This book investigates the dynamic relationships between Gothic impulses/expressions and British literature between the 1880s and 1930s, with a particular focus upon how both modernity (as a set of technological, social, cultural and historical circumstances) and modernism (as a literary movement) stimulate and express relations to place in terms of Gothic ideas and aesthetics. The project draws new links between these areas, and examines the extent to which the period is characterized by a distinctive and coherent set of Gothic impulses and aesthetic manifestations; additionally, it interprets these in the context of the experience and representation of place. The dialectic of modern explorations of both metropolitan and rural place forms a central line of investigation, pursuing the hypothesis that the Gothic is a critically valuable lens for considering these relationships.
Scholarly Milton is a collection of original and previously unpublished essays concerned with the function of scholarship in both the invention and the reception of Milton’s writings in poetry and prose. Following the editors’ introduction to the collection, the eleven essays examine the nature of Milton’s own formidable scholarship and its implications for his prose and poetry. The collection examines “scholarly Milton” the writer as well as subsequent scholars’ historical and theoretical framing of Milton studies as an object of scholarly attention, or “scholarly Milton” as at first an emergent and later an established academic subject. Originally selected from the best essays presented at the 2015 Conference on John Milton in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the essays have been considerably revised and expanded for publication.
This volume aims to place Stoker’s fiction in the context of his life and of his work, and the period in which he lived. As well as being the author of Dracula, he was also Acting Manager of the Lyceum Theatre, a qualified barrister, a theatre reviewer, and for the earliest part of his career a civil servant in Dublin. His work and enthusiasms took him into contact with many other areas of life, including politics and the visual arts, and his voracious appetite for reading gave him an immense breadth of knowledge which informs his novels as well. Divided into three sets of three essays, the major subdivisions of this collection are Professions, Science and Technology, and Politics. In the first three essays, we have discussions of Stoker’s relationship with the legal system, the visual and scenic arts, and his role as Acting Manager at the Lyceum Theatre. The second section on Science has pieces on the use of Utopian and Dystopian technology in Dracula, the importance of the emerging profession of coroner to the same novel, and the importance of ecology to his fiction. The final Section, Politics, details Stoker’s attitudes towards the aristocracy, the frontiersman and global politics, as revealed through his novels.
