American Environmental Fiction,


17821847
Matthew Wynn Sivils, Iowa State University, USA
Situating the origins of American environmental fiction in
early Republic natural histories, Indian captivity narratives,
juvenile literature, and the subsequent development of
a uniquely American brand of environmental fiction that
began with James Fenimore Coopers The Pioneers, Matthew
Wynn Sivils argues that these works of early environmental
thought contributed to a growing cultural conception of
the environments importance in shaping the identity of the
fledgling nation decades before the influences of Emersons
Nature and Thoreaus Walden.

This book maps the interrelation between art, theatre, and


opera in a time of dramatic historical change and political
contestation in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Paris.
Contributions to the volume trace the creative connections
and clashes fostered by the sharing of new types of subject
matter throughout the period. Scholars from art history,
theatre studies and musicology take as their subjects a
variety of protagonists from theatre, opera, literature and
history in order to make visible the intimately interwoven
and entangled world of Parisian arts.

Offering cultural, historical and literary readings of the

artworks played in shaping the themes that are central to
our understanding of Romanticism. She argues that they
informed the writing of Romantic period authors, enabling
them to forge often surprising connections between Italian
art, the imagination and the periods political, social and

Edited by Christine Huguet and Simon J. James

Edited by Jonathon Shears, Keele University, UK


and Jen Harrison

Byron and the Discourses of History is a truly valuable


addition to the trend in Byron studies it is full of
sophisticated, thorough, and thoughtful discussion. Byron
might have scratched his head had he foreseen this kind of
interest taken in his work; but I think he would have been
profoundly gratified too.
The Wordsworth Circle
In her study of the relationship between Byrons lifelong
interest in history and the development of history as a
discipline, Carla Pomar focuses on how Byrons writings
interact with a variety of historiographical texts ranging from
monographs to dictionaries. Calling attention to Byrons
massive use of paratexts, she discusses how historical
discourses supplied epistemological models that shaped his
preoccupation with the transmission of historical knowledge
and its ideological uses.

makes use of personal reminiscences, periodicals, images

Browning, Balzac and Dickens to show how the things

A luminous, wide-ranging examination of the Victorian


novelist George Gissings relation to various issues related
to the conditions, concerns, and representation of women
in late-Victorian Britain, George Gissing and the Woman
Question has numerous strengths, among them a fresh and
searching consideration of a number of lesser-known fictional
works by Gissing. An indispensable collection for Gissing
scholars and critics of nineteenth-century British fiction.

Through close readings of individual serials and books


Sarah Dewis examines the significant contributions John
and Jane Webb Loudon made to the gardening press and
democratic discourse. Vilified during their lifetimes by some
sections of the press, they were innovatory in emphasizing
the value of scientific knowledge and the acquisition of
taste. Their publications are placed in the context of book,
media, education, garden and urban social history and
womens journalism.

Nineteenth-Century British
Literature Then and Now
Reading with Hindsight
Simon Dentith, University of Reading, UK
Simon Dentiths rewarding and critically stimulating book
constitutes a major landmark in serious, fresh thinking
about the massive issue of how to read literature in time.
A remarkable achievement.
Francis OGorman, University of Leeds, UK
Examining works by Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Anthony
Trollope, William Morris and John Ruskin, Dentith uses the
notion of hindsight to approach issues of interpretation and
historicity. It is possible, Dentith argues, to read historical
literature with an awareness of the historical context and
of the difference between the past and the present while
allowing that friction or difference to be part of how we think
about a text and how it communicates.

Nineteenth-Century Literature
Ouida and Victorian
Popular Culture
Edited by Jane Jordan, Kingston University, UK
and Andrew King, University of Greenwich, UK
nineteenth-century scholars must be grateful to [Ashgate]
for its willingness to bring out volumes like this one, which few
if any other academic publishers would consider financially
feasible. Full in its coverage, useful for scholars and students
interested in popular culture and nineteenth-century women
writers, this collection of essays belongs in all research libraries.
NBOL-19
Ouida, the pseudonym of Louise Ram (18391908), was
one of the most productive and widely read Victorian writers.
This volume offers a radically new view of Ouida, engaging
with perceptions of popular and women writers, conceptions
of high and low literatures, theatrical adaptation of
fiction, and issues related to imperialism, nationalism and
cosmopolitanism. Its usefulness to scholars is enhanced
by bibliographies of Ouidas published works and stage
adaptations of her fiction.

