  • The King’s Loose Box: Edward VII as Priapic Prince of Wales
    • Abstract: LEARNING OF THE DEATH of Queen Victoria early in 1901, Winston Churchill, lecturing for rich pickings in Canada as a Boer War celebrity, wrote in youthful sarcasm to his socialite mother, Jennie, who edited a magazine for women, that he understood it was “a great and solemn event.” But would it “revolutionise” the new king’s “way of life”? Would Edward VII, at fifty-nine, become “desperately serious”? Would he become friendly to Lady Churchill, who claimed that she had long spurned his advances? “Will the Keppel be appointed 1st Lady of the Bedchamber?” Winston knew that his mother, an American expatriate still a beauty at forty-eight, had been a sexual adventurer even while married to her late ...

  • T. E. Lawrence’s Seven Pillars of Wisdom and the Erotics of Literary
           History: Straddling Epic
    • Abstract: FEW GENRES in English literary history are more marked by the revolution of modernism than the epic. Epic, around 1900, was chiefly an archaic form, material for antiquarians such as William Morris, Alfred Noyes, and Charles Doughty. By 1922, however, the dominant idea of epic had become more about “making it new” than making it old. For Ezra Pound, James Joyce, and T. S. Eliot it was a polyphonic, fragmentary, encyclopedic genre.1 It was also, in contrast to its reactionary predecessor, an inclusive or cosmopolitan form. Where epic in the nineteenth century was conceived, as Pascale Casanova has suggested, to be a medium for national competition—serving to show the greater antiquity, larger claim to ... Read More

  • Irish Women Freelance Writers and the Popular Press: An Army Beyond
           Literary Circles
    • Abstract: IN MARCH 1905, the Irish Packet (a penny-weekly story paper owned by the Freeman’s Journal) published a short story called “The Lucky Little Leaf” by Haddie McMahon.1 An entirely generic short romance story, it was also shamrock-themed for the annual St. Patrick’s Day double issue of the paper. Stories of this length and type, written by unknown (even anonymous) writers, are recognisable to anyone who researches the popular press of this period. Story papers, women’s magazines and even newspapers published them every day or every week—in the small Irish market alone, at least 50,000 words a week of short and serial fiction were being printed by the early twentieth century, along with countless short nonfiction ...

  • A Leap of Faith: Abbott, Bellamy, Morris, Wells and the Fin-de-Siècle
           Route to Utopia
    • Abstract: AT THE END of A Modern Utopia, H. G. Wells locates the limitations of his vision in the dichotomy between individuality and totality. He apologises: “in that incongruity between great and individual inheres the incompatibility I could not resolve.”1 Such limitations are the perennial problems of any utopian project: how all-encompassing can a community grow while retaining a unity of part and whole? And how can we get to utopia when that leap requires mass cooperation? In the great surge of utopian writing that was produced during the fin de siècle, Edward Bellamy, William Morris and H. G. Wells among others imagined utopias that were global in scale and located in the future. They made a radical shift in utopian ... Read More

  • Forgotten Short Fiction by E. Nesbit and Carmen Sylva: Everything in
           Moderation
    • Abstract: DESPITE PUBLIC RECOGNITION of the idiomatic phrase “everything in moderation,” so-called “moderate” short stories of the fin de siècle have rarely received attention in modern criticism and are most frequently seen as either anticipating the modernist movement or failing to meet its standards of innovation. This article focuses on the adult short fiction of Carmen Sylva (1843–1916) and Edith Nesbit (1858–1924), two writers whose contributions to the genre are often overlooked. Their more moderate approach to writing “short”—that is, writing that is neither overly conservative nor progressive—engages with a fragmented feminism, one that offers a realistic response to marriage and relationships at the end of the ...

  • British Literature & Classical Music
    • Abstract: THE TEACHING OF LITERATURE more often than not is disconnected from the study of music. While not overtly stating that he wants to correct this disconnection, David Deutsch moves toward overcoming it. He shows the clear connection between British literature and classical music as presented in the works of nineteenth- and twentieth- century authors and author-teachers such as Pater and Jowett. Not that music was always regarded as an enlightened educational activity: as Deutsch makes clear, until the mid- to late nineteenth century, in Britain even classical music was often regarded as a negative as well as a positive influence. But Pater’s lectures on Plato and music and the influence of Jowett, whose Sunday ... Read More

  • Conrad & Wells
    • Abstract: IN HIS 1912 MEMOIR A Personal Record Joseph Conrad wrote: “At a time when nothing which is not revolutionary in some way or other can expect to attract much attention I have not been revolutionary in my writings.” Linda Dryden quotes the passage halfway through Joseph Conrad and H. G. Wells: The Fin-de-Siècle Literary Scene as an example of how Conrad chafed against Wells’s expectation that the novel should serve a political agenda (preferably one that matched Wells’s own). The quote might serve equally well, however, as a description of Dryden’s writing. Joseph Conrad and H. G. Wells is not a revolutionary book. It will not radically overhaul our ideas about Wells and Conrad, nor will it redefine modernism. ... Read More

