  • Alice Meynell's Doubled Voices
    • Abstract: AS A YOUNG WOMAN, Alice Meynell viewed her role as a woman poet with skepticism. In part, her ambivalence arose from a sense that nineteenth-century lyric traditions had little place for her. As Linda Peterson observes, Meynell found herself drawn to two lyric traditions, that of Sapphic women poets and that of Romantic nature poets, yet "when she published Preludes, she could not locate her place within these traditions, nor foresee their continuation in modern English literature."1 Meynell's uncertainty about her endeavors as a poet gives both thematic and formal shape to her poetry, accounting for some of its elusiveness. As Peterson shows, Meynell avoids affiliating with either lyric tradition, usually by ... Read More

  • Sherlock Holmes, Addiction, and the Price of Enlightenment: The Case of a
           Cautionary Tale
    • Abstract: Narcotic intoxication, in which the euphoric suspension of the self is expiated by deathlike sleep, is one of the oldest social transactions mediating between self-preservation and self-annihilation, an attempt by the self to survive itself. The fear of losing the self, and suspending with it the boundary between oneself and other life, the aversion to death and destruction, is twinned with a promise of joy which has threatened civilization at every moment."My mind," he said, "rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. I can dispense then with artificial stimulants."ADORNO AND HORKHEIMER famously ... Read More

    • Abstract: William Stainton Moses ("M. A. Oxon.") Spirit Teachings, 1883, Memorial Edition London: London Spiritualist Alliance, 1894Courtesy of Trinity College DublinWILLIAM STAINTON MOSES (Fig. 1) is well known within the Spiritualist community, not only for his books Spirit Identity (1879) and Spirit Teachings (1883) but also the many pamphlets and articles he wrote under the name "M. A. (Oxon.)."1 Arthur Conan Doyle, the best known late-Victorian literary author to engage Spiritualism with few reservations, featured Stainton Moses as one of four "great mediums" of the period in his 1926 book The History of Spiritualism. Referencing Stainton Moses as an Anglican clergyman and a medium who used automatic writing, Conan ... Read More

  • Oscar Wilde's Imaginary "Portrait of Mr. W. H."
    • Abstract: IN 1893, CHARLES RICKETTS produced a painting for an expanded version of Oscar Wilde's "The Portrait of Mr. W. H."1 The painting, which would serve as the frontispiece, recreated the forged painting of the titular Mr. W. H., or Willie Hughes, a boy-actor and supposed dedicatee to and inspiration for William Shakespeare's sonnets.2 The forged painting remains central not only to understanding "The Portrait of Mr. W. H.," but also its form.3 In the story the painting undermines the very theory it seeks to prove. Not only is it a piece of false historical evidence, it is also a logical contradiction. The men in the story claim that the sonnets corroborate the painting's existence, but it contains the dedication page ... Read More

  • Ghostly Sensations in Walter de la Mare's Texts: Reading the Body as a
           Haunted House
    • Abstract: "What are we all but ghosts—of something' And who's telling this story for you, pray, but your ghost of me'"1THIS IS WHAT Walter de la Mare's narrator says to his fellow characters in a short story called "Pretty Poll," first published in 1925 in one of the dominant literary magazines of the period, the London Mercury. It portrays a man, the narrator's acquaintance, who becomes obsessed with, or even possessed by, "the ghost of a voice": an otherworldly voice like a seraph's that issues from a parrot he had bought at a London market. He is drawn by a "kind of call-note," "some odd nondescript slight sound or other" that seemed to have come out of its cage.2 The ethereal voice eerily contrasts with the other demonic ... Read More

  • Wilde's Historical Criticism Notebook
    • Abstract: VERY FEW POSTGRADUATES would welcome an in-depth study of a notebook they used to record research sources and thoughts prior to preparing the first draft of an important essay. Such a document would likely be a scrappy affair: sketchy doodles mingled with paraphrases and half-quotations; a few ideas or themes jotted down, perhaps haphazardly; scattered book, chapter and page references; an address mentioned by someone that had meaning on the day, but long forgotten; and, if the work was going really slowly and inspiration was truly at a standstill, then perhaps a few efforts at practising one's signature in a mature but quirkily arresting form. This new volume, a transcription and edition of Oscar Wilde's ... Read More

  • Failure & Queer Masculinity From Wilde to Wilfred Owen
    • Abstract: IN HIS CONTRIBUTION to Palgrave's series, Studies in Nineteenth-Century Writing and Culture, James Campbell pursues with considerable success an ambitious speculative argument concerning how Oscar Wilde conceived of his own sexuality (by contrast with the currently prevalent object-oriented thinking about homosexuality) and how his self-conception influenced Wilfred Owen. His highly suggestive, well-written book deserves the attention of scholars writing on Wilde, on queer theory, on the poetry of World War I, and on military masculinity. Objecting effectively to characterizations of Wilde as a homosexual in the way the term is often used today, Campbell chooses the word "queer" as an alternative to designate ... Read More

