This is an outstanding guide to the current state of scholarship in an area that has become central to our understanding of nineteenth-century culture.

Reclamation and Representation

This volume illuminates the challenges posed by the literary archive by assembling an impressive and multi-faceted range of approaches and methodologies. Establishing a dialogue between literary scholars and archivists that is often absent from other studies, this collection of essays offers a thought-provoking yet refreshing reminder of the possibilities and difficulties of working with archives. This is undoubtedly a major contribution to our thinking about the literary archive as both source and subject. Mark Nixon, University of Reading, UK This volume offers new and challenging interdisciplinary approaches to the use and study of literary archives. Interrogating literary and archival methodology and foregrounding new forms of textual scholarship, the collection includes essays from both academics and archivists to address the full complexity of the study of modern literary archives.

Balzac, Grandville, and the Rise of Book Illustration


Keri Yousif, Indiana State University, USA
How the rise of book illustration affected the historic hegemony of the word is the topic of Keri Yousifs study of the complex relationship between the novelist Honor de Balzac and the illustrator J. J. Grandville. As Yousif shows, the industrialisation of the illustrated book spawned a triadic relationship between publisher, writer and illustrator that transformed the book from a product of individual genius to a cooperative and commercial affair.

ASHGATE

Nineteenth-Century Literature

Constructing Girlhood through the Periodical Press, 18501915


Kristine Moruzi, University of Alberta, Canada
Ashgate Studies in Childhood, 1700 to the Present

Early Modern Poetics in Melville and Poe


Memory, Melancholy, and the Emblematic Tradition
William E. Engel, The University of the South, USA
Engel brings an outstanding scholarly reputation in English Renaissance literature to his task, and it is just what the study of American literature needs at present: explorations of its debt to the literature of the past and its use of that past in new ways to transform American literary culture. Bainard Cowan, University of Dallas, USA While other scholars have remarked on the influence of seventeenth-century literature on Melville and Poe, Engel is the first to explore how their close readings of early modern texts influenced their compositional practice. Rather than simply offering an account of what these authors read, Engel focuses principally on the overlapping rhetorical and iconic assumptions of the Art of Memory and its relation to chiasmus in order to illustrate the authors profound debt to the past. Includes 10 b&w illustrations March 2012 Hardback ebook PDF ebook ePUB 204 pages 978-1-4094-3586-0 978-1-4094-3587-7 978-1-4094-7920-8 55.00

Faith, Hope and Poetry


Theology and the Poetic Imagination
Malcolm Guite, University of Cambridge, UK
Ashgate Studies in Theology, Imagination and the Arts

An important contribution to girls studies, childrens literature, and periodical scholarship, Kristine Moruzis book provides a nuanced historicizing of the emergence of girls as subject, agent, target audience, and contested ground in relation to mass print culture. Linda Hughes, Texas Christian University, USA Focusing on six popular British girls periodicals, Moruzi explores the debate about the shifting nature of Victorian girlhood between 1851 and 1915. Moruzis analyses of competing discourses within girls periodicals demonstrate how these publications were able to frame feminine behaviour in ways that embraced the changing role of girls in nineteenth-century society while also attempting to maintain traditional feminine ideals of virtue and purity. Includes 29 b&w illustrations August 2012 Hardback ebook PDF ebook ePUB 244 pages 978-1-4094-2266-2 978-1-4094-2267-9 978-1-4094-6139-5 55.00

Malcolm Guite, in this wide-ranging and original study, helps us see how poetry is if we let ourselves be drawn in and shaped by it a means of making connections with the fundamental way things are, and so too a way of connecting with a God who is himself a pattern of connection as Trinity, open to share the divine reality with created life. Here are materials for a profound theology of the imagination, developed in dialogue with writers both familiar and unfamiliar, beautifully combining close reading with wide horizons. The Most Revd Dr Rowan Williams Faith, Hope and Poetry explores the poetic imagination as a way of knowing; a way of seeing reality more clearly. Presenting a series of critical appreciations of English poetry from Anglo-Saxon times to the present day, Malcolm Guite applies the insights of poetry to contemporary issues and the contribution poetry can make to our religious knowing and the way we do Theology. Readers of this book will return to their reading of poetry equipped with new insights and enthusiasm and will be challenged to integrate imaginative ways of knowing into their other academic and intellectual pursuits.

