  • Conrad & Language
    • Abstract: THE FIRST THING people ask me about the work of Joseph Conrad concerns language. “How,” they ask, “could a Pole write such extraordinary novels in English'” Until now, I have been unable to give more than a flippant answer, marveling with them that he wrote so beautifully in his third language. Katherine Isobel Baxter and Robert Hampson’s Conrad and Language suggests I was wrong; English may actually have been Conrad’s sixth language, following Polish, French, Latin, German, and Russian.As the introduction claims, one great strength of this volume is that it adds to our understanding of one central concern in Conrad’s work: the uncertain relationship between language and truth, which remains a vital issue of our ...

  • A History of The War of the Worlds
    • Abstract: HISTORIAN PETER BECK is fascinated by the enduring appeal of H. G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds. Its “afterlife is distinguished by the way in which it has continued to flourish across the world during changing times to access and engage vast new audiences through the story’s adaptation for a wide range of alternative formats.” To better appreciate and celebrate this remarkable afterlife, Beck has undertaken “a biography of The War of the Worlds as a book.”Beck begins with an examination of the influence of place (especially Woking) and of the late nineteenth-century milieu on the formation of this romance. Among other observations, Beck notes that emerging concerns over the vanishing countryside as well as ... Read More

  • Oscar Wilde & Family
    • Abstract: CALLING HER BOOK “a piece of biographical storytelling,” Emer O’Sullivan traces in an accessible style the history of two generations of the Wilde family. The principal figures, besides Oscar, are his parents, Sir William Wilde and Jane Elgee Wilde, his older brother Willie, and his wife Constance, though other persons, including Bosie of course, are treated as well. O’Sullivan has two main intentions. “In many biographies of Oscar Wilde,” O’Sullivan claims, “Jane and William are not given their due. This does not square with the eminence Jane and William enjoyed in Ireland.” One of her aims is to increase our appreciation of Jane and William. Her second intention is to show that this fuller appreciation of Jane ... Read More

  • Women Writers & Ancient Egypt
    • Abstract: MOLLY YOUNGKIN’S British Women Writers and the Reception of Ancient Egypt 1840–1910 constitutes the first extended study of the figure of the female Egyptian—both mortal and divine, ancient and modern—in nineteenth-century women’s writing. Scholars of the period 1840–1910 will be familiar with its better-known male-authored representations of Egyptian femininity which include H. Rider Haggard’s Cleopatra (1889) and “Smith and the Pharaohs” (1920), extensive reporting on Britain’s occupation of Egypt after 1882, and George Bernard Shaw’s play Caesar and Cleopatra (1899). In recent years these texts have been examined—most notably by Bradley Deane in “Mummy Fiction and the Occupation of Egypt: Imperial Striptease” ... Read More

  • Conan Doyle & The Strand
    • Abstract: ONE CANNOT THINK of Sherlock Holmes without Dr. Watson. Equally, one cannot think of Sherlock Holmes without the Strand magazine. Except for the first two Holmes novels, every word of “the canon” published between 1891 and 1927 first appeared in the Strand, a run that began with “A Scandal in Bohemia,” reached its zenith with The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901, and culminated quietly with “The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place,” the fifty-sixth and final tale in the great consulting detective’s career. As Jonathan Cranfield notes in the opening pages of his much-needed study, Holmes and the Strand came of age together, with Conan Doyle’s first contribution appearing a mere sixth months after the magazine’s ...

  • Principles, Privilege and Powerlessness in the Edwardian Prize Book:
           Bridging the Gap Between Two Opposing Worlds
    • Abstract: IN A WORLD of mobile phones, tablets and computers, it is hard to imagine the joy that children once felt when presented with a book as a prize by the head teacher of their school or the vicar of their local church. Yet the prize book, and its associated prize inscription, was a revolutionary concept when it was first introduced to Britain in the mid nineteenth century. By 1901, awarding books as prizes had become standard practice for most schools, Sunday schools and other institutions in Britain and its Empire. While prize books were typically awarded to a person in recognition of an outstanding achievement or contribution, they also served a secondary function of moral education and they were often used by ...

  • Gissing's New Grub Street and the Wider Concerns of Impoverishment
    • Abstract: TRYING TO SURVIVE on an irregular income, Harold Biffen, educated and impoverished author, pawns his belongings four times in the course of New Grub Street. Edwin Reardon, writer and self-declared part of a class of "casual wage-earners," sells books and furniture to second-hand dealers to supplement his earnings.1 Major and minor characters often feel the pang of hunger: Reardon spends time in "semi-starvation"; Biffen is described as a man of "excessive meagreness [that] would all but have qualified him to enter an exhibition in the capacity of living skeleton"; a "hunger-bitten clerk" is seen scribbling job applications; and an unemployed surgeon, Victor, begs for coffee and food at Camden Town Railway Station.2 ...

