The Victorian period was a time of rapid cultural change, which resulted in a huge and varied literary output. A New Companion to Victorian Literature and Culture offers experienced guidance to the literature of nineteenth-century Britain and its social and historical context. This revised and expanded edition comprises contributions from over 30 leading scholars who, approaching the Victorian epoch from different positions and traditions, delve into the unruly complexities of the Victorian imagination.

Divided into five parts, this new Companion surveys seven decades of history before examining the key phases in a Victorian life, the leading professions and walks of life, the major literary genres, the way Victorians defined their persons, homes, and national identity, and how recent "neo-Victorian" developments in contemporary culture reconfigure the sense we make of the past today. Important topics such as sexuality, denominational faith, social class, and global empire inform each chapter's approach. Each chapter provides a comprehensive bibliography of established and emerging scholarship.

A Victorian Family As Seen Through The Letters Of Louise Creighton To Her Mother - 1872-1880

RRP $311.99

This collection of 161 letters provides a look at the intimate inner workings of an upper-middle-class Victorian household. Written by a young woman, Louise Creighton, to her mother, the letters start during Louise's honeymoon in Paris, and end in November 1880, just before her mother's death. Louise Creighton was the wife and biographer of Bishop Mandell Creighton, but has also emerged as a moderate Christian feminist in an era when women's causes were usually articulated by more militant voices. The letters also reveal much about the academic and social life in Oxford and later in Northumberland where Louise records her duties as a vicar's wife. Other sections in her letters are descriptions of managing her household of servants, and her social activities.
