); Endowed Schools of Ireland (1858); and the "Condition of Post-famine Ireland" (1852-66). It is the latter that is the focus of this volume."--Publisher's website