Ruskins intellectual legacy to working men and women,
especially through education, collections and museums, and
popular print culture, and the range of his following in literary

Romantic Feuds
Transcending the Age of Personality
Kim Wheatley, The College of William and Mary, USA
In a book that is enjoyable as well as persuasive, Wheatley
presents the game of literary feuding as an engrossing
spectator sport. [This monograph] is as constructive and
passionate as its inspiring feuds. As in Shelley and his
Readers, Wheatley demonstrates that literary conflict can
differ from other kinds in facilitating creativity.

Records of Girlhood

NBOL-19
Despite their desire to rise above the so-called age of
personality and personal attacks, Romantic-era figures such
as Robert Southey, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Leigh Hunt,
William Hazlitt, Sydney Owenson, and the explorer John
Ross became enmeshed in public feuds with the Edinburgh
Review and the Quarterly Review. Finding literary genres
and themes of transcendence within these vituperative
exchanges, Wheatley argues that the feuds themselves
unexpectedly contributed to the emergence of Romanticism.

Romanticism, Memory,
and Mourning
Mark Sandy, Durham University, UK
Mark Sandys impressive new study engages rewardingly
with Romantic forms of grief in major writers from William
Blake to W. B. Yeats. While Sandys close readings are alert and
sharply observed, his book will also be welcomed for its fresh
perspectives on how the Romantics bequests of mourning
communicated to their Victorian successors. John Keatss
haunted word Forlorn echoes across every page.

Anne-Marie Millim, University of Luxembourg


Reading the diaries of well-known writers and public figures
such as Elizabeth Rigby Eastlake, Henry Crabb Robinson,
George Eliot, George Gissing, John Ruskin, Edith Simcox
and Gerard Manley Hopkins, Anne-Marie Millim locates the
diary at the intersection of the public and private spheres.
Diaristic writing, Millim argues, played a crucial role in these
writers construction of authorship and in the management
of their emotions for the purposes of perfecting their
observational and critical skills.

Victorian Women and the


Economies of Travel, Translation
and Culture, 18301870
Judith Johnston, The University of Western Australia
an authoritative study of an important area of womens
participation in the profession of writing, engagingly written and
persuasively argued. It makes a timely and effective intervention
in current critical debates about translation and travel literature,
and broadens our understanding of Britains interactions with
other nations and cultures in the nineteenth century.
Hilary Fraser, Birkbeck University of London, UK
Using the metaphor of the published journey, whether it
involves actual travel or translation, Johnston focuses on the
relationships of various British women travellers, translators
and journalists, mainly with continental Europe. Devoted in
part to case studies of women such as Anna Jameson and
Mary Howitt, Johnstons book shows women establishing
themselves as robust participants in the publishing history
and as actors in the broad business of culture.

Pre-Raphaelite Masculinities
Constructions of Masculinity in
Art and Literature
Edited by Amelia Yeates, Liverpool Hope University, UK
and Serena Trowbridge, Birmingham City University, UK
Paying particular attention to the representation of nonnormative or alternative masculinities, the contributors to
Pre-Raphaelite Masculinities examine the works of Dante
Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones,
William Bell Scott, William Holman Hunt, among others,
to show how the ideas and models of masculinity were
constructed in the work of artists and writers associated
with the Pre-Raphaelite movement.

Rooted in the inconceivable and unspeakable event of death,


Romantic poetic forms of grief possess a self-questioning
presence about their own creative processes and formal
structures. These imaginative encounters of Romanticism
with grief and loss, as well as Romantic speculations about
posterity, Sandy suggests, are no less diversified in their use

Kathryn S. Freeman, University of Miami, USA


Tracing the literary relationship between British women
and the Asiatic Society of Bengal, Kathryn Freeman argues
that women writers, distinct from their male counterparts,
interrogated Orientalist distortions of India through the
lens of gender. Her study invites us to rethink the Romantic
paradigm of canonical writers as replicators of Orientalists
cultural imperialism in favor of a more complicated stance
that accommodates the differences between male and
female authors with respect to India.

This exciting, insightful and thoughtful collection


complicates the concept of the professional woman artist,
blurring the boundaries between the so-called domestic crafts
and art production.
Janice Helland, Queens University, Canada
Over the course of the nineteenth century, women in Britain
participated in diverse and prolific forms of artistic labour.
How women faced the pragmatics of their own creative
labour as they pursued vocations, trades and professions
in the domestic handicraft movements, music, design,
commercial illustration, china painting, and authorship
reveals the different ideological positions surrounding
the transition of women from industrious amateurism to
professional artistry.

Examining novels, trial transcripts, medico-legal documents,


broadsides, criminal and scientific writing, illustration and,
notably, Victorian melodrama, Bridget Walsh focuses on
the relationship between the domestic sphere, so central
to Victorian values, and the desecration of that space
by the act of murder. Her book tackles crucial questions
related to Victorian ideas of nationhood, national health,
inequality, newspaper coverage of murder, contested models
of masculinity and the portrayal of the female domestic
murderer at the fin de sicle.