  • Fin-de-Siècle 4th Dimension
    • Abstract: WHEN ALBERT EINSTEIN confirmed for physics the fourth dimension of space-time in 1919, he vindicated an idea that had served as a powerful metaphor for writers since the 1870s. The fourth dimension, a hypothetical space that exists beyond length, area, and volume and that is usually figured as time, has been the inspiration for countless science fictions and mathematical thought experiments in the past 150 years. This concept had tremendous impact on nineteenth-century Anglo-American novelists Henry James, Olive Schreiner, and H. G. Wells as well as intellectuals Karl Pearson, Havelock Ellis, and William James. Building on studies of space and the fourth dimension by Linda Dalrymple Henderson and Alice Jenkins, in ... Read More

  • OUP's Modern Irish Theatre
    • Abstract: THE OXFORD HANDBOOK of Modern Irish Theatre, edited by Nicholas Grene and Chris Morash, is the most comprehensive single-volume reference text on its subject yet published. Forty-one authors in all, many of them leading scholars in the field, cover the history of the Irish stage from Dion Boucicault's mid-nineteenth-century melodramas to new work staged at the Abbey Theatre as recently as 2014. Particularly impressive is the volume's rich diversity of approaches and foci, from key playwrights and plays to key theatre companies and festivals; to key productions, actors, and directors; to such significant issues as national identity and gender equity as these relate to Irish drama. At three times the length of the ... Read More

  • Decadent Textualities
    • Abstract: IN THIS COMPELLING and thought-provoking book, Marion Thain charts late-nineteenth-century lyric poetry's response to "modernity before modernism." Addressing the sometimes critical neglect of the closing decades of the nineteenth century in histories of the lyric and its modernization, The Lyric Poem and Aestheticism explores the relation between the lyric genre and "cultural" modernity in the late nineteenth century through a careful consideration of poetic form, particularly the revival of strict, often antiquated, verse forms that are a distinctive feature of the period. Cultural modernity for Thain designates a nexus of late-nineteenth-century contexts which are the outgrowth of a process of urbanization and ... Read More

  • Argot & Image: World War I
    • Abstract: A PRECIOUS BOOK ON MY SHELVES, surviving many relocations and downsizings of my library, is The Long Trail. What the British Soldier Sang and Said in 1914–1918. First published by Eric Partridge in 1930, augmented further in subsequent editions, and updated by John Brophy in 1965, it is the product of two wartime volunteers. Frederic Winkowski's handsomely bound and produced Trench Talk/ Trench Life, illustrated graphically and cleverly by him from period images now beyond copyright, does not refer anywhere to Partridge and Brophy.Although Winkowski's attractive and informative book, the latest of many he has illustrated, is subtitled A Beginner's Guide to World War One, and covers soldier argot from France and ...

  • Holmes in Context
    • Abstract: IF FANS of Sherlock Holmes were asked to describe the Great Detective, no doubt most would reply that he is a genius, an investigative scientist who makes brilliant deductions. In short, Holmes often is perceived as infallible and smarter than other mortals (with the exception of brother Mycroft). Yet Sherlock Holmes in Context analyzes why these expected characteristics and descriptions are only the surface and Holmes is more flawed than his fans may want to think. As chapter authors illustrate, Arthur Conan Doyle's and Sherlock television series co-creators Steven Moffat's and Mark Gatiss's limitations and preferences have resulted in a less-than-perfect fictional world. Nevertheless, Holmes continues to be ... Read More

  • Gothic Tales of Conan Doyle
    • Abstract: IN HIS INTRODUCTION to this volume, Darryl Jones opens with a bold claim: "Arthur Conan Doyle is the greatest genre writer Britain has ever produced." Quick to note Conan Doyle's status as a "hyper-successful crime writer and a [successful but] somewhat frustrated historical novelist," Jones reminds us as well that Conan Doyle ranks as "a great writer of imperial adventure fiction" whose boxing stories have also made a "distinguished contribution to sporting fiction." As for the gothic, Conan Doyle wrote his tales during the height of the genre's popularity in the periodical press. Returning to the genre time and again throughout his long career, Conan Doyle embraced the gothic with "great enthusiasm," producing a ... Read More

  • Victorian Textual Subversion
    • Abstract: WHEN THINKING of subversive strategies in Victorian writing, late-century authors such as Shaw and Wilde or "dangerous" movements like Decadence, Aestheticism or French Impressionism spring to mind. However, Kenneth Womack and James M. Decker's collection of essays focuses on canonical texts and incidents of "intentional" and "unintentional" subversive writing. In examining Victorian literary cultures the volume's aim is to deconstruct or support accepted interpretations of so-called "mainstream" texts such as Dracula, Jane Eyre, Middlemarch, and stories on Sherlock Holmes. It features leading critical voices Nancy Henry, Julian Wolfreys, Ira Nadel, Joseph Wiesenfarth, and William Baker, among others, as they ... Read More
