These new essays by leading scholars explore nineteenth-century womens writing across a spectrum of genres. The books focus is on womens role in and access to literary culture in the broadest sense, as consumers and interpreters as well as practitioners of that culture. Individual chapters consider women as journalists, editors, translators, scholars, actresses, playwrights, autobiographers, biographers, writers for children and religious writers as well as novelists and poets. The impact of women in the literary marketplace, womens role in public debate, the cultural power of women readers, women writers construction of gender and sexuality, and the formation of a female canon are central concerns in a century which saw the emergence of a mass audience for literature. A unique chronology offers a woman-centred perspective on literary and historical events and there is a guide to further reading.

Joanne Shattock is Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Leicester. Her research interests focus on the nineteenth-century periodical press, nineteenth-century women's writing, book history, life-writing and bibliography. She is President of the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals and holds an Honorary Moser Fellowship at the Humanities Research Institute, University of Keele.
