Popular Victorian women writers

Kay Boardman and Shirley Jones

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A collection of essays on a diverse group of women writers within the Victorian literary marketplace
  • Considers both well-known authors such as Ellen Wood, Mary Braddon and Rhoda Broughton, and those who are lesser-known today, such as Jessie Fothergill and Eliza Meteyard
  • Sets each author in her biographical and literary context, and provides refreshing insight into their work
  • The essays are accessible enough for students with little or no knowledge of each author, and make a significant contribution to a developing area of interest
  • Ideal for students on Victorian literary, cultural and gender studies courses, as well as their tutors, and scholars of the period