Biology and the Bildungsroman

Ashgate Studies in Publishing History:
Manuscript, Print, Digital

This book represents an impressive scholarly achievement


and will be the authoritative critical work on the novel for
years to come. The background, reception, textual history and
afterlives of this most sophisticated of Dickens novels are
analyzed with both rigor and gusto. An appendix reprinting
all known reviews of the text is indispensable. Our Mutual
Friend and its fortunes are brought alive in these pages
with devotion and detail; Grass has done a great service to
Dickenss last finished novel and to Dickens studies more
generally.
Juliet John, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
Charles Dickenss last finished novel, Our Mutual Friend is
notable for what it reveals about Dickens as an author and
about Victorian publishing more generally. Sean Grasss
publishing history details the novels writing, serialization,
contemporary reception, subsequent editions, and recent
critical and popular revaluation. Rich in historical and
biographical context, Grasss study offers readers a
fascinating account of the creation and afterlife of this
brilliant but extraordinarily odd novel.

Ecocriticism and the

Darwin and Theories of


Aesthetics and Cultural History
Edited by Barbara Larson, University of West Florida,
USA and Sabine Flach, School of the Visual Arts, USA

Professor Feder makes a fresh, distinctive, consistently


illuminating contribution to ecocriticism by reading a strikingly
variegated array of borderline examples of Bildungsroman from
the 1700s to the present against the grain of that genres implicit
claim to tell stories of uniquely human origin and growth.
Lawrence Buell, Harvard University, USA

Darwin and Theories of Aesthetics and Cultural History is


a significant contribution to the fields of theory, Darwin
studies, and cultural history. This collection of eight essays
is the first volume to address, from the point of view of art
and literary historians, Darwins intersections with aesthetic
theories and cultural histories from the eighteenth century
to the present day. Among the philosophers of art influenced
by Darwinian evolution and considered in this collection
are Alois Riegl, Ruskin and Aby Warburg. This stimulating
collection ranges in content from essays on the influence
of eighteenth-century aesthetic theory on Darwin and
nineteenth-century debates circulating around beauty to the
study of evolutionary models in contemporary art.

Melissa Shields Jenkins, Wake Forest University, USA


This is a distinctly new kind of book on fatherhood: an
innovative study of the troubled relations between real and
fictional fathers and sons, and the extra-literary texts that
shaped them. Juxtaposing J.S. Mill and Max Weber, Melissa
Jenkinss lively and provocative analysis tracks shifting
notions of patriarchal authority from Gaskell to Gosse
through engagement with conduct books and family prayers,
palimpsests and science writing, to create an idea of the
father perpetually under reconstruction.
Valerie Sanders, University of Hull, UK
In analyzing the evolution of patriarchal authority in
nineteenth-century culture, Melissa Shields Jenkins argues
that Victorian novelists found new models within nonnarrative forms such as conduct books, biography, religious
manuals, political speeches and professional writing in the
fields of history and science. Jenkinss book contributes
to our understanding of the part played by fathers in the
Victorian cultural imagination, and sheds new light on the
structures underlying the Victorian novel.

Gender Protest and Same-Sex


Desire in Antebellum American
Literature
Margaret Fuller, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel
Hawthorne, and Herman Melville
David Greven, University of South Carolina, USA
In his study of antebellum American literature, David Greven
discovers same-sex desire lurking in places and texts where it
has not been previously recognized. Making the intriguing and
potentially controversial claim that racial difference and conflict
can often mask other forms of difference, he is especially
provocative in his analyses of the centrality of deviant or queer
sexualities in Redburn and The Scarlet Letter.
Leland S. Person, University of Cincinnati, USA
Expanding our understanding of the possibilities and
challenges inherent in the expression of same-sex desire,
Greven identifies a pattern of what he calls gender protest
in the writings of Margaret Fuller, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman
Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne. As Greven shows,
antebellum authors took up the taboo subjects of same-sex
desire and female sexuality and were adept in their use of a
variety of rhetorical means for expressing the inexpressible.

The position of George Eliots poetry within Victorian poetry

A wonderful collection, impressive in its internationalism and

another but still share related issues of minor languages,
nation building, place and race. The essays explore the

British Literature in Context in the

In the first book-length study of this important poetic mode,


Parisot suggests that graveyard poetry is closely connected
to the mid-eighteenth-century aesthetic revision of poetics.
Parisot reads poetry by Robert Blair, Edward Young and
Thomas Gray as a series of poetic experiments that attempt
to accommodate changing religious and reading practices
and translate religious concerns about death and salvation
into parallel reconsiderations of poetic authority, agency,
death and afterlife.

