Our vampires, ourselves by Nina Auerbach( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sometimes bewitchingly erotic, sometimes repellent, sometimes ravenous, vampires embody their societies' fears and forbidden dreams. In this wry, original book, literary critic and vampire enthusiast Nina Auerbach shows how every age embraces the vampire it needs and, at the same time, gets the vampire it deserves."--Jacket
Dracula by Bram Stoker( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was published in 1897, Dracula became one of the many contemporary titles that pitted humans against monsters. Robert Louis Stevenson, Rudyard Kipling, and H.G. Wells, among others, all published in the same genre at about the same time. Yet it is Dracula that readers cannot forget. The text of this Norton Critical Edition is that of the 1897 first edition; it is fully annotated. A rich selection of background and source materials is provided in three areas. "Contexts" includes probably inspirations for Dracula in the earlier works of James Malcolm Rymer and Emily Gerard. Also included are a discussion of Stoker's working notes for the novel and "Dracula's Guest," the original opening chapter to Dracula. "Reviews and Reactions" reprints five early reviews of the novel. "Dramatic and Film Variations" focuses on theater and film adaptations of Dracula, two indications of the novel's unwavering appeal. David J. Skal, Gregory A. Waller, and Nina Auerbach offer their varied perspectives. Checklists of both dramatic and film adaptations are included. "Criticism" collects seven theoretical interpretations of Dracula by Phyllis A. Roth, Carol A. Senf, Franco Moretti, Christopher Craft, Bram Dijsktra, Steven D. Arata, and Talia Schaffer. A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included. -- Back cover

Daphne du Maurier, haunted heiress by Nina Auerbach( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Auerbach's Daphne Du Maurier is the author of sixteen other novels, along with biographies, articles, plays, memoirs, and short stories. Where other readers have become absorbed by Rebecca, Auerbach finds greater fascination in novels such as The Scapegoat, Hungry Hill, and My Cousin Rachel, books whose protagonists are troubled, even murderous, men succumbing to the haunting of previous generations. Du Maurier herself was haunted by her father and grandfather. Living under the shadow of her famous father, Gerald, actor and manager of Wyndham's Theater and creator of the role of Captain Hook in Peter Pan, and of her grandfather George, the popular illustrator and best-selling novelist of Trilby, du Maurier was the torchbearer of a stellar male line
Forbidden journeys : fairy tales and fantasies by Victorian women writers by Nina Auerbach( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many ways themselves restricted to the status of children, Victorian women were less inclined than the men of their time to idealize childhood--and the children's stories they wrote often tended to be darker and wilder than those of their male counter-parts. As the eleven brilliant stories collected here demonstrate, these fairy tales by Victorian women constitute a distinct literary tradition, one startlingly subversive of the society that fostered it. Collected for the first time in one volume, these fairy tales and fantasies are fascinating for more than their social and historical implications: They are extraordinary stories, full of strange delights for readers of any age. From Anne Thackeray Ritchie's adaptations of "The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood" and "Beauty and the Beast," and Jean Ingelow's fantastic novel Mopsa the Fairy to Christina Rossetti's unsettling antifantasies in Speaking Likenesses, these are breathtaking acts of imaginative freedom, by turns amusing, charming, and disturbing. In collecting these works, two of our most distinguished Victorian scholars rescue authors such as Ritchie, Ingelow, Juliana Horatia Ewing, and Mary Louisa Molesworth from undeserved obscurity. At the same time, Auerbach and Knoepflmacher bring to the fore the power of the shorter prose fantasies of more familiar writers like Rossetti, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and E. Nesbit. Five introductory essays by Auerbach and Knoepflmacher place these stories within the fairy-tale tradition and the context of Victorian juvenile and adult fiction. Defining the tales in relation to the Victorian preoccupation with mythmaking, they identify the astringent social satire and literary mockery present in each work. As entertaining as it is enlightening, this anthology ushers readers into a fantasy world of wit, perversity, and wonder

Victorian Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What did the Victorians think of Shakespeare? The twelve essays gathered here offer some answers, through close examination of works by leading nineteenth-century novelists, poets and critics including Dickens, Trollope, Eliot, Tennyson, Browning and Ruskin. Shakespeare provided the Victorians with ways of thinking about the authority of the past, about the emergence of a new mass culture, about the relations between artistic and industrial production, about the nature of creativity, about racial and sexual difference, and about individual and national identity
Victorian Shakespeare by Gail Marshall( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What did the Victorians think of Shakespeare? The twelve essays gathered here offer some answers through close examination of works by leading nineteenth-century novelists, poets and critics including Scott, Dickens, Collins, Trollope, Eliot, James, Tennyson, Browning, Ruskin, the scholar-critic Mary Cowden Clarke and the actor George Vandenhoff. Shakespeare's characters, stories and words turn out to be integral to such public events as the Great Exhibition of 1851, a fund-raising show at the Royal Albert Hall in 1884, and the death of the Poet Laureate in 1892. The conclusion emerging from this volume is that Shakespeare was indispensable to the Victorians. He provided them with ways of thinking about the authority of the past, about the emergence of a new mass culture, about the relations between artistic and industrial production, about the nature of creativity, about memory and mourning, about racial and sexual difference, and about individual and national identity.
