"This volume of Poems and Poems in Prose inaugurates the Oxford English Texts Complete Works of Oscar Wilde.

The Victorian social-problem novel : the market, the individual, and communal life by Josephine M Guy( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The critical history of Victorian social-problem novels maps many of the changes in the theory and practice of literary history in the second half of the twentieth century. Josephine M. Guy's account of various critical responses to these enduringly popular works examines a range of approaches, particulary those of historicist, new-historicist and Marxist critics. Her own critical account of the sub-genre is built around close readings of such core texts as Hard Times, Mary Barton, North and South, Sybil, Alton Locke and Felix Holt. By focusing on the intellectual context in which these novels were produced - on the Victorians' debates about 'the social'and their understanding of what is meant by a 'social problem' - she recharacterises an important moment in mid-nineteenth-century literary history

Nineteenth-century Britain saw the rise of secularism, the development of a modern capitalist economy and multi-party democracy, as well as an explosive growth in technological, scientific and medical knowledge.

Oscar Wilde's profession : writing and the culture industry in the late nineteenth century by Josephine M Guy( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A materialist account of Wilde's career as a writer, Oscar Wilde's Profession contests three widely held assumptions about his success: that there is a clear distinction between his life as a journalist and his artistic celebrity; that he was an aesthetic 'purist' in his attitude towards his own books; and that his career was driven largely by oppositional sexual or nationalist politics. The authors bring together evidence from the publishing trade, from Wilde's contracts and correspondence with publishers, and from documentation about his earnings (particularly the plays) to show that he always worked for money, but that he achieved far less financial success than is usually thought. Far from subverting the nascent consumerism of his time, he was thoroughly immersed in its values - in the commodification of culture in which books became product. At the same time, Oscar Wilde's Profession provides a uniquely detailed account of Wilde's processes of composition, springing from the re-examination of his writing practice currently being undertaken in the Oxford English Texts edition of his complete work. It surveys his writing practices across the whole of the oeuvre, and radically reinterprets the significance of his revision and 'plagiarism'."--Jacket
Politics and value in English studies : a discipline in crisis? by Josephine M Guy( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current debate about the nature of English studies has questioned the status of English as a discipline. In this 1993 book, Josephine Guy and Ian Small set this so-called 'crisis in English' within the larger context of disciplinary knowledge. They examine the teaching of English and literary studies in the United States and Britain, and argue that the explicit attempt by some radical critics on both sides of the Atlantic to politicise the discipline has profound consequences for the nature of English studies. They describe the state of disciplinary knowledge, together with its social and philosophical preconditions; they analyse proposals for reform; and they discuss the ways in which these proposed reforms would affect the three main practices of the discipline - literary criticism, literary history and text-editing. In the process they demystify issues and arguments which have often in the past been obscured by jargon and polemic
The textual condition of Nineteenth-Century literature by Josephine M Guy( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this important new book, Guy and Small develop a new account of literary creativity in the late nineteenth century, one that combines concepts generated by text-theorists concerning the embodied nature of textuality with the empirical insights of text-editors and book historians. Through these developments, which the authors term the 'textual turn, ' this study examines the textual condition of nineteenth-century literature. The authors explore works by Dickens, Wilde, Hardy, Yeats, Swinburne, FitzGerald, Pater, Arnold, Pinero and Shaw, connecting questions about what a work textually 'is' w
Studying Oscar Wilde : history, criticism, and myth by Josephine M Guy( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Studying Oscar Wilde: History, Criticism, & Myth takes issue with many assumptions current in Wilde scholarship. Professors Guy and Small are interested in the tension between Wilde's enduring popularity with the general reading public as a perennially witty entertainer and his status among academics as a complex, politicized writer attuned to the cultural and philosophical currents associated with modernity. A number of commonly held views are challenged." "To what extent is De Profundis autobiographical? How sophisticated is the learning exhibited in Intentions? In what ways are the society comedies "about" homosexuality?" "The volume also examines some of Wilde's lesser-known, unfinished works and scenarios, including The Cardinal of Avignon, La Sainte Courtisane, and A Florentine Tragedy (all printed as appendices), arguing that these "failed" works provide important insight into the reasons for Wilde's popular success." "Guy and Small have authored numerous articles and books on Wilde. This new book will be a must read for scholars, but it is also written in a jargon-free language that speaks to the wider audience of readers who enjoy Oscar Wilde."--Jacket

The Edinburgh companion to fin-de-siècle literature, culture and the arts by Josephine M Guy( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late nineteenth-century fin de siècle has proved an enduringly fascinating moment in literary and cultural history. It is associated with the emergence of intriguing figures - such as the 'new woman' and 'uranian'; with contradictory impulses - of decadence and decay on the one hand, and of experiment and renewal, on the other; as well as with unprecedented intercultural exchange, especially between Britain and France. The 22 newly-commissioned essays collected here re-examine some of the key concepts taken to define the fin de siècle, while also introducing hitherto overlooked cultural phenomena into the frame, such as the importance of humanitarianism. The impact of recent research in material culture is explored, particularly how the history of the book and the history of performance culture is changing our understanding of this period. A wide range of cultural activities is discussed?from participation in avant-garde theatre to interior decoration and from the writing of poetry to political and religious activism. Together, the essays provide new scholarly insights into British fin de siècle and enrich our understanding of this complex period, while paying particular attention to the importance of regionalism
