First published in 2005, this collection of essays brings together British, European and North American literary critics and cultural historians with diverse specialities and interests to demonstrate the range of contemporary perspectives through which George Gissing’s fiction can be viewed. It offers both closely contextualised historical readings and broader cultural and philosophical assessments and engages with a number of themes including: the cultural and social formation of class and gender, social mobility and its unsettling effects on individual and collective identities, the place of writing in emerging mass culture, and the possibility and limits of fiction as critical intervention. This book will be of interest to those studying the works of George Gissing, and 19th century literature more broadly.

Exploring a hitherto neglected field, Writing Place: Mimesis, Subjectivity and Imagination in the Works of George Gissing is the first monograph to consider the works of George Gissing (1857-1903) in light of the ‘spatial turn’. By exploring how objectivity and subjectivity interact in his work, the book asks: what are the risks of looking for the ‘real’ in Gissing’s places? How does the inherent heterogeneity of Gissing’s observation influence the textual recapitulation of place? In addition to examining canonical texts such as The Nether World (1889), New Grub Street (1891), and The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft (1901), the book analyses the lesser-known novels, short stories, journalism and personal writings of Gissing, in the context of modern spatial studies. The book challenges previously biographical and London-centric accounts of Gissing’s representation of space and place by re-examining seemingly innate contemporaneous geographical demarcations such as the north and the south, the city, suburb, and country, Europe and the world, and re-reading Gissing’s places in the contexts of industrialism, ruralism, the city in literature, and travel writing. Through sustained attention to the ambiguities and contradictions rooted in the form and content of his writing, the book concludes that, ultimately, Gissing’s novels undermine spatial dichotomies by emphasising and celebrating the incongruity of seeming certainties

It was the outcome of a long and intimate conversation. Alice Madden, aged nineteen, a plain, shy, gentle-mannered girl, short of stature, and in movement something less than graceful, wore a pleased look as she glanced at her father's face and then turned her eyes across the blue channel to the Welsh hills. She was flattered by the confidence reposed in her, for Dr. Madden, reticent by nature, had never been known to speak in the domestic circle about his pecuniary affairs. He seemed to be the kind of man who would inspire his children with affection: grave but benign, amiably diffident, with a hint of lurking mirthfulness about his eyes and lips. And to-day he was in the best of humours; professional prospects, as he had just explained to Alice, were more encouraging than hitherto; for twenty years he had practised medicine at Clevedon, but with such trifling emolument that the needs of his large family left him scarce a margin over expenditure; now, at the age of forty-nine-it was 1872-he looked forward with a larger hope. Might he not reasonably count on ten or fifteen more years of activity? Clevedon was growing in repute as a seaside resort; new houses were rising; assuredly his practice would continue to extend. 'I don't think girls ought to be troubled about this kind of thing, ' he added apologetically.

Der faszinierende zweite Band des großen, dreiteiligen Familienepos vor der Kulisse des Ersten Weltkrieges England, 1921. Die Bewohner des großen Anwesens Abingdon Hall – von der Herrin des Hauses bis zum Chauffeur – versuchen mit aller Kraft, die bewegte Vergangenheit hinter sich zu lassen. Ein jeder hat große Verluste erlitten in den Jahren des Krieges, doch die Hoffnung auf bessere Zeiten macht es Martin Rilke und seinen Verwandten, der Familie Greville, etwas leichter. Die Ära der Goldenen Zwanziger liegt verheißungsvoll vor ihnen – schillernd, aufregend und tabulos – und für einen flüchtigen Moment scheint es, als sei alles gut ...

Der Klassiker unter den Dickens-Biographien: Forsters Biographie in drei Bänden erschien kurz nach Charles Dickens‘ Tod im Jahre 1870 und wurde schnell zu einem Standardwerk. Es lebt von der engen und langjährigen Freundschaft des Kritikers und Herausgebers John Forster mit dem berühmten Schriftsteller. Ohne literaturwissenschaftliche Pedanterie sieht er das Leben und den Charakter des Verfassers zeitloser Werke wie „Oliver Twist“ oder „A Christmas Carol“. Dabei wechseln sich packende Berichte aus erster Hand mit umfangreichen Auszügen aus dem Briefwechsel der beiden Freunde ab. Und da auch in fast all seinen Briefen seine besondere Meisterschaft des Erzählens zum Tragen kommt, wird jeder, der gerne Dickens liest, auch an dieser Biographie Gefallen finden. Die vorliegende Ausgabe greift auf die souveräne Übersetzung des Philologen Friedrich Althaus (1829-1897) zurück, die denselben Zeitgeist atmet wie das Werk Dickens‘.
