Paul Fox

In recent years there has been a growing critical interest in the literary detective, and a number of recent studies have examined the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century sleuth from a variety of theoretical perspectives: Foucauldian, feminist, post-colonial and post-structuralist. Cultural historians examine the period and the detective in terms of empire, gender, social authority and scientific developments in criminology. Little is said of the relationship between late Victorian and Edwardian detective fiction in terms of style, the art of detection and the question of contemporary aesthetic theory.

Contributions are invited for a proposed collection of essays on Victorian women poets and marriage with
the working title Victorian Women Poets and the Problem of Marriage. Victorian female poets�
perspectives on the institution of marriage and on the problem of balancing the demands of marriage and
the artist�s life are important but have not been adequately explored. Of course, Elizabeth Barrett
Browning certainly raises precisely these issues in Aurora Leigh, but many other female poets of the
nineteenth century concerned themselves with these same issues and resolved them in different ways,
sometimes choosing not to marry (Christina Rossetti and Adelaide Proctor), sometimes marrying with
