Prose by Victorian Women: An Anthology written by Andrea Broomfield

 

Prose by Victorian Women: An Anthology written by Andrea Broomfield

Overview:

The first modern collection of its kind, Prose by Victorian Women includes unabridged essays written by 19th-century Britain's most eminent women intellectuals-the female counterparts to the Victorian men of letters.

Writing on an array of topics, ranging from animal rights, religion, and trade unions to aesthetic theory, education, and literary criticism, Frances Power Cobbe, Clementina Black, Elizabaeth Eastlake, Margaret Oliphant, and others, were as influential commentators as John Ruskin, Thomas Carlyle, John Stuart Mill, and Matthew Arnold.

The majority of essays included in this anthology are reprinted from the Victorian periodicals in which they first appeared. Also included are excerpts from book-length studies, including chapters from Harriet Martineau's classic Society in America (1837), a letter from Isabella Bird Bishop's Six Months Among the Palm Groves, Coral Reefs, andVolcanoes of the Sandwich Islands (1875). There are comprehensive introductions to each writer, head notes which contextualize the literary selections, and a bibliography of each woman's works.
