Nineteenth-century women poets : an Oxford anthology by Isobel Armstrong( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 963 libraries worldwide
Nineteenth-Century Women Poets is a major new anthology, selecting widely from writings produced in a period that has traditionally been associated with relatively few eminent female poets. Opening with Anna Laetitia Barbauld's petition to William Wilberforce and ending with the myth-making Irish writers of the Celtic revival, Nineteenth-Century Women Poets rediscovers rich and diverse female traditions. The anthology presents the work of over one hundred women writers. Besides featuring distinguished middle-class poets such as Felicia Hemans, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and Christina Rossetti, the collection presents work by authors such as Maria Jane Jewsbury, Augusta Webster, and Michael Field, whose significance is only now becoming apparent. It achieves range and depth by reprinting poems by working-class, colonial, and political poets, in addition to very substantial selections from the work of major figures. The collection draws on first editions wherever possible

Forster, James Baldwin, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Audre Lourde, this wide-ranging book demonstrates how literature has been one of the few cultural spaces in which sexual outsiders have been able to explore forbidden desires.From the humiliating trials of Oscar Wilde to the appalling stigmatisation of people living with AIDS, Sexual Sameness reveals the

This New Casebook includes some of the most incisive and searching critical explorations of poetry by Victorian women.

Effeminate England : homoerotic writing after 1885 by Joseph Bristow( Book )
14 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 480 libraries worldwide
In Effeminate England, Joseph Bristow explores the legacy of effeminacy in homoerotic literature that began more than a century ago with the 1885 Labouchere Amendment criminalizing male homosexual contact and Oscar Wilde's subsequent incarceration. This broad overview looks into the century that followed these defining moments in the history of gay literature, demonstrating how the effeminate behavior that came to be connected so solidly with male homosexual identity has manifested itself in the literature of gay male writers in England. Effeminate England focuses closely on the works and lives of several prominent British literary figures of the past century, including E.M. Forster, John Addington Symonds, and Quentin Crisp. In a concluding section, Bristow evaluates the impact of the AIDS epidemic on gay men's writing and offers a thoughtful, original reading of Alan Hollinghurst's highly regarded recent novel, The Swimming Pool Library

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 400 libraries worldwide
The picture of Dorian Gray : an annotated, uncensored edition by Oscar Wilde( Book )
21 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
Spellbound before his own portrait, Dorian Gray utters a fateful wish. In exchange for eternal youth he gives his soul, to be corrupted by the malign influence of his mentor, the aesthete and hedonist Lord Henry Wotton. The novel was met with moral outrage by contemporary critics who, dazzled perhaps by Wilde's brilliant style, may have confused the author with his creation, Lord Henry, to whom even Dorian protests, 'You cut life to pieces with your epigrams.'. Encouraged by Lord Henry to substitute pleasure for goodness and art for reality, Dorian tries to watch impassively as he brings misery and death to those who love him. But the picture is watching him, and, made hideous by the marks of sin, it confronts Dorian with the reflection of his fall from grace, the silent bearer of what is in effect a devastating moral judgement

Wilde writings : contextual conditions ( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 288 libraries worldwide
"Wilde Writings brings together research by established and emerging scholars, some of whom draw on unpublished archival material, and all of whom have something new and enlightening to say about Wilde. The collection provides fresh insights into critical debates about Wilde and effeminacy, masochism, and Christian theology, and also draws attention to significant problems in the textual editing of his writings, his debt to the 'aesthetic' fiction of the novelist Ouida, and the popularity of his drama in twentieth-century China."--Jacket
The Victorian poet : poetics and persona by Joseph Bristow( Book )
15 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 284 libraries worldwide
The practice of poetry in the Victorian period was characterised by an extreme diversity of styles, preoccupations and subject-matter. This anthology attempts to draw out some of the main focuses of interest in the Victorian poet. No Victorian poet produced an overall theory of poetry, yet all accepted it as a natural vehicle of expression, and for some subjects, in particular sexuality, the only literary mode. Indeed, the sexual question was made even more acute by the sudden phenomenon of the ‘poetess’, and the relation of poetry to gender raised interesting new critical questions. At the same time, the cultural role of the poet came under increasing debate: Victorian poetry was the first contemporary poetry to be studied. This selection of central texts illustrates these pressures on the Victorian practice of poetry, and the introductory remarks suggest ways in which theory can be related to the understanding key poems themselves

"The most significant resource for any researcher wishing to understand the finer details of Oscar Wilde's remarkable career, the "Oscar Wilde and His Circle" archive at the University of California, Los Angeles houses the world's largest collection of materials relating to the life and work of the gifted Irish writer. Wilde Discoveries brings together thirteen studies based on research done in this archive that span the course of Wilde's work and shed light on previously neglected aspects of his lively and varied professional and personal life.
