 My Victorian Novel

Isobel Armstrong has lamented that the way we teach the Victorian novel, with enthusiasm and delight, is so different from the way we criticize it. I wonder if this is also partially true about the way we really read and experience Victorian novels, if there is a Wemmick-like division between the absorbed and happy reader, cozy and contented in the Castle, and the buttoned-up professor at the lectern or the laptop. Rereading Victorian fiction over time, for our classes or our scholarship, must at some level involve a relaxation of feeling, the evocation of memories, psychic immersion, and moral engagement––alongside critical distance, objectivity, or suspicion.

In her still influential Fantasy and Mimesis: Responses to Reality in Western Literature (1984), Kathryn Hume defines the literary fantastic as any departure from consensus reality, believing that it holds an equally significant position in literary history as mimesis. Rather than being a recent and sometimes academically marginalized genre, fantasy, for Hume, is integral to almost all literature.

William Morris and Trans-Atlantic Radicalism (MLA 2019)

William Morris Society in the United States
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 16, 2018

The WMS is seeking submissions for the following guaranteed session for the 2019 MLA Convention:

Labor unrest and repression in late nineteenth-century Chicago, Paris, and London helped forge internationalist ties that laid the basis for the Second International. William Morris, Walter Crane, and their acolytes were very much a part of this trans-Atlantic radical political, literary, and artistic exchange of ideas. This panel explores the dynamics and consequences of their efforts, doing so in a way that more fully elucidates Morris’s trans-Atlantic influence on socialism’s rise in the West.