Ashgate Series in Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Studies


Series Editors: Kevin Hutchings, University of Northern British Columbia, Canada and Julia M. Wright, Dalhousie University, Canada
Focusing on the long nineteenth century (ca. 17501900), this series offers a forum for the publication of scholarly work investigating the literary, historical, artistic, and philosophical
foundations of transatlantic culture. A vital field of interdisciplinary investigation, transatlantic scholarship contextualizes its objects of study in relation to exchanges, interactions, and
negotiations that occurred between and among authors and other artists hailing from both sides of the Atlantic. As a result, transatlantic research calls into question established disciplinary
boundaries that have long functioned to segregate various national or cultural literatures and art forms, challenging as well the traditional academic emphasis upon periodization and
canonization. By examining representations dealing with such topics as travel and exploration, migration and diaspora, slavery, aboriginal culture, revolution, colonialism and anti-colonial
resistance, the series offers new insights into the hybrid or intercultural basis of transatlantic identity, politics, and aesthetics.
The editors invite English language studies focusing on any area of the long nineteenth century, including (but not limited to) innovative works spanning transatlantic Romantic and Victorian
contexts. Manuscripts focusing on European, African, US American, Canadian, Caribbean, Central and South American, and Indigenous literature, art, and culture are welcome. We will
consider proposals for monographs, collaborative books, and edited collections.

The Materials of Exchange between Britain and North East


America, 17501900, significantly expands our understanding
of transatlantic cultural exchange between the U.S. and
Britain, both by challenging the U.S.-centeredness of North
American Studies and by extending its consideration of
cross-cultural transatlantic influence well into the nineteenth
century. This book inaugurates a new critical vantage point
for reinterpreting the cultural connections between the two
countries. It is especially attractive for the way it situates
literary readings firmly within material culture contexts, its
ample illustrations offering readers a more tactile experience
of the goods and ideas being discussed.

Daniel Hack, University of Michigan, USA


Bringing together political theorists, historians and literary
scholars, this volume explores the idea of American
democracy in nineteenth-century Britain and traces an

political evolution and its perceived cultural consequences.

Christine Bold, University of Guelph, Canada
Jessica DeSpain examines reprints by Charles Dickens,
Susan Warner, Fanny Kemble and Walt Whitman to theorize
the ongoing transatlantic transformation of texts that took
place before adoption of the Chace Act of 1891. As authors,
readers, and publishers struggled with the unpredictability
of the textual body, the physical book and the physical body
became metaphors of flux, and discourses of destabilized
bodies inflected issues essential to transatlantic culture,
including class, gender, religion and slavery.

Race, Romanticism,

Edited by Paul Youngquist, University of Colorado, USA
Emphasizing circulation and creolization in the Atlantic, this
welcome collection explores the African presence in Romantic
literature, culture, and interpretation. Essays on poetry, the
stage, racism, exploration of Africa, boxing, single mothers,
female beauty, rebellion, holiday festivals, and exiled British
loyalists, examine the varied populations and cultures slavery
forged. Polemical and critical, these essays connect Liverpool,
Kingston, London, Nova Scotia, and Senegal.
Roxann Wheeler, The Ohio State University, USA
Highlighting the importance of diasporic people in shaping
British Romanticism, this collection challenges descriptions
of Romanticism as the expression of a national character
or culture. Within the context of a circum-Atlantic world
driven by an insatiable hunger for sugar and slaves, the
contributors uncover the material contributions and the
extraordinary creativity and resistance of slaves, sailors
and servants. Key is the emergence of race as a category of
identity, class, and containment that ensured the persistence
of servitude after abolition.

Barbara K. Seeber, Brock University, Canada


Barbara Seeber offers us a fascinating new Austen by
situating her writing from letters and poetry to short fiction
and novels in astutely aligned histories of women and
animals. Read through intersecting 18th-century arguments
over animals nature, the animal time of female biology,
the assertion of dominance over lower creatures that made
sport a pleasure, and unexpected claims for vegetarianism,
Austens imagined world grows darker, richer, and deeper
even as literary approaches to animals gain added subtlety
and nuance.
Teresa L. Mangum, The University of Iowa, USA
In her study of animals in Jane Austen, Seeber situates the
authors work within eighteenth- and nineteenth-century
debates about human-animal relations. She shows that
Austen associates the domination of animals with that
of women, challenges readings that identify Austens
depictions of nature as benign celebrations of Englands
imperial power, and demonstrates that Austen links meat
consumption to a human-nature dualism that objectifies not
only nature, but also the women who serve men.

