  • Ruddy Kipling and His Aunt Judy
    • Abstract: JULIANA HORATIA EWING, known as "Aunt Judy" to her siblings and to those who read the popular nineteenth-century children's publication Aunt Judy's Magazine, was the second of nine children (one died in infancy) whose grandfather was Alexander John Scott, former navy chaplain (Anglican) serving under Admiral Horatio Nelson, the hero of Trafalgar, and the admiral's close friend and private secretary. Both her father and mother were distinguished people. Her father, Alfred Gatty, was an author and the much-loved vicar of Ecclesfield in Yorkshire, a position he held for sixty-four years. Her remarkable mother, Margaret Gatty, edited the magazine of writings for children that she named for her daughter, Aunt Judy's ... Read More

  • Olive Custance: A Poet Crossing Boundaries
    • Abstract: OLIVE CUSTANCE moved easily within important literary movements in the last decade of the nineteenth century, from the English Decadents to the American-French group of Sapphic poets around Natalie Barney. a significant contributor to The Yellow Book and writer of four volumes of poetry, published from 1897 to 1911, she has been referred to as one of the three "principal women poets of the day" (the others being Dollie Radford and Alice Meynell).1 Her work has endured—her poetry was the only one of two samples from women poets included in Karl Beckson's 1982 landmark anthology Aesthetes and Decadents of the 1890s (the other is Michael Field) and she is one of the subjects of a recent academic study of "the lesbian ...

  • The Insurgent Invasion of Anti-Colonial Idols in Late-Victorian
           Literature: Richard Marsh and F. Anstey
    • Abstract: There "is something evil in that accursed image. . . ."1 Voiced by Ronald Campion, the scene in A Fallen Idol is marked by giddy frisson and grim terror as late-nineteenth-century London watches the appearance of the idol transfixed. This fascination with the presence of the Indian (Oriental) idol in Victorian London is a mysterious literary cornucopia that manifests variously in end-of-the-century fiction, perhaps most rivetingly in Richard Marsh's The Goddess: A Demon (1900) and F. Anstey's A Fallen Idol (1886). This article focuses on the cultural tensions unleashed in these novels hailing from the century's last two decades through the central dramatic trope of the invasive colonial idol portrayed as an ...

  • Shaw's "The Emperor and the Little Girl" and the Saint Joan Epilogue
    • Abstract: TOWARD THE CLOSE of the bleak war year of 1915, a charity to aid Belgian refugee children, the Vestiare Marie Josef, solicited contributions for a gift book from authors and artists with recognizable names to attract subscribers. Shaw agreed to cooperate, as was evident from a comment to actor-manager William Faversham, who had asked to re-stage The Devil's Disciple, set in rebellious New England. "I do not recommend it very warmly to you," Shaw wrote. After all it put the floundering British army in a bad light: "If the scene could be changed to Belgium and the villain of the piece made the Kaiser instead of King George, it would be more sympathetic at the present moment."Belgian children lost to their parents in ...

  • Jerome K. Jerome, Masculinity and the Parody of Urban Escape:
           "Sunday-School Slops"
    • Abstract: JEROME K. JEROME'S NOVEL Three Men in a Boat (1889) sees three friends, Harris, George, and J., who, becoming concerned about their health, decide that the only remedy is to take a boating trip out of London and up the Thames. At the start of their journey, they find themselves surrounded by a "small crowd" of shop boys, led by Biggs's boy (Biggs being the local greengrocer), an individual "more than usually villainous in the boy-line."1 Prompted by the suggestion from another youth that the Three Men are clearly "a-going to cross the Atlantic in a small boat," Biggs's boy announces that "they ain't a going to cross the Atlantic . . . they're a-going to find Stanley."2 At the time of Three Men in a Boat's ...

  • T. E. Lawrence Correspondence: VII
    • Abstract: THE WILSONS' seventh volume of Lawrence of Arabia's letters is on the same high level as the first six: excellently annotated and beautifully printed and bound by Castle Hill Press, the Wilsons' own imprint. One expects no less of Jeremy Wilson, the leading Lawrence scholar today, and his wife Nicole, who has co-edited previous volumes. Like previous volumes containing Lawrence's correspondence with George Bernard and Charlotte Shaw, E. M. Forster and F. L. Lucas, and Henry Williamson among others, this volume is especially valuable in a literary sense since Edward Garnett was one of the very best publishers' readers and did a wonderful job of commenting on Lawrence's 1922 text of Seven Pillars of Wisdom. Edward's ... Read More

  • Stoker & the Gothic
    • Abstract: THIS USEFUL COLLECTION of essays interrogates diverse aspects of Bram Stoker's Gothic fictions, their connection with contemporary ideas and personalities, and their afterlives and echoes in other writers' and artists' works. There is, perhaps inevitably, a concentration on Dracula (1896), but there are also some valuable essays on the wider span of Stoker's work, in particular The Jewel of the Seven Stars (1903), The Lady of the Shroud (1909), and his 1893 short story "The Squaw." Like his most famous shape-shifting character, Stoker's imagery remains suggestively open to a host of alternative interpretations. Thus, in this satisfyingly broad mix of essays, Stoker's fiction is read through the lens of colonial ... Read More

