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.

Second Sight

The Visionary Imagination in Late Victorian Literature

This challenging and important study, which examines a range of canonical and less well-known writers, is an innovative reassessment of late Victorian literature in its relation to visionary Romanticism. It 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 surface towards the end of the nineteenth century in response to the threat of growing materialism. Offering detailed and imaginative readings of both poetry and prose, Second Sight shows the different ways in which late Victorian writers move beyond materiality, without losing a commitment to it, to explore the mysterious relation between the seen and the unseen. A major re-evaluation of the post-Romantic visionary imagination, with implications for our understanding of literary modernism, Second Sight will be required reading for scholars interested in the literature of the late Victorian period.
