The politics of writing: Julia Kavanagh, 1824-77

Eileen Fauset

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This is the first full-length study of Julia Kavanagh, a significant but neglected nineteenth century writer
  • Fauset challenges the historically received dismissive attitudes to 'popular romance', and illustrates how Kavanagh has been erroneously sidelined
  • Fauset presents her arguments in a clear, methodical and perspicacious style
  • Her approach will be much appreciated by the academic and general reader alike
  • Fauset convincingly argues that, in Kavanagh's novels, romance is often the pivot around which issues of cultural and sexual politics are examined