Ecology and the Literature of the British Left


The Red and the Green
Edited by John Rignall, University of Warwick, UK, H. Gustav Klaus, University of Rostock, Germany and Valentine Cunningham, University of Oxford, UK
If it is to gain further acceptance, the new discipline of ecocriticism must produce sustained and serious literary criticism. This collection of richly literary-critical essays shows the way by combining left-leaning (red) and ecological (green) concerns. The relevance of these concerns to our present historical situation is repeatedly illuminated by penetrating analyses of literary reflections upon ecology. This is a compelling read for anyone alert to literature and the environment. Gabriel Egan, De Montfort University, UK Premised on the belief that a social and an ecological agenda are compatible, this collection offers readings in the ecology of left and radical writing from the Romantic period to the present. In historicizing and connecting environmentally sensitive literature with socialist thought, these essays explore the interactive vision of nature and society in the work of writers ranging from William Wordsworth and John Clare to John Berger and John Burnside.

The Fox-Hunting Controversy, 17812004


Class and Cruelty
Allyson N. May, The University of Western Ontario, Canada
This is an engaging book, a fascinating read, which combines the social and literary histories of fox hunting, from the eighteenth century to the present day. Scholars as well as the general reader will savour the subtle analysis of class and other social relationships, of the place of the pony in childrens literature, and the astute judgments about the surprisingly widespread references to the hunt in recent as well as older literary works. Douglas Hay, York University, Canada Hugely popular in its own day, Peter Beckfords Thoughts on Hunting is often cited as marking the birth of modern hunting and continues to be quoted from affectionately today by the hunting fraternity. This study explores the attacks made on fox hunting from 1781 to the legal ban achieved in 2004, as well as assessing the reasons for its continued appeal and post-ban survival. Chapters cover debates in the areas of: class and hunting; concerns over cruelty and animal welfare; party politics; the hunt in literature and nostalgia.

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
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 eighteenthcentury aesthetic theory on Darwin and nineteenthcentury debates circulating around beauty to the study of evolutionary models in contemporary art.

Dickens Adapted
Edited by John Glavin, Georgetown University, USA
From their first appearance in print, Dickenss fictions have become a wellspring of inspiration for the full spectrum of genres: plays, films, television specials and series, operas, new novels and even miniature and model villages. The essays in this volume break from earlier mimetic accounts to take the new works seriously within their own generic and historical contexts and reveal an entirely other Dickensian oeuvre: one that has perhaps made Dickens better known to an audience of nonreaders than to those who know the books themselves. Includes 30 previously published journal articles July 2012 Hardback 572 pages 978-1-4094-3094-0 160.00

Dickens and the City


Edited by Jeremy Tambling, University of Manchester, UK
Dickens looks at the city from several aspects and his relationship to cities is part of his modernity and his enduring fascination. This anthology of criticism shows how Dickens thought about, grasped and conceptualised the rapidly expanding and anonymous urban scene and is a major contribution to the study of cities, city culture, modernity, and Dickens. The selection of key previously published articles and essays is accompanied by a comprehensive bibliography of work which scholars can continue to explore. Includes 26 previously published journal articles July 2012 Hardback 586 pages 978-1-4094-3309-5 160.00

Dickens, Sexuality and Gender


Edited by Lillian Nayder, Bates College, USA
This volume of essays examines Dickenss complex representations of sexuality and gender, as well as his use of gender ideologies and sexual and gender differences, over the course of his literary career from his first sketches and early novels to his late works of fiction. The essays provide an introduction to the most recent approaches to Dickenss fiction in addition to those now considered classic, draw on queer theory and also feature a variety of methodologies, ranging across feminist, historicist and psychoanalytic methods of interpretation. Includes 22 previously published journal articles July 2012 Hardback 662 pages 978-1-4094-3095-7 160.00

Dickens and Childhood


Edited by Laura Peters, University of Roehampton, UK

This volume of essays traces the shifting importance given to childhood in Dickens criticism. The essays consider a range of subjects such as the Romantic child, the child and the family, and the child as a vehicle for social criticism, as well as current issues such as empire, race and difference, and death. Written by leading researchers and educators, this selection of previously published articles and book chapters is representative of key developments in this field. Includes 22 previously published journal articles July 2012 Hardback 654 pages 978-1-4094-3041-4 160.00