  • Pater's Appreciations and the Problem of "Feuillet's La Morte"
    • Abstract: A MERE FIVE WEEKS after the first edition of Appreciations, With an Essay on Style appeared on 15 November 1889, George Macmillan wrote Pater to let him know that only 120 copies were left to be sold. We "ought to begin upon the reprint without undue delay," Macmillan wrote, and he asked Pater to let him have by the end of the week any corrections he wanted to make to the next edition.1 Pater took longer than a week. A few months later, Macmillan was surprised to learn that the printers had not yet received the corrected proofs. But by 15 April copies of the second edition were ready for binding, and the book appeared in May 1890, just six months after the publication of the first edition.The most significant ... Read More

  • Sexual Identities and Patriotism in Wartime Britain: Literary No-Man's
           Land
    • Abstract: IN 1918, THE MP NOEL PEMBERTON BILLING published a short editorial piece about the dancer Maud Allan on the front page of his journal, the Vigilante. "The Cult of the Clitoris" alleged that Allan, who had performed the role of Salomé for a private audience, was a lesbian spy, one of "47,000" who were blackmailed by German agents into betraying their country because of their sexuality.1 Allan sued for libel and eventually lost the case. Pemberton Billing, however, got what he wanted: publicity for his conspiracy theories, which were feeding into an already existing moral panic centring on anxieties about sexual and racial degeneracy. The British Empire, it was feared, had already peaked and would follow in the ... Read More

  • The Decadence of the West in Huysmans and Houellebecq: Decadence in the

    • Abstract: IN Individualism, Decadence and Globalization: On the Relationship of Part to Whole, 1859–1920, I returned to a definition of decadence that was formulated by Desiré Nisard first in 1834 and then redeployed by Paul Bourget in 1883, Nietzsche in 1888, and Havelock Ellis at the fin de siècle (1889): decadence resulted when the individuation of parts led to the disintegration of the whole. In Ellis's formulation,The individual is the social cell. In order that the organism should perform its functions with energy it is necessary that the organisms composing it should perform their functions with energy, but with a subordinated energy, and in order that these lesser organisms should themselves perform their functions ...

  • Galsworthy Among the Moderns: Reconsidering a Literary Quarrel
    • Abstract: Of all kinds of human energy, Art is surely the most free, the least parochial; and demands of us an essential tolerance of all its forms. Shall we waste breath and ink in condemnation of artists, because their temperaments are not our own'BEFORE HIS GEORGIAN "RIVALS" were even a blip on the literary radar and well before Ezra Pound would sound the rallying cry of the avant-garde, "Make it New," John Galsworthy predicted in 1911 that the Post-Impressionist Exhibition years would come to be known as the "Third Renaissance."1 Modern artists, he declared, will find in their "voyages of discovery"something new, some fresh way of embellishing life, or of revealing the heart of things. That characteristic of to-day's ... Read More

  • Conrad: Cambridge Edition
    • Abstract: AS WITH THE OTHER VOLUMES in The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Joseph Conrad, Allan H. Simmons, the editor of An Outcast of the Islands, eschews the social text theory of textual editing that argues that a text is a social product, with contributions by the author, publishers, and others involved in the publication such as typesetters, editors, compositors, and so on. Instead, Simmons, like the other volume editors of this edition, wants to recover Conrad’s text in order to produce an edition that best represents Conrad’s work, without the errors of typists and compositors and without changes introduced by editors to correct perceived errors or to conform to publisher house style or editorial preference. To be ... Read More

  • Realism: Fantasy’s Fulfillment
    • Abstract: IN THIS COMPACT and bracingly polemical book, Audrey Jaffe argues that realism is “not fantasy’s alternative but rather its fulfillment”: that we err in presuming that the literary realism of such authors as Dickens, Eliot, Trollope, Collins, and Hardy can even provisionally leads us towards any better understanding of an actually existing Victorian “reality.” Instead, “[r]ealist novels … represent not the real but the desire for it, and in doing so render it desirable for readers as well”; producing “fantasies” of “solidity,” “uniqueness,” “specialness,” “continuity,” and singularity of identity, “affective individualism,” “clear vision,” and other such effects, literary realism conjures a powerful fantasy of ...

  • Finnegans Wake: 17 Chapters, 17 Contributors
    • Abstract: FINNEGANS WAKE has seventeen chapters. Joyce’s Allmaziful Plurabilities constitutes one essay on each of them by seventeen different contributors, one per chapter.
