This five-volume series, British Women’s Writing From Brontë to Bloomsbury, 1840–1940, historically
contextualizes and traces developments in women’s fiction from 1840 to 1940. Critically assessing
both canonical and lesser-known British women’s writing decade by decade, it redefines the landscape
of women’s authorship across a century of dynamic social and cultural change. With each of
its volumes devoted to two decades, the series is wide in scope but historically sharply defined.

Volume 2: 1860s and 1870s continues the series by historically and culturally contextualizing Victorian
women’s writing distinctly within the 1860s and 1870s. Covering a range of fictional approaches,
including short stories, religiously inflected novels, and comic writing the volume’s 16 original essays
consider such developments as the sensation craze, the impact of new technologies, and the career
opportunities opening for women. Centrally, it reassesses key nineteenth-century female authors in
the context in which they first published while also recovering neglected women writers who helped
to shape the literary landscape of the 1860s and 1870s.