Dickens and Victorian Print Cultures


Edited by Robert L. Patten, Rice University, USA and University of London, UK
This selection of previously published research articles by internationally renowned scholars places Dickens at the centre of a dynamic and expanding Victorian print world and against a background of a growing and more literate population and an outpouring of print materials. The volume anchors Dickenss attempts to establish better conditions for writers regarding copyright protection, pay, status and recognition, and is of interest to all students and professionals fascinated by the composition, manufacture, finance, formats, pictorializations, sales, advertising and influence of Dickenss writing. Includes 28 previously published journal articles July 2012 Hardback 696 pages 978-1-4094-3093-3 160.00

Global Dickens
Edited by John O. Jordan and Nirshan Perera, both at the University of California, USA
This volume of essays provides a selection of leading contemporary scholarship that situates Dickens in a global perspective. The articles address four main areas: Dickenss reception outside Britain and North America; his intertextual relations with and influence upon writers from different parts of the world; Dickens as traveller; and the presence throughout his fiction and journalism of subjects, including race and empire, that extend beyond the national contexts in which his work is usually considered. Written by leading researchers from diverse countries and cultures, this is an indispensable reference work in the field of Dickens studies. Includes 27 previously published journal articles July 2012 Hardback 636 pages 978-1-4094-3611-9 160.00

Catherine Parisian, University of North Carolina, USA
Ashgate Studies in Publishing History: Manuscript, Print, and Digital

Gothic Topographies
Language, Nation Building and Race
Edited by P .M. Mehtonen, Academy of Finland and University of Tampere, and Matti Savolainen, University of Tampere, Finland
A wonderful collection, impressive in its internationalism and its careful attention to real and symbolic geographies. I do not know of any other collection that considers the Gothic as a global phenomenon in such detailed and rigorous ways. Kelly Hurley, University of Colorado, USA This collection takes up the influence of the Gothic mode in literatures that may be geographically remote from one another but still share related issues of minor languages, nation building, place and race. The essays explore the transgressions and confusion of borders and limits, whether they be linguistic, literary, generic, class-based, gendered or sexual. Experts in the Gothic and those new to the field will appreciate the books commitment to situating Gothic sensibilities in an international context.

Jane Austen and Animals


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.

Catherine Parisians publishing history of Cecilia is an invaluable resource for the study and teaching of Frances Burneys most important novel. Parisians history is an extraordinary work of scholarship, the sort of book a scholar might be expected to produce at the end of a lifetime of study. More is known about the writing, printing, illustrating, distribution, and critical reception of Cecilia than perhaps any other book in the late eighteenth century, making it a key text for the discipline of book history in this period, and Parisian is our vade mecum to the history of that book. Geoffrey Sill, Rutgers University-Camden, USA In her exhaustive publishing history of Frances Burneys Cecilia, Or Memoirs of an Heiress, Parisian mines an extensive archival record that includes portions of the original manuscript, annotated page proofs, legal records relative to its copyright, and an abundance of letters, to chronicle the composition, printing, and publication of Frances Burneys Cecilia from its first edition in 1782 to the present-day Oxford Worlds Classics paperback. Her timely history demonstrates the importance of Cecilia to the art of the novel and the history of the book.

From Archaeology to Spectacle in Victorian Britain


The Case of Assyria, 18451854
Shawn Malley, Bishops University, Canada
[an] intriguing, provocative and well-researched book it will surely be compulsory reading for all those interested in the history of archaeology and museums. Times Literary Supplement In his examination of the excavation of ancient Assyria by Austen Henry Layard, Shawn Malley reveals how, by whom, and for what reasons, the stones of Assyria were deployed during a brief but remarkably intense period of archaeological activity in the mid-nineteenth century.

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.

Henry James, Impressionism, and the Public


Daniel Hannah, Lakehead University, Canada
Focusing on the tendency in impressionism to trouble distinctions between the public and the private, Daniel Hannahs sophisticated and compelling book opens up broad new views of much that makes Henry Jamess writing meaningful and much that has yet to be seen in the problem of Impressionism. Jesse E. Matz, Kenyon College, USA 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.

Byron and the Discourses of History


Carla Pomar, Universit del Piemonte Orientale, Italy
A clearly envisioned and cogently articulated study that will have strong appeal for audiences interested in Byron, in the relationship of the English Romantics to Italian literature, politics, and culture, or in historiography. Peter Graham, Virginia Tech University, USA 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.

