  • The Oppositional Aesthetics of Chartist Fictionby Rob Breton

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Redressing a gap in Chartism studies, Rob Breton focuses on the fiction that emerged from the movement, placing it in the context of the Victorian novel and reading it against the works aimed at the middle-class.

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    Addressing a neglected dimension in postcolonial scholarship, Oliver Lovesey examines the figure of the postcolonial intellectual as repeatedly evoked by the fabled troika of Said, Spivak, and Bhabha and by members of the pan-African diaspora such as Cabral, Fanon, and James. Lovesey?s primary focus is Ngũgĩ wa Thiong?o, one of the greatest writers... more...

  • Place and Progress in the Works of Elizabeth Gaskellby Lesa Scholl; Emily Morris

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    Critical assessments of Elizabeth Gaskell have tended to emphasise the regional and provincial aspects of her writing, but the scope of her influence extended across the globe. Building on theories of space and place, the contributors to this collection bring a variety of geographical, industrial, psychological, and spatial perspectives to bear on... more...

  • The Vocation of Evelyn Waughby D. Marcel DeCoste

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    Arguing against the critical commonplace that Evelyn Waugh?s post-war fiction represents a decline in his powers as a writer, D. Marcel DeCoste offers detailed analyses of Waugh's major works from Brideshead Revisited to Unconditional Surrender. Rather than representing an ill-advised departure from his true calling as an iconoclastic satirist, DeCoste... more...

  • Economic Investigations in Twentieth-Century Detective Fictionby Yan Zi-Ling

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 109.95

    In his study of Golden Age and hard-boiled detective fiction from 1890 to 1950, Yan Zi-Ling argues that these two subgenres can be distinguished not only by theme and style, but by the way they structure knowledge, value, and productive labour. Using the detective as a reference point and enactor of socially based interests, Yan shows that Golden Age... more...

  • Space and Narrative in the Nineteenth-Century British Historical Novelby Tom Bragg

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Demonstrating that nineteenth-century historical novelists played their rational, trustworthy narrators against shifting and untrustworthy depictions of space and place, Tom Bragg argues that the result was a flexible form of fiction that could be modified to reflect both the different historical visions of the authors and the changing aesthetic tastes... more...

  • George Eliot, European Novelistby John Rignall

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

  • Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Reprinting and the Embodied Bookby Jessica DeSpain

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Until the Chace Act in 1891, no international copyright law existed between Britain and the United States, which meant publishers were free to edit text, excerpt whole passages, add new illustrations, and substantially redesign a book's appearance. In spite of this ongoing process of transatlantic transformation of texts, the metaphor of the book as... more...
