Charlotte Brontë and Victorian psychology by Sally Shuttleworth( Book )
24 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 555 libraries worldwide
"This ground-breaking study successfully challenges the traditional tendency to regard Charlotte Bronte as having existed in a historical vacuum, by setting her work firmly within the context of Victorian psychological debate. Based on extensive local research, using texts ranging from local newspaper copy to the medical tomes in the Reverend Patrick Bronte's library, Sally Shuttleworth explores the interpenetration of economic, social and psychological discourse in the early and mid nineteenth century, and traces the ways in which Charlotte Bronte's texts operate in relation to this complex, often contradictory, discursive framework. Shuttleworth offers a detailed analysis of Bronte's fiction, informed by a new understanding of Victorian constructions of sexuality and insanity, and the operations of medical and psychological surveillance."--Jacket
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë( Book )
19 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 484 libraries worldwide
"Jane Eyre is a novel of passion - of anger, defiance, and of overwhelming desire. No novel, before or since, has caught so precisely the complex emotions of childhood, where feelings of powerlessness can mix with rage, and a bitter sense of injustice. From the early scenes, where Jane is locked in the red room, and learns to defy her aunt, through the oppressive regime of Lowood School, we follow the turbulent swell of Jane's feelings. Her psychological struggles with Rochester, her Byronic employer, and St. John Rivers, her icy cousin, carry through the passionate contradictions of childhood." "Drawing on feminist and post-colonial theory, and Victorian medical writings on the female mind and body, this edition places Jane Eyre firmly within the context of nineteenth-century social and political culture. The text is that of the authoritative Clarendon edition."--Jacket
The mind of the child : child development in literature, science, and medicine, 1840-1900 by Sally Shuttleworth( Book )
17 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 404 libraries worldwide
What is the difference between a lie and a fantasy, when the subject is a child? Moving between literary and scientific texts, Sally Shuttleworth explores a range of fascinating issues that emerge when the inner world of the child becomes, for the first time, the explicit focus of literary and medical attention. Starting in the 1840s, which saw the publication of explorations of child development by Bronte and Dickens, as well as some of the first psychiatric studies of childhood, this groundbreaking book progresses through post-Darwinian considerations of the child's relations to the animal kingdom, to chart the rise of the Child Study Movement of the 1890s. Based on in-depth interdisciplinary research, The Mind of the Child offers detailed readings of novels by Dickens, Meredith, James, Hardy and others, as well as the first overview of the early histories of child psychology and psychiatry. Initial chapters cover issues such as fears and night terrors, imaginary lands, and the precocious child, while later ones look at ideas of child sexuality and adolescence and the relationship between child and monkey. Experiments on babies, the first baby shows, and domestic monkey keeping also feature. Many of our current concerns with reference to childhood are shown to have their parallels in the Victorian age: from the pressures of school examinations, or the problems of adolescence, through to the disturbing issue of child suicide. Childhood, from this period, took on new importance as holding the key to the adult mind

Science serialized : representation of the sciences in nineteenth-century periodicals ( Book )
9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 308 libraries worldwide
"The essays collected in Science serialized examine the variety of ways in which the nineteenth-century periodical press represented science to general and specialised readerships ... Among the subjects discussed are the presentation of botany in women's magazines, the highly public dispute between Charles Darwin and Samuel Butler, the mind-body problem, and energy physics."--Dust-jacket
Two on a tower : a romance by Thomas Hardy( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 231 libraries worldwide
"Lady Constantine breaks all the rules of social decorum when she falls in love with the beautiful youth Swithin St Cleeve, her social inferior and ten years her junior. The tower in question is a monument converted into an astronomical observatory where together the lovers 'sweep the heavens'." "Science and romance are destined to collide, however, as work, ambition and the pressures of the outside world intrude upon the pair. In what Sally Shuttleworth calls 'a drama of oppositions and conflicts', Hardy's story sets male desire against female constancy, and 'describes an arc across the horizon of late nineteenth-century social and cultural concerns: sexuality, class, history, science and religion'."--Jacket
The lifted veil ; Brother Jacob by George Eliot( Book )
4 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
The Lifted Veil (1859) is now one of the most widely read and critically discussed of Eliot's works. - ;'She had believed that my wild poet's passion for her would make me her slave; and that, being her slave, I should execute her will in all things.' The Lifted Veil was first published in Blackwood's Magazine in 1859. A dark fantasy woven from contemporary scientific interest in the physiology of the brain, mesmerism, phrenology and experiments in revification it is Eliot's anatomy of her own moral philsophy - the ideal of imaginative sympathy or the ability to see into others' minds and emotions. Narrated by an egoccentric, morbid young clairvoyant man whose fascination for Bertha Grant lies partly in her obliquity, the story also explores fiction's ability to offer insight into the self, as well as being a remarkable portrait of a misdeveloped artist whose visionary powers merely blight his life. The Lifted Veil is now one of the most widely read and critically discussed of Eliot's works. Published as a companion piece to The Lifted Veil, Brother Jacob is by contrast Eliot's literary homage to Thackeray, a satirical modern fable that draws telling parallels between eating and reading. Yet both stories reveal Eliot's deep engagement with the question of whether there are 'necessary truths' independent of our perception of them and the boundaries of art and the self. Helen Small's introduction casts new light on works which fully deserve to be read alongside Eliot's novels

Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
Anne Bronte's first novel, Agnes Grey, combines an astute dissection of middle-class social behavior and class attitudes with a wonderful study of Victorian responses to young children which has parallels with debates about education that continue to this day. In writing the novel, Bronte drew on her own experiences, and one can trace in the work many of the trials of the Victorian governess, often stranded far from home, and treated with little respect by her employers, yet expected to control and educate her young charges. Agnes Grey looks at childhood from nursery to adolescence, and it also charts the frustrations of romantic love, as Agnes starts to nurse warmer feelings towards the local curate, Mr. Weston. Sally Shuttleworth's fascinating introduction considers the book's fictional and narrative qualities, its relationship with Victorian child-rearing and the responsibilities of parents, and the changing attitudes to the book influenced by modern concerns for children's rights. The new edition includes a revised and updated bibliography as well as revised notes drawing on the latest critical material. Agnes Grey is based on Anne Bronte's own experiences as a governess and is full of interest both for its autobiographical content and its powerful depiction of the plight of the governess in Victorian society. The fascinating introduction considers the book's fictional and narrative qualities and its relationship with Victorian discourses on child-rearing and the responsibilities of parents. It examines changing attitudes to the book influenced by modern concerns for children's rights, which produces more complex responses to Agnes's treatment and description of her pupils. Sally Shuttleworth brings to bear her in-depth knowledge of the Haworth context and childhood in nineteenth-century literature, medicine, and science, and looks at the representation of childhood cruelty in the novel, as well as the novel's portrayal of class and attitudes to women. - Publisher