George Gissing and the Woman Question


Convention and Dissent
Edited by Christine Huguet and Simon J. James
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. Richard A. Kaye,The CUNY Graduate Centre, Hunter College, USA George Gissing and the Woman Question reads Gissings novels, short stories and personal writings as a crux in European fictions formulations of gender and sexuality. The contributors place Gissing alongside authors as diverse as Paul Bourget, Ella Hepworth Dixon, May Sinclair and Theodore Dreiser, theorizing the ways in which late-Victorian sexual difference is challenged, explored and performed in Gissings work.

Dickens and Benjamin


Moments of Revelation, Fragments of Modernity
Gillian Piggott, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
This is an intelligent, well-researched and meticulously argued investigation of parallels in outlook between Dickens and Benjamin. Avoiding obvious pitfalls of such a project, Piggott is scrupulous in establishing her focus: not on any supposed influence of the one on the other, nor on the development of either writers ideas, but rather on the similarities and differences between the two writers vision of modernity, in particular as seen in their writings on the city. Alert to the fact that the two writers lived and wrote in different centuries, and to the fact that their primary response was to different cities, she nevertheless makes a convincing case for the fundamental congruence of their core ideas. Paul Schlicke, University of Aberdeen, UK Placing the works of Charles Dickens and Walter Benjamin in conversation with one another, Piggott argues that the two writers display a shared vision of modernity. Her analysis of their works shows that both writers demonstrate a decreased confidence in the capacity to experience truth or religious meaning in an increasingly materialist world and both occupy similar positions towards urban modernity and its effect on experience.

Ouida, the pseudonym of Louise Ram (18391908), was one of the most productive and widely read Victorian writers.

Literary Bric--Brac and the Victorians


From Commodities to Oddities
Edited by Jonathon Shears, Keele University, UK and Jen Harrison
Taking up the phenomenon of bric--brac in Victorian culture, this collection advances our understanding of materiality by examining the miscellaneous, moveable and rejected objects often overlooked in the discourses of thing theory. Essays examine writers as different as Lear, Browning, Balzac and Dickens to show how the things that make up Victorian literature can fall in and out of use, become undesignated and abject and evade the familiar categories of commodification.

Persistent Ruskin
Studies in Influence, Assimilation and Effect
Edited by Keith Hanley, Lancaster University, UK and Brian Maidment, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
This enterprising and authoritative collection of essays provides a stimulating overview of Ruskins multiple legacies, challenging readers to think about his wideranging influence in fresh ways. Dinah Birch, University of Liverpool, UK Examining the wide-ranging and abiding implications of Ruskins engagement with his contemporaries and followers into the present, this collection is organised around three related themes. This book studies the dissemination of 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 culture, theatre and design. The volume also studies the extent to which Ruskins work has informed a global network of aesthetic, social and political movements which, to a greater or lesser extent, acknowledge his authority and inspiration.

Romantic Feuds
Transcending the Age of Personality
Kim Wheatley, The College of William and Mary, USA
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
Rooted in the inconceivable and unspeakable event of death, Romantic poetic forms of grief possess a selfquestioning 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 of literary forms than their elegiac tones are confined to the form of poetic elegy.

Romantic Presences in the Twentieth Century


Edited by Mark Sandy, University of Durham, UK
The recovery of formalism within Romantic Studies over the past six or seven years has meant a return to literary form and its transmission over time. This volume promises to revitalize the debate about how Romanticism helped make Modernism, and about why Modernism continues to deny its inheritance. This is the time for it. Anne Janowitz, Queen Mary, University of London, UK Concerned with the intermingled thematic and formal preoccupations of romantic thought and literary practice in works by twentieth-century British, Irish and American artists, this collection examines the complicated legacy of Romanticism in twentieth-century novels, poetry and film. Essays on authors such as Virginia Woolf, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Doris Lessing, Seamus Heaney, William Faulkner and Don DeLillo, show the persistence and variety of the Romantic periods influence on the twentieth-century.

The Victorian Diary


Authorship and Emotional Labour
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.

Records of Girlhood
Volume Two: An Anthology of NineteenthCentury Womens Childhoods
Valerie Sanders, University of Hull, UK

The result is an accessible and varied tapestry of girlhoods that should be of interest to general readers as well as to scholars.

