  • Ideology and Philology in H. Rider Haggard's Zulu Romances: Translating
           Zulu Language and Culture
    • Abstract: UNLIKE ALLAN QUATERMAIN, his adventurer hero, the novelist Henry Rider Haggard did not speak Zulu or Sesotho fluently.1 However, Haggard knew the illusion of mastery evoked by a hero who could translate African languages. Quatermain writes in Marie (1912): "As I could speak their language I was more or less in command of this Zulu contingent [of warriors]."2 Quatermain's command of his narrative world depends on his ability to move fluidly between Zulu, Sesotho, "Kukuana," Arabic, Dutch, Portuguese, and French languages. Accordingly, Haggard's hero enacts a fantasy of translational and philological mastery central to imperialist discourse. Translation in late nineteenth-century colonial South Africa functioned as ...

  • Egyptology and Darwinian Evolution in Conan Doyle and H. Rider Haggard:
           The Scientific Imagination
    • Abstract: ALTHOUGH FEW SCIENCES seem to threaten dominant ideas about human identity and spiritual existence as intensely as Darwinian evolution, the theory of natural selection itself actually promotes an extremely nonmaterialistic and imaginative form of scientific inquiry. Charles Darwin's claims in the Origin of Species (1859) extended well beyond empirical confirmation because natural selection requires extreme complexity and it occurs over millions of years. Up until the middle of the twentieth century, evolutionary science's scope remained simply too grand and encompassing to be subject to laboratory experimentation.1 Therefore, among the various acts of mind used in science (hypothesis, theory, induction), Darwin's ...

  • Reading and Misreading the Country House in the Novels of George Gissing:
           The Dangers of Fiction
    • Abstract: GIVEN THE ESTABLISHED CRITICAL PROFILE of George Gissing as one of the foremost late-Victorian authors of London working-class life, Isabel Clarendon (1886) and A Life's Morning (1888), in fact written between The Unclassed (1884) and Demos (1886), might seem peculiarly out of place. Indeed, in 1885 Gissing writes to his brother how George Meredith, then manuscript reader for Chapman and Hall, had advised him against the departure from "low life scenes" into more upper-class or plutocratic settings.1 This frequently cited early reaction to Isabel Clarendon sets the tone for the subsequent readings of the two novels.2 In contrast to the apparent realism of Gissing's early proletarian novels, they have been ...

  • Pastoral and the Work of Writing in John Davidson's Fleet Street Eclogues
    • Abstract: "When they come to die / Good press-men to the country go."1JOHN DAVIDSON'S Fleet Street Eclogues was first published in 1893 (with a second series following in 1896).2 Loosely modeled on Spenser's The Shepheardes Calendar, Davidson's poems feature a group of "doleful, century-end" journalists and would-be poets musing on and arguing about the vicissitudes of the writer and poet in the age of New Journalism and New Grub Street.3 Running from New Year's Day to Christmas Eve, the eclogues, taken as a whole, juxtapose a vehement indictment of an age of mass-market print and the economy that fuels it with the "happy rural note" of pastoral—of "the sights and sounds of the green country," as one critic put it.4This ...

  • T. E. Lawrence Correspondence
    • Abstract: THESE TWO VOLUMES, the latest in the Wilsons' series of T. E. Lawrence correspondence, live up to the high standard set in the previous volumes. Not only are the books beautifully constructed and printed, but they adhere to the highest standards of scholarship. Here we have a monument to Lawrence for which future scholars will remain grateful for as long as Lawrence is studied, which promises to be for a very long time indeed given his preeminence in several fields, including guerrilla warfare, Intelligence work, diplomacy, writing, translation and mechanics, as well as his unique personality.The earlier of these volumes concerns Lawrence's outstanding work on his prose translation of Homer's Odyssey, which took ...

  • The Wide World of the Fin de Siècle
    • Abstract: MICHAEL SALER'S The Fin-de-Siècle World should be considered an essential resource for scholars of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It has many, many strengths and very few shortcomings. The collection serves as a reference to the period and its themes, cultures, and politics; at the same time, it also provides a map for future research possibilities. The forty-five contributors offer new and surprising insights into the fin de siècle, allowing us to see even the more familiar topics in a novel light.Of particular value is a deliberate drawing out of overlapping intersectionalities, wherein no one idea is considered in isolation from others. Coverage of key topics and themes has been ensured, all ... Read More

  • Utopian Literature & Science
    • Abstract: ALTHOUGH NOT NAMED in the title, this rich and erudite book continually circles around the utopian writings of H. G. Wells and his important role in the dual emergence of the modern, dynamic utopia and the rise of the dystopia at the end of the nineteenth century. Patrick Parrinder's book travels far and wide, to seventeenth-century telescopic and microscopic fancies, nineteenth-century British satirical and racial utopias of Morris, Hudson and Bulwer-Lytton, Kafka's "Metamorphosis," Francis Galton's eugenics and J. B. S. Haldane's rejection of negative eugenics, but it always comes back to H. G. Wells.This should not come as a surprise. Parrinder was a crucial figure in rescuing Wells from the opprobrium of ...