Showing how specific rhetorical strategies used in

representations of continental Europe in works by Ann
Radcliffe, Lord Byron, Charles Dickens and Bram Stoker,
Katarina Gephardt argues that nineteenth-century writers
envisioned their country simultaneously as distinct from
the Continent and as a part of Europe. She suggests that
their imaginative geography of Europe anticipated Britains
ambivalence about European integration.

Proposing a new approach to Jamesian aesthetics, Daniel
Hannah examines the complicated relationship between
Henry Jamess impressionism and his handling of the
public. In readings of The Art of Fiction, What Maisie Knew,
The Wings of the Dove and The American Scene, among
other works, Hannah shows James continually returning
to the impression as a site for exploiting, resisting and
re-imagining a perceived breakdown between the private
and the public.

The Life of the City


Space, Humour, and the Experience of
Truth in Fin-de-sicle Montmartre
Julian Brigstocke, Plymouth University, UK
Studies in Historical Geography

Never has the relationship between power and authority been


so complex. With the idealism of fin-de-sicle Montmartre as
a touchstone, Julian Brigstocke offers an inspiring account
of new forms of experiential authority in the modern city.
This book radically reassesses the political relationship
between art and life in ways that are urgent, immediate and
contemporary.
Helen Nicholson, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
The Life of the City is a bold and innovative reassessment
of the early urban avant-garde movements that sought
to re-imagine and reinvent the experiential life of the city.
Constructing a ground-breaking theoretical analysis of the
relationships between biological life, urban culture, and
modern forms of biopolitical experiential authority, Julian
Brigstocke traces the failed attempts of Parisian radicals to
turn the crisis of authority in late nineteenth century Paris
into an opportunity to invent new forms of urban commons.

Masculinity and Queer Desire


in Spanish Enlightenment
Literature
Mehl Allan Penrose, University of Maryland, USA

In his excellent study of queer issues in eighteenth-century


Spanish literature, Mehl Allan Penrose applies a wide array of
thinking about the nature of erotic acts and the sociohistorical
considerations relative to them. Focusing on male writers,
Penrose convincingly analyzes representations of the
homoerotic in the writing of major figures in Spanish literature.
David William Foster, Arizona State University, USA
In his study of Spanish Enlightenment writings, Mehl Allan
Penrose examines three male tropes: the effeminate and
Francophile petimetre; the bujarrn, who engaged in sexual
relations with other men; and the Arcadian shepherd, who
expressed his desire for other males. Penrose analyzes the
construction of queerness in these writings as a sign
of the anxieties revolving around the supposed decline of
masculinity and the evolving nature of sexuality in Spain.

Nineteenth-Century British
Travelers in the New World
Edited by Christine DeVine, University of Louisiana, USA
This book is a key contribution to the larger dialogue about
literature and nationalism. While the collection works to expand
the context for understanding better known figures such as
Martineau, Trollope, and Dickens, it also usefully illuminates
the work of lesser-known travel writers such as Basil Hall and
Isabella Bird. In exploring the further reaches of nineteenthcentury British travel writing, the volume invites us to read it as
a history of nineteenth-century cultural nationalism.
NBOL-19
By creating an idea of America, popular New World travel
writing offered an understanding of America through British
eyes, and a lens through which nineteenth-century Britain
could view itself. Nineteenth-Century British Travelers in
the New World demonstrates the importance of nineteenthcentury New World travel writing, examining narratives by
some of the popular writers of the day, as well as paintings
and drawings by travelling artists.

The Poetry of Erasmus Darwin


Enlightened Spaces, Romantic Times
Martin Priestman, University of Roehampton, UK
Drawing on a wide range of research in literature and the
history of science, Martin Priestmans in-depth exploration
of Darwins poetry is important not only for its illumination
of Darwinian scholarship, but also for its use of Darwin to
reassess the relationships between the British Enlightenment
and the Romantic period.
Patricia Fara, Clare College,University of Cambridge, UK
In his study of Erasmus Darwins major poetry, Priestman
situates his literary works and Darwin himself within a network
of other scientists, writers, thinkers and social movers and
shakers. Positing a significant shift from the Enlightenments
emphases on conceptual spaces to the Romantic periods
emphases on historical time, Priestman gives Darwins
polymathic Enlightenment worldview and cognate poetics
their due in a period when texts are too often judged by their
adherence to a retrospectively constructed Romanticism.

