Product description

This five-volume series, British Women's Writing From Bronte to Bloomsbury, 1840-1940, historicallycontextualizes and traces developments in women's fiction from 1840 to 1940. Critically assessingboth canonical and lesser-known British women's writing decade by decade, it redefines the landscapeof women's authorship across a century of dynamic social and cultural change. With each ofits volumes devoted to two decades, the series is wide in scope but historically sharply defined.
Volume 2: 1860s and 1870s continues the series by historically and culturally contextualizing Victorianwomen's writing distinctly within the 1860s and 1870s. Covering a range of fictional approaches,including short stories, religiously inflected novels, and comic writing the volume's 16 original essaysconsider such developments as the sensation craze, the impact of new technologies, and the careeropportunities opening for women. Centrally, it reassesses key nineteenth-century female authors inthe context in which they first published while also recovering neglected women writers who helpedto shape the literary landscape of the 1860s and 1870s.