Victorian Women and the Economies of Travel, Translation and Culture, 18301870

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.

Ethics in Culture and Criticism
James Walter Caufield, University of California, USA
Caufield opens the way for a re-examination of Arnolds contributions to literary criticism. His emphasis on the philosophy of pessimism and the key concepts of conduct and renouncement in Arnolds work helps the reader to better understand important issues related to intuition, subjectivity, human nature, and moral judgment. I am pleased to see a new appreciation for Arnolds religious essays, largely ignored by critics today. Clinton Machann, Texas A&M University, USA Opening the way for a re-examination of Matthew Arnolds contributions to ethical criticism, James Walter Caufield emphasises the central role of philosophical pessimism in Arnolds master tropes of culture and conduct. He argues that Arnoldian conduct is grounded in an ethic of renouncement that wholly informs both his poetry and prose and has continuing relevance to much contemporary ethical criticism.

The Literary Imagination from Erasmus Darwin to H.G. Wells


Science, Evolution, and Ecology
Michael R. Page, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, USA
Michael R. Pages new book contributes to important literary discussions. By pointing to Mary Shelleys Frankenstein and Darwins Origin of Species as foundational myths of modern culture, his valuable argument links 19th-century science to imaginative literature and reclaims science fiction as a significant genre. Ashton Nichols, Dickinson College, USA Page argues that Erasmus Darwins call to enlist the imagination under the banner of science began a literary narrative on questions of evolution, ecology and technological progress that would extend from the Romantic through the Victorian periods. Examining a range of writers, including William Wordsworth, Mary Shelley, Charles Kingsley, Samuel Butler and W.H. Hudson, Page shows the synthesis of evolutionary science with the imagination, which reached its pinnacle with the romances of H.G. Wells.

Politics and Genre in the Works of Elizabeth Hamilton, 17561816


Claire Grogan, Bishops University, Canada
In the first book-length study of Elizabeth Hamilton, Grogan addresses a significant gap in scholarship and complicates critical understanding of the Romantic woman writer. Arguing that politically centrist writers have been overlooked, Grogan suggests that situating Hamilton in terms of the Jacobin/anti-Jacobin framework obscures her radical innovations in the deployment of genre. Hamiltons example shows new strategies for uncovering the means by which women writers participated in the revolutionary debate.

In Queer Environmentality, Robert Azzarello combines an environmental/evolutionary emphasis with selected elements of queer theory to re-situate texts by Thoreau, Melville, Cather and Barnes, and the resulting readings are dazzling. In a nuanced and sophisticated analysis, he demonstrates not only the ethical and aesthetic potentials of queer environmentality, but also its historical roots in texts considered canonical to ecocritical and queer scholarship. Catriona Sandilands, York University, Canada Offering a model for meaningful dialogue between queer and environmental studies, Azzarellos book traces a queer-environmental lineage in American Romantic and post-Romantic literature. Azzarellos study treats four American authors Henry David Thoreau, Herman Melville, Willa Cather and Djuna Barnes all of whom problematize conventional notions of the matrix between the human, the natural and the sexual and challenge the assumption that the subject of American environmental literature is essentially heterosexual.

Reforming Trollope
Race, Gender, and Englishness in the Novels of Anthony Trollope
Deborah Denenholz Morse, College of William and Mary, USA
To say that this is the most important work we now have on Anthony Trollope understates its value. Deborah Morse, for some time our most influential Trollope scholar, here gives us a thunderous book, such a remarkable and bold set of readings that we must wonder at how timid we were. Morses new Trollope, now our Trollope, is a reformer of gender, politics (in the largest sense), and get this! race. Morse writes this audacious book with such lucidity, grace, and good-heartedness that it works on us much as a Trollope novel does--working into our minds and beings, not just persuading us but making us new. James R. Kincaid, University of Southern California, USA Trollope the reformer and the reformation of Trollope scholarship in relation to gender, race, and genre are the intertwined subjects of eminent Trollopian Deborah Denenholz Morses radical rethinking of Anthony Trollopes work, particularly the later novels. Morse traces the evolution of Trollopes views on the pastoral genre, modernity, primogeniture, the marriage market, British imperialism and Englands involvement in slavery and the black Atlantic slave trade, showing that Trollope was not the complacent Englishman portrayed by many scholars and historians of the Victorian period.

