A new handbook just published covering the English novel between 1830 and 1900:
Handbook of the English Novel, 1830–1900
Edited by Martin Middeke and Monika Pietrzak-Franger
De Gruyter
Handbooks of English and American Studies, 9
ISBN: 978-3-11-037641-8
Published: 05 May 2020

Part I of this authoritative handbook offers systematic essays, which deal with major historical, social, philosophical, political, cultural and aesthetic contexts of the English novel between 1830 and 1900. The essays offer a wide scope of aspects such as the Industrial Revolution, religion and secularisation, science, technology, medicine, evolution or the increasing mediatisation of the lifeworld. Part II, then, leads through the work of more than 25 eminent Victorian novelists. Each of these chapters provides both historical and biographical contextualisation, overview, close reading and analysis. They also encourage further research as they look upon the work of the respective authors at issue from the perspectives of cultural and literary theory.
Includes entries on:
Jane Eyre by Adina Sorian
Wuthering Heights by Simon Marsden
Agnes Grey by Joanna Rostek