Philip Shaw, University of Leicester, UK

Dewey W. Hall, California State Polytechnic University, USA


Romantic Naturalists, Early Environmentalists makes
a contribution to scholarship in the field by bringing
together a range of transatlantic authors White,
Wordsworth, Emerson, Hill, and Muir to show their literary,
philosophical, environmental, ecological, conservationist, and
preservationist intersections. It is a wide-ranging study that
makes connections not previously foregrounded in criticism.
Douglas Kneale, Brock University, Canada
In his study of Romantic naturalists and early
environmentalists, Hall claims the creation of the National
Trust in the United Kingdom and the National Parks in
the United States were both shaped by literature. Central
to Halls project are links among Gilbert White, William
Wordsworth, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Octavia Hill and John
Muir in the context of the vexed relationship between the

In a moving intervention into Romantic-era depictions of

uncovering a history of changing attitudes that qualify notions
of suffering on and off the battlefield as noble or heroic.

Shakespeare and the


Culture of Romanticism
Edited by Joseph M. Ortiz, University of Texas, USA
A Yankee Book Peddler US Core Title for 2013
Joseph M. Ortiz accomplishes for Shakespearean reception
what the New Historicists did for Shakespearean studies in
the 1980s. He presents a critical investigation that moves
beyond the works of the dominant male writers of the period,
and attends to broader contexts of cultural response among
theater directors and performers, women critics and poets.
At a point in reception studies when one might complacently
assume that the important players have all been identified
and adequately reviewed, Ortiz has assembled a collection of
essays that from start to finish develop new and revisionary
approaches to the Romantic reception of Shakespeare.
Frederick Burwick, University of California, USA
How theatre directors, actors, poets, women writers, political
philosophers, gallery owners and other professionals in the
nineteenth century turned to Shakespeare in myriad ways to
advance their own political, artistic, or commercial agendas
is the subject of this collection. Whether Whig or Tory, male
or female, intellectual or commercial, Romantic writers
found in Shakespeare a powerful medium through which to
claim authority for their particular interests.

The Interface between Print and Oral Traditions


Edited by David Atkinson, University of Aberdeen, UK
and Steve Roud
In recent years, the assumption that traditional songs
originated from a primarily oral tradition has been
challenged by research into street literature. Not only are
some traditional singers known to have learned songs from
printed sources, but most of the songs were composed
by professional writers. This volume engages with the
long-running debate over the origin of traditional songs by
examining street literatures interaction with and influence

Utopia and Its Afterlives


Daniel Sipe, University of Missouri, USA
articulate, engaging and wide-ranging study Very
readably integrating phases of close reading with robust
theoretical appetite, it is particularly successful in engineering
a dialogue between elements of a contemporary, largely
Anglo-American, utopian studies perspective and its primary
French-language corpus, balanching historical sensitivity with
analytical energy in the process.

Daniel Sipe focuses on the persistent afterlife of utopias


in works by artists and writers who include Franois-Ren
de Chateaubriand, Etienne Cabet, J.J. Grandville, Charles
Barbara, Auguste Villiers de lIsle-Adam, Victor Hugo, Gustave
Courbet, and Charles Baudelaire. By juxtaposing these

Jane L. Bownas

Focusing on Algernon Charles Swinburnes poems on


Apollo, Levin calls for a re-examination of the poets place in
Victorian studies in light of his contributions to nineteenthcentury intellectual history. Levin persuasively shows that
Swinburne was not simply a poet provacateur who enjoyed
controversy but failed to provide valid cultural commentary,
but was rather a profound thinker whose insights into
nineteenth-century spirituality are expressed throughout his
poetry on Apollo.

Murray contends that cycles of catastrophe and catharsis


are everywhere in the works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who
viewed the hardships of his lifetime, like the catastrophes
of Greek tragedy, as stages in a process of humanitys
purification. Offering new readings of canonical poems,
as well as neglected plays and critical works, Murray
elaborates Coleridges tragic vision in relation to Romantic
contemporaries and tragic theorists from Aristotle to Steiner.

Transformations of Electricity in
Nineteenth-Century Literature
and Science
Stella Pratt-Smith, University of Oxford, UK
Engaging with Victorian scientific texts, popular and specialist
periodicals and the work of leading mid-century novelists,
including Charles Dickens, Charlotte Bront and Wilkie Collins,
Stella Pratt-Smith traces the synthesis of nineteenth-century
electricity made possible by the powerful combination of
science, literature and the popular imagination. She contends
that writing and reading about electricity appropriated and
expanded its imaginative scope, transformed its factual origins
and applications and contravened the bounds of literary genres
and disciplinary constraints.

Indigenous Childhoods
Helen May, University of Otago, New Zealand, Baljit Kaur
and Larry Prochner, University of Alberta, Canada

Combining detailed historical context with close rhetorical


analysis, Shih-Wen Chen brings out the subtle distinction
and occluded histories that reveal the diverse and subtle
ways images of China in the nineteenth century vary
from the conventional reading of stereotype. Extensively
researched, well argued, topical and expansive in its scope,
her book provides a detailed and compelling case for the
variegated lens British childrens fiction offers for viewing the
complexities and nuances of Sino-British relations.