  • Hulme’s “Doubleness”
    • Abstract: IN THE CONCLUSION to T. E. Hulme and the Ideological Politics of Early Modernism, Henry Mead discusses the ways in which Hulme (typically characterized as a critic who influenced Ezra Pound’s Imagism) has been remembered. Noting that the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s record of casualties in World War I (of which Hulme was one) recognizes him as “One of the War Poets,” Mead recounts the other ways in which Hulme has been defined: as an “Imagist,” a “Vorticist,” a “modernist,” and even a “fascist.” For Mead, the recognition of Hulme as a war poet is a “suggestive alternative tag,” opening the door to think about Hulme as a war poet “in a profounder sense, the poet of discord, whose incongruous images ...

  • Conrad Chronology: Second Edition
    • Abstract: THIS WELL ESTABLISHED SERIES fills a crucial gap in the academic market between author biography and interpretive scholarship. Where a biography tells the story of a subject’s life, with the inevitable inflections accorded by the biographer, a chronology presents the basic facts of that life unadorned, reducing it to the bare dates and events. Each volume in Palgrave Macmillan’s Author Chronologies series—whose blossoming range of subjects already extends from Sir Philip Sidney, Christopher Marlowe and John Milton to Samuel Beckett, George Orwell and Harold Pinter—provides the factual details of an author’s life, often allowing for a day-by-day account of the life out of which his or her literature emerges. ...

  • Hardy & Narratological Perspectives
    • Abstract: KEN IRELAND sets himself a daunting task in attempting what Palgrave’s promotional blurb terms “the first book-length study of all of Hardy’s fourteen novels from narratological perspectives.” Its aim is to examine how Hardy’s “development of themes, characters and ideas” across his novel-writing years is “matched by a corresponding development of narrative devices and techniques, and his handling of time” (1). Dealing with fourteen novels in a little over 200 pages, stripped of endnotes, glossary, bibliography and index, is no job for the fainthearted. Ireland addresses his demanding project with bracing assertiveness, buttressed by a formidable statistical base whose calculations are advanced as needed in ... Read More

  • The Modernist Novel Reconsidered
    • Abstract: IN HIS ACKNOWLEDGMENTS, Gregory Castle describes having been “wary” when approached to edit A History of the Modernist Novel. Such wariness would seem well founded; much recent scholarship has seen the borders of modernism as increasingly fluid, complicating efforts to form categories and trace chronologies and influences in a volume of literary history. Castle judiciously abstains from emphasizing individual authors, movements, or “-isms,” instead using themes, problems, and ideas as organizing principles. He meets the heterogeneity of modernist novels head-on, indicating such dialectical relations as those between creative innovation and political reactionism, heightened spiritualism and brutal lived ...

  • A Strange New World of Strangers
    • Abstract: AS THE HUMAN POPULATION in urban centers grew at an unprecedented rate and as technologies emerged for transporting people considerable distances, living among strangers became a new norm during the nineteenth century. Encountering strangers on urban streets, in markets, and in public squares could be an appealing or a repulsive experience, sometimes ambivalently both. This realm of strangers, Gage McWeeny contends in The Comfort of Strangers, provided “the invisible dark matter that constitute[d] the nineteenth-century social universe, a matter that exert[ed] a powerful gravitational effect upon its literature’s sociological imagination.” Contrary to the typical investment in domestic space and individual ...

  • Reading as “the salt of … life” During the First World
           War
    • Abstract: THE NOTION that soldiers have time to read during war is staggering; how, amidst constant assaults on both body and spirit, do they maintain the focus needed to lose themselves in textual worlds? As Reading and the First World War demonstrates, a vast number of those involved in World War I—not only soldiers but also civilians—read avidly. They read many genres—novels, letters, newspapers, poetry, and Bibles—for many reasons. Soldiers in the trenches read “soldier newspapers” bursting with stories about women to distract themselves; convalescent soldiers and prisoners of war read to while away boredom and anxiety; and conscientious objectors read when they had sufficient light in their gloomy prison cells to ...

  • Morley Roberts
    • Abstract: MARKUS NEACEY’S edited collection, Selected Stories of Morley Roberts, brings much needed attention to a short story writer who shrewdly navigated the shifting landscape of late-Victorian and Edwardian publication markets. Between 1887 and 1941, Roberts published approximately 300 short stories, thirty-two novels, 200 articles, three poetry books, two biographies, and five travel books. The sheer volume of work produced by Roberts, not to mention the variety of popular genres he thoroughly worked over as a writer, speaks to the numerous professional opportunities made available by a burgeoning print culture and the wide-ranging tastes of a consumer audience hungry to partake in new, less expensive ...