Nineteenth-Century Literature

SERIES
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. For more information on this series, visit www.ashgate.com/19ctransatlantic

The American Experiment and the Idea of Democracy in British Culture, 17761914
Edited by Ella Dzelzainis, Newcastle University, UK and Ruth Livesey, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
Ranging over several discourses and disciplines, this remarkably well-focused collection should serve as a starting point for anyone interested in the history of British responses to American democracy. 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 intellectual history of Anglo-American relations. The collection spans the period from Independence to the First World War and the essays provide an essential reference point for all interested in the history of the idea of democracy, its political evolution and its perceived cultural consequences.

The Materials of Exchange between Britain and North East America, 17501900
Edited by Daniel Maudlin and Robin Peel, both at University of Plymouth, UK
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. Phillip H. Round, University of Iowa, USA Taking a multidisciplinary approach to the complex cultural exchanges that took place between Britain and America from 1750 to 1900, this collection examines material and visual cultures alongside literary studies. Intended for researchers in literature and in visual and material cultures, this collection challenges singlesubject boundaries by redefining transatlantic studies as the collective examination of the complex and interrelated cultural transactions that crisscrossed the Atlantic through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Race, Romanticism, and the Atlantic


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.

The American Idea of England, 17761840


Transatlantic Writing
Jennifer Clark, University of New England, Australia
In her very readable and broad treatment of American views of England before 1840, Jennifer Clark gives emphasis to the range and diversity of responses which were neither static nor uniform. With an impressive command of transatlantic politics and literature, she makes a compelling case and valuable contribution to an important but curiously understudied topic. Andrew OShaughnessy, University of Virginia, USA Arguing that American colonists who declared their independence in 1776 remained tied to England by both habit and inclination, Clark traces the new Americans struggle to come to terms with their loss of identity as British, and particularly English, citizens. Clarks study shows that any attempt to examine what it meant to be American in the New Nation must be situated within the context of the Anglo-American relationship.

Romantic Readers and Transatlantic Travel


Expeditions and Tours in North America, 17601840
Robin Jarvis, University of the West of England, UK
We knew Romantic readers loved travel writing and were fascinated with North America; Jarviss study gives us a window into how those readers - private individuals, reviewers, and Romantic poets read the eras massive output of books on travel and exploration. His approach combines impressive research with insights from reader response theory and book history. Romantic Readers and Transatlantic Travel is an important contribution to studies of transatlantic Romanticism. Elizabeth A. Bohls, University of Oregon, USA Jarvis addresses a significant gap in modern scholarship on travel writing: its contemporary reception. Drawing on formal reviews, journals, letters, autobiographies, commonplace books and marginalia, Jarvis analyses the impact made by travel books on North America during an era of transatlantic strife. Attentive to the role of the periodical press, his book is also the first serious exploration of private reading experiences of travel literature in the Romantic period.

Transatlantic Sensations
Edited by Jennifer Phegley, John Cyril Barton, and Kristin N. Huston, all at the University of MissouriKansas City, USA, with a Preface by David S. Reynolds
Transatlantic studies and sensationalism are currently vibrant areas in C19th studies. This volume explores their intersection, gathering together an exciting and original selection of essays. With a welcome emphasis on popular culture, the contributors highlight the many ways in which borrowings, serializations, textual piracy and adaptations reflected social and political differences on either side of the Atlantic, and created new channels of communication between English and American reading publics. This is essential reading for those working in the growing field of transatlanticism. Kate Flint, University of Southern California, USA Bringing together sensation writing and transatlantic studies, this collection makes a convincing case for the symbiotic relationship between literary works on both sides of the Atlantic. The evolution of the genre is traced from early sentimental and gothic fiction through works by authors such as Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Wilkie Collins, George Lippard and George Thompson, concluding with a reassessment of realist and domestic fiction in the context of transatlantic sensationalism.

