Another recent scholar book with Brontë-related content:
Alexandra Valint
Ohio University Press
Series: Theory and Interpretation of Narrative
ISBN: 978-0-8142-1463-3

While narrative fracturing, multiplicity, and experimentalism are commonly associated with modernist and postmodern texts, they have largely been understudied in Victorian literature. Narrative Bonds: Multiple Narrators in the Victorian Novel focuses on the centrality of these elements and addresses the proliferation of multiple narrators in Victorian novels. In Narrative Bonds, Alexandra Valint explores the ways in which the Victorian multinarrator form moves toward the unity of vision across characters and provides inclusivity in an era of expanding democratic rights and a growing middle class. Integrating narrative theory, gothic theory, and disability studies with analyses of works by Charles Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson, Wilkie Collins, Emily Brontë, and Bram Stoker, this comprehensive and illuminating study illustrates the significance and impact of the multinarrator structure in Victorian novels.
The book includes the chapter "The Permeable Frame: Gothic Collaboration in Wuthering Heights".