  • Hardy & Pastoral Conflict
    • Abstract: INDY CLARK'S BOOK is about conflict. It engages with Thomas Hardy's personal ambivalence related to profession and social class: is he a worker, a writer, or both? It presents the tensions between Hardy's approach to fiction and his approach to poetry. Most importantly, as part of its sustained discussion of the roles economics, imperialism, and war played in the Victorian revival of the pastoral, it presents the "dialectical relationship between literary convention and actual experience." The book's introduction offers a carefully historicized and nuanced engagement with pastoral as a term, and the book's pages offer similarly careful close readings of specific poems, alongside broader, more rapid glances at the ...

  • "Familiar Marriage" & Victorian Fiction
    • Abstract: IN GEORGE MEREDITH'S The Egoist, Clara Middleton is caught in the middle of two men's plans for her future happiness: her father, a clueless, well-meaning clergyman, and her suitor, the ridiculous Sir Willoughby Patterne, whose worship of her is like something out of a horror story. She contemplates her situation with accumulating desperation:[S]he had mused upon liberty as a virgin Goddess––men were out of her thoughts; even the figure of a rescuer, if one dawned in her mind, was more angel than hero. That fair childish maidenliness had ceased. With her body straining in her dragon's grasp, with the savour of loathing, unable to contend, unable to speak aloud, she began to speak to herself, and all the health of ... Read More

  • The New Woman Gothic
    • Abstract: IN DRACULA, there is a moment in Mina Murray's journal in which she briefly alludes to the late-nineteenth-century figure of the New Woman. Embedded in this novel of Gothic horror, Mina makes joking allusions to this stereotype. As she describes a delicious afternoon tea taken with Lucy Westenra, she remarks "I believe we should have shocked the 'New Woman' with our appetites." Going on to mention a recent proposal of marriage made to Lucy, she contemplates how the New Woman of the future might conduct her relationships: "But I suppose the New Woman won't condescend in future to accept; she will do the proposing herself. And a nice job she will make of it, too!" These brief allusions have led to much academic ... Read More

  • Morris & Fortuny
    • Abstract: THIS IS an elegant short book, fairly expensive, evocatively written and beautifully illustrated. It is of interest of course as being written by one of the best-known contemporary British writers who in The Children's Book of 2009 intersected with the world of William Morris. She clearly thinks very highly of Morris and vividly invokes him here, particularly in terms of his houses and his designs of textiles and wallpapers. And she is very present herself as she visits Red House that Morris had Philip Webb build for him in 1859–1860 in Bexleyheath. It is a house with timeless qualities, a promise for the future: houses that were simple and beautiful. So too an older simplicity could be found in Morris's beloved ... Read More

  • Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End
    • Abstract: FORD MADOX HUEFFER (as he then was) joined the British Army in 1915 and in July 1916 was sent to France. On 28 or 29 July 1916, he was blown into the air by a shell, an experience which left him with concussion and temporary severe amnesia, but he subsequently returned to duty and remained in France until March 1917, when he was invalided home. As Max Saunders has pointed out in his definitive biography of Ford, though Ford suffered physical damage to his lungs during this period, the main problem he encountered was the psychological aftereffects of the concussion. Ford's wartime experiences lay behind Parade's End, the great British First World War novel, which was published in four volumes over the next decade: ... Read More

  • D. H. Lawrence & the Complex Nature of Marriage
    • Abstract: D. H. LAWRENCE'S ABIDING INTEREST in the complex nature of marriage derives from his experience both as the child of a troubled marriage and a partner in an even more volatile one. Balbert considers in chronological order eight works, all completed during the last decade of Lawrence's life (1920–1928) each concerned with "the marriage matrix." As Balbert's analyses progress from one fiction to the next, however, he might have just as accurately designated the common denominator "the extra-marital matrix" or the "tawdry triangle" since most of the characters experience erotic satisfaction and "renewal," as Balbert terms it, only outside of the marriage bond.