In her exploration of China in British childrens literature,


Shih-Wen Chen considers travelogue storybooks, historical
novels, adventure stories and periodicals to demonstrate
the diversity of images of China in the Victorian and
Edwardian imagination. Her book provides a new context for
understanding how China was constructed and sheds light
on British cultural history and on the history and uses of
childrens literature.

Examining the experiences of very young native children


in three British colonies, the authors focus on the shared as
well as unique aspects of the colonial experience in infant
schools across the northern part of the North Island of
New Zealand, Upper Canada and British-controlled India.
Informed by archival research, Empire, Education, and
Indigenous Childhoods illuminates both the pervasiveness of
missionary education and the diverse contexts in which its
attendant ideals were applied.

Using the Bible in


Practical Theology
Historical and Contemporary Perspectives
Zo Bennett, Cambridge Theological Federation, UK
and Anglia Ruskin University, UK

In this groundbreaking book Zo Bennett brilliantly sketches


the public theology of John Ruskin and skilfully uses it to
illuminate practical theology and biblical hermeneutics. It
is an outstanding contribution, not only to public theology
but also to theology more generally. Calling on a wide
array of interpretative skills, she illuminates a subject of
pressing concern in a readable and compelling manner
and demonstrates the value of historical study for the
development of critical reflection. The study of John Ruskin,
the Bible and theology will never look the same again.
Christopher Rowland, Queens College, UK
Exploring how the Bible may be appropriately used in public
theology, this book looks at types of modern practical theology
with specific emphasis on the use of the Bible. Drawing on
the lessons learned through the study of Ruskin, and the case
study of the Kairos Palestine Document, this book invites
readers to examine the nature and relevance of biblical
engagement, and to apply and test what has been learned.

Reading canonical authors such as John Henry Newman,

Wilde through a dual lens of literary history and post-liberal
theology, Emily Walker Heady suggests that Victorian
authors discuss conversion experiences in the context of
the modes in which they are narrated. Thus, conversion
narratives became a form of literary criticism, while literary
conventions functioned as a means of discussing the nature
of conversion.

Sweden and Norway

David E. Latan, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA

In the mid-1880s, an influential British architectural journal


published an article characterizing Renaissance architecture
as a corruption of classical architecture. By the turn of the
century, however, the same journal praised the Renaissance
architect Filippo Brunelleschi as the Christopher Columbus
of modern architecture. Relevant for architectural
historians, literary scholars and those in Victorian studies,
this book examines the conflicting late nineteenthcentury characterizations of Renaissance architecture and
reassesses them within the formation of a modern, British
architectural profession.

Volume 12, Tome I: Kierkegaards


Influence on Literature, Criticism
and Art
The Germanophone World
Edited by Jon Stewart, University of Copenhagen,
Denmark
Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and
Resources

Tome I explores Kierkegaards influence on literature and art


in the Germanophone world. He was an important source
of inspiration for German writers such as Theodor Fontane,
Thomas Mann, Rainer Maria Rilke, Alfred Andersch, and
Martin Walser. Kierkegaards influence was particularly
strong in Austria during the generation of modernist authors
such as Rudolf Kassner, Karl Kraus, Robert Musil, and
Hermann Broch. Due presumably in part to the German
translations of Kierkegaard in the Austrian cultural journal
Der Brenner, Kierkegaard continued to be used by later
figures such as the novelist and playwright, Thomas
Bernhard. His thought was also appropriated in Switzerland
through the works of Max Frisch and Friedrich Drrenmatt.
The famous Czech author Franz Kafka identified personally
with Kierkegaards love story with Regine Olsen and made
use of his reflections on this and other topics.

Edited by Jon Stewart, University of Copenhagen,

Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and
Resources

Tome II is dedicated to the use of Kierkegaard by later Danish


writers. Almost from the beginning Kierkegaards works were
standard reading for these authors. Danish novelists and
critics from the Modern Breakthrough movement in the 1870s
were among the first to make extensive use of his writings.
These included the theoretical leader of the movement,
the critic Georg Brandes, who wrote an entire book on
Kierkegaard, and the novelists Jens Peter Jacobsen and
Henrik Pontoppidan. The next generation of writers from the
turn of the century and through the First World War also saw
in Kierkegaard important points of inspiration. These included
Ernesto Dalgas and Harald Kidde, who used elements of
Kierkegaards thought in their novels. Modern Danish writers
such as Karen Blixen, Martin A. Hansen, and Villy Srensen
have continued to incorporate Kierkegaard into their works.
There can be no doubt that Kierkegaard has indelibly
stamped his name on Danish literature.

