Diese Studie beschäftigt sich mit dem dramatischen Monolog des Viktorianismus. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf dem narrativen Phänomen des unzuverlässigen Erzählens, das diese besondere Gattung der Lyrik kennzeichnet. Die Autorin überträgt narratologische Ansätze auf die Lyrikanalyse und modifiziert teilweise die Signale für ›unreliable narration‹. Daran anschließend analysiert sie ausgewählte Texte wie Alfred Tennysons »St Simeon Stylites«, Robert Brownings »Porphyria’s Lover«, Augusta Websters »A Castaway« und Elizabeth Barrett Brownings »Bertha in the Lane« hinsichtlich des Einsatzes unzuverlässigen Erzählens. Obwohl die Gattung ein modern erscheinendes Erzählphänomen nutzt und meist subversive, idiosynkratische Figuren pointiert darstellt, erfüllt sie eine durchaus konservative Funktion und dient durch ihre Auseinandersetzung mit den beherrschenden Kulturthemen des Viktorianismus – Religion, Wahnsinn und Kriminalität, Prostitution und Tod – der Stabilisierung des viktorianischen Wertesystems.

This study examines six late Victorian writers--Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Walter Pater, Vernon Lee, Eugene Lee-Hamilton, Theodore Watts-Dunton and Thomas Hardy--to reveal their commitment to a Romantic visionary tradition which surfaces towards the end of the nineteenth century in response to the threat of a growing materialism. Offering readings of both poetry and prose, Second Sight shows the different ways in which late Victorian writers move beyond materiality, though without losing a commitment to it, to explore the mysterious relation between the seen and the unseen.

"Victorian Literature" is a comprehensive and fully annotated anthology with a flexible design that allows teachers and students to pursue traditional or innovative lines of inquiry. Included in this collection are 105 of the period's prose, poetry, drama, and nonfiction writers, including such canonical authors as Tennyson, Arnold, the Brownings, Carlyle, Ruskin, the Rossettis, Wilde, Eliot, and the Brontes. Fifty authors are women. In addition to selections from the major authors of the period, the volume promotes an ideologically and culturally varied view of Victorian society by including women, working-class, colonial, gay and lesbian writers, and dialect poets. These selections offer readers the opportunity to study new voices beyond the canon. There are 5 contextual sections covering the Condition of England; Gender, Women, and Sexuality; Literature and the Arts; Religion and Science; and Empire. These contexts are interdisciplinary in nature and examine the social, cultural, artistic, and historical factors at play during the period. They also contain unexpected sub-sections on topics of recent scholarship, such as environmentalism and animal rights; mass literacy and mass media; sex and sexuality; Victorian childhood; melodrama and comedy; the Irish question; ruling India and the Indian Mutiny; innovations in print culture; and the science of race. The coverage is further expanded with an extensive website for teachers and students that presents additional contextual readings (each with new sub-sections, such as Orientalism, ecclesiastical parties, literature and new technologies, law and the sexual subject), visual materials, audio recordings, maps, chronologies, and thematic indexes. These are fully integrated with the text and include detailed annotations about names, places, events, allusions, and leading ideas. From the canon to its extensions to its contexts, this website is a fresh and exciting introduction to the diversity of the Victorian age.

Shakespeare ist wohl der bekannteste Dramatiker aller Zeiten, doch über sein Leben wissen wir so gut wie nichts. Kein Brief blieb von ihm erhalten, wir kennen nur ein paar dürre Lebensdaten, vereinzelte Schriftsätze aus Prozessen, die er betrieb – und ein überaus nüchternes Testament, in dem er seiner Frau sein zweitbestes Bett vermacht. In seiner hochgelobten Biographie versucht Stephen Greenblatt mit detektivischem Scharfsinn, die Lücken dieser Lebensgeschichte zu füllen und hinter das Geheimnis zu kommen, wie aus einem talentierten Jungen aus einer englischen Kleinstadt der größte Dramatiker aller Zeiten werden konnte, kurz: wie Shakespeare zu Shakespeare wurde.

Das Mädchen mit den grünen Augen

Mit ihrer Liebe zum arrivierten Drehbuchautor Eugene stellt Kate sich den repressiven Konventionen ihres katholischen Umfelds entgegen. Die Diskrepanz zwischen Kates unbefangener Stimme und der harten Realität, die sie umgibt, macht deutlich, mit welch tiefer Empathie O’Brien erzählt; zugleich entsteht gerade aus diesem Kontrast der satirische Biss des Romans. „Das Mädchen mit den grünen Augen“, der zweite Teil der Country-Girls-Trilogie, ist eine zielsichere Kritik an der irischen Gesellschaft der fünfziger Jahre und ein Klassiker der Coming-of-age-Literatur. „Edna O’Brien ist subversiv im besten Sinne: Sie nimmt die Realität und erschafft aus ihr Gerechtigkeit.“ (Colum McCann)