  • "Count" Wratislaw: 1890s Poet Who Lived Too Long
    • Abstract: THEODORE WRATISLAW (1871–1933) may not even have made the second eleven of 1890s writers, yet he contributed to the iconic Yellow Book and Savoy. His fLagging reputation afterwards cost him, until now, a biography, a gap effectively and readably redeemed by D. J. Sheppard, Senior Academic Mentor at Oakham School, Rutland.Son of a solicitor in Rugby with aristocratic antecedents in Bohemia, Theodore Count Wratislaw—as he sometimes adopted his rather flimsy claim to a title—had no desire to follow his father in a suffocating small-town law practice. While reluctantly studying law in London he aspired to become a man of letters. A garret in Bloomsbury led him to literary coteries, to the gaudy allure of music halls ... Read More

  • Cambridge Edition: Victory
    • Abstract: WHILE ALL OF THE VOLUMES to appear to date in The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Joseph Conrad have been a great addition to the scholarly community interested in the works of Conrad, it may be that this edition of Victory is the most valuable book yet produced. It has the advantage of many more prepublication documents than most of the other volumes in this edition. More than that, however, the textual history of this volume is far more fraught with difficulty than any other Conrad work of which I am aware. As outlined in the essay on the text, the American serial made many changes, particularly abridgements of the original typescript, in order to make it fit the purpose of Munsey's Magazine of producing entire ...

  • Phosphorescent Modernism
    • Abstract: THE WORD "LATENESS" in this elegant, wide-ranging study has numerous nuanced connotations. Some of the most important ones are decadence, décadisme (Anatole Baju), decline, degeneration, belatedness, lassitude, lastness, eschatology, Spätstil ("late style"), Spätling ("latecomer"), embarrassment (Paul Valéry), hollowing out (Theodor Adorno), epigonism, neurasthenia, cultural exhaustion, fin de siècle, myth (T. S. Eliot), Menschheitsdämmerung ("twilight of humanity"), and even—or rather inevitably—carpe diem.I list these terms and expressions (in no particular order) to provide some idea of the multilingual, multicultural, and multinational flavor of Lateness and Modern European Literature, a work that impresses not ...

  • "Freedom" Is Just Another Word
    • Abstract: WHEN I FIRST READ Exiles in preparation for my Ph.D. comprehensives, my response was much like many of those quoted in this critical edition. I thought it considerably less compelling and not nearly as sophisticated as Joyce's works of fiction. Not long after reading Joyce's only extant play, I saw it performed in 1988 or 1989 at the University of West Florida where I had recently been hired. The part of Richard Rowan was performed by a Professor of Mathematics who was a friend of my husband's. It occurred to me that a math professor was perfectly suited to play the role of a man as calculating as Rowan. I did not care for the character then, and, after reading the play several more times and carefully considering ... Read More

  • Norris on Joyce
    • Abstract: MARGOT NORRIS is one of the foremost James Joyce scholars of her generation. Over the past forty years she has published important volumes on Joyce's Dubliners, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake, as well as still other volumes—Joyce's Web: The Social Unraveling of Modernism, for example—that cast a wider net. And she has enriched the conversation about literary modernism more broadly in numerous additional volumes. In this her most recent work, The Value of James Joyce, Norris considers the entire Joycean corpus (the neglected poetry and drama as well as the famous prose works) and assesses Joyce's achievement, meaning, and impact more broadly than in any of her earlier works. The result is a volume that will benefit ... Read More

  • At the Mercy of Their Clothes: Modernism, the Middlebrow, and British
           Garment Culture by Celia Marshik (review)
    • Abstract: THERE IS MUCH RECENT WORK in modernist studies on the material things that surround the people in texts of the period and this has extended, notably in studies by R. S. Koppen and Katherine Joslin, to that material which surrounds them the most closely: the very clothes on their backs. Celia Marshik's At the Mercy of Their Clothes seeks to demonstrate that our view of garments in early-twentieth-century literature has nevertheless not been nearly suspicious enough. In a work of impressive scholarship, Marshik musters sources from a variety of cultural strata, from extant examples of clothing to cultural ephemera and canonical works of modernism, in order to "trace how categories of clothing mediate—and at the most ...

  • Bringing Back L. T. Meade
    • Abstract: IN OR ABOUT DECEMBER 1890, the first issue of the Strand was published, and the character of commercial British fiction changed. The Strand, under the editorship of George Newnes, quickly developed a reputation as an amusing, not-too-demanding middle-class magazine, full of newsy "tit-bits" and short stories that could be read in a single sitting. Many other imitators sprung up shortly thereafter, aiming to recreate the Strand's success, but none unseated it as the dominant literary periodical of the 1890s. The Strand's specialty was crime fiction. Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories were first published in its pages and, arguably, made the publication's name. Over the next fifty years, H. G.