A Critical Biography

Kierkegaard Research: Sources, Reception and


Resources

Tome III investigates the works of Swedish and Norwegian


writers and artists inspired by Kierkegaard. In Sweden the
novelist Victoria Benedictsson made use of Kierkegaard during
the period of the so-called Modern Breakthrough, as did the
playwright August Strindberg. Later Swedish writers have
continued to draw on his thought, such as Selma Lagerlof,
Lars Ahlin, Lars Gyllensten, and Carl-Henning Wijkmark. The
Norwegian reception of Kierkegaard also began remarkably
early and was shaped by the leading names in Norwegian
cultural life. Despite his coy responses to questions about his
relation to Kierkegaard, Henrik Ibsen clearly seems to have
been inspired by the Dane in works such as Brand. Norwegian
writer and poet Bjornstjerne Bjornson, who was influenced by
the Modern Breakthrough movement, was also deeply inspired
by Kierkegaard. Finally, the celebrated Norwegian artist
Edvard Munch (1863-1944) closely studied key Kierkegaardian
concepts such as anxiety, and his influence is notable in his
iconic paintings such as The Scream.

Tome IV examines Kierkegaards surprisingly extensive


influence in the Anglophone world of literature and art,
particularly in the United States. His thought appears in the
work of the novelists Walker Percy, James Baldwin, Flannery
OConnor, William Styron, Don Delillo, and Louise Erdrich.
He has also been used by the famous American literary
critics, George Steiner and Harold Bloom. The American
composer Samuel Barber made use of Kierkegaard
in his musical works. Kierkegaard has also exercised
an influence on British and Irish letters. W.H. Auden
sought in Kierkegaard ideas for his poetic works, and the
contemporary English novelist David Lodge has written a
novel Therapy, in which Kierkegaard plays an important role.
Cryptic traces of Kierkegaard can also be found in the work
of the famous Irish writer James Joyce.

The History of the Book in the East


This series on the history of the book in the East focuses attention on three areas of the world which for a long time have been
undeservedly left on the margins of the global history of the book: the Middle East, South Asia and East Asia. The importance
of these three regions of the world lies not only in the sheer antiquity of printing in East Asia, where both movable type and
wood blocks were used centuries before Gutenbergs invention changed the face of book production in Europe, but also in the
manuscript traditions and very different responses to printing technology in the Middle East and South Asia. This series forms
an important counterbalance to the Eurocentrism of the history of the book as practised in the West.
The three volumes are edited by renowned experts in the field and each includes an introduction which provides an overview
of research in the field. This series offers a significant benefit to students, lecturers and libraries as it brings together leading
articles in the field from disparate journals which are often difficult to locate and of limited access. Students are thus able to
study leading articles side by side for comparison whilst lecturers are provided with an invaluable one-stop teaching resource.

Edited by Geoffrey Roper, University of Cambridge, UK

The history of the book in East Asia is closely linked to


problems of language and script, problems which have also
had a profound impact on the technology of printing and on
the social and intellectual impact of print in this area. This
volume contains key readings on the history of printed books
and manuscripts in China, Korea and Japan and includes an
introduction which provides an overview of the history of the
book in East Asia and sets the readings in their context.

This selection of papers by scholarly specialists offers an


introduction to the history of the book and book culture
in West Asia and North Africa from antiquity to the 20th
century. The cultural, aesthetic, technological, religious,
social, political and economic factors of the historical
developments are considered throughout, and the articles
discuss not only the Arabic, Persian and Turkish books of the
Muslim tradition, but also the Hebrew, Syriac and Armenian
contributions.

Women, Infanticide and the


Press, 18221922
News Narratives in England and Australia
Nicola Goc, University of Tasmania, Australia
this is a meticulous book of the infanticidal actions of
young women in England and Australia in the 19th and
early 20th centuries. It demonstrates their desperation, their
resistance, and in some cases their deaths against the social,
political and legislative history of the day as reported by the
press. This book will have particular appeal for crime news
researchers, for those interested in the lives and stories of
women, and for fans of Foucault.
Pacific Journalism Review
Goc applies Critical Discourse Analysis to infanticide news
in the period 1822-1922 to reveal both the broader patterns
and the particular rhetorical strategies journalists in England
and Australia used to report on infanticidal women. Her
study is a rich and nuanced treatment of how infanticide
narratives were politicized in the press and woven into
narratives about the regulation of women, medicine, the
law and social welfare that ultimately affected political
developments like the 1834 Poor Law.