Women and Literary Celebrity in the Nineteenth Century


The Transatlantic Production of Fame and Gender
Brenda R. Weber, Indiana University, USA
Nuanced, insightful, and richly detailed, Brenda Webers study of womens literary celebrity in the nineteenth century offers provocative readings of texts by Elizabeth Gaskell, Fanny Fern, Margaret Oliphant and Elizabeth Keckley, among others. Deftly revealing how Victorian women writers on both sides of the Atlantic navigated the treacherous waters of public life, Webers writing is both witty and erudite, and her book sheds new light on the uneasy intersection of fame and Victorian femininity. Suzanne Raitt, College of William & Mary, USA Focusing on representations of womens literary celebrity in nineteenth-century non-fiction and fiction, Weber examines the transatlantic cultural politics of gender, sex and the body. Looking at discursive patterns and texts by authors like Charlotte Bront, Elizabeth Gaskell, Fanny Fern, Margaret Oliphant and Eliza Potter that feature successful woman writers, Weber argues that discursive representations of the legitimately famous woman used celebrity as a tactic for altering perceptions about femininity and female identity.

The caf as an institutional site has been the subject of renewed interest amongst scholars in the past decade, and its role in the development of art, ideas and culture has been explored in some detail. However, few have investigated the ways in which cafs create a cultural and intellectual space which brings together multiple influences and intellectual practices and shapes the urban settings of which they are a part.

He examines a wide range of print and visual media, including paintings, political prose, anti-war poetry, early photographs and the letters and journals of soldiers and surgeons, 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 at El Paso, USA
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.

In this ground-breaking 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, University of Oxford, 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.

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.

Victorian Conversion Narratives and Reading Communities


Emily Walker Heady, Liberty University, USA
Reading canonical authors such as John Henry Newman, Charles Dickens, Charlotte Bront, George Eliot and Oscar 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.

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.

Nineteenth-Century Literature

SERIES
The History of the Book in the East
Series Editor: Peter Kornicki, Robinson College, University of Cambridge, UK
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.

The History of the Book in East Asia


Edited by Cynthia Brokaw, Brown University, USA and Peter Kornicki, University of Cambridge, UK

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 (18631944) 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. April 2013 Hardback 256 pages 978-1-4094-5763-3 65.00

Women Writers and the Artifacts of Celebrity in the Long Nineteenth Century
Edited by Ann R. Hawkins, Texas Tech University, USA and Maura Ives, Texas A&M University, USA
This immensely interesting and informative volume elegantly maps the ways in which women writers participated in celebrity culture through printed and visual artifacts. In offering probing analyses of the sometimes vexed relationship between celebrity status and critical success for writers whose gender and popularity could occlude recognition of their aesthetic brilliance, this collection makes an essential contribution to our understanding of the literary history of women writers.

William Wordsworth and the Theology of Poverty


Heidi Snow, Principia College, USA
Exploring the relationship between poverty and religion in William Wordsworths poetry, Snow argues that the presumed atheism of Wordsworths youth does not take account of the multifaceted theological perspectives found in his body of work. Snow reconstructs the complex religious landscape in which Wordsworth wrote, complicating our understanding of Wordsworths theological influences and his views on the poor.

Women, Infanticide and the Press, 18221922


News Narratives in England and Australia
Nicola Goc, University of Tasmania, Australia
Goc applies Critical Discourse Analysis to infanticide news in the period 18221922 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.

Women Readers in French Painting 18701890


A Space for the Imagination
Kathryn Brown, Tilburg University, The Netherlands
Browns book is an ambitious and valuable study that illuminates a diverse genre of painting with ample illustration (sixty images, reproduced in black and white) and contributes a nuanced account of the place of the liseuse in visual art as a subject caught between the aspirations of Republican gender politics and a more countercultural vision of readings potentially illicit or subversive possibilities. French Studies The first monograph to examine the depiction of reading women in French art of the early Third Republic, Women Readers in French Painting 18701890 evaluates the pictorial significance of this imagery, its critical reception, and its impact on nineteenth-century notions of femininity and social relations. Artists discussed in the volume range from Manet, Cassatt and Degas, to less familiar figures such as Lavieille, Carrire, Toulmouche and Tissot.

Women, Love, and Commodity Culture in British Romanticism


Daniela Garofalo, The University of Oklahoma, USA
Offering a new understanding of canonical Romanticism, Garofalo argues that Romantic writers critiqued the idea that erotic love enabled one to transcend political and economic realities. William Blake, Lord Byron, Sir Walter Scott, John Keats and Emily Bront engaged with the periods concern with political economy and the nature of desire, challenging stereotypical representations of women consumers and conceiving of womens desire as a force for radical change.
