Description : During the later eighteenth century, changes in the meaning and status of literature left popular sentimental novels stranded on the margins of literary history. While critics no longer dismiss or ignore these works, recent reassessments have emphasized their interventions in various political and cultural debates rather than their literary significance. Sentimental Memorials, by contrast, argues that sentimental novels gave the women who wrote them a means of clarifying, protesting, and finally memorializing the historical conditions under which they wrote. As women writers successfully navigated the professional marketplace but struggled to position their works among more lasting literary monuments, their novels reflect on what the elevation of literature would mean for women's literary reputations. Drawing together the history of the novel, women's literary history, and book history, Melissa Sodeman revisits the critical frameworks through which we have understood the history of literature. Novels by Sophia Lee, Ann Radcliffe, Charlotte Smith, and Mary Robinson, she argues, offer ways of rethinking some of the signal literary developments of this period, from emerging notions of genius and originality to the rise of an English canon. And in Sodeman's analysis, novels long seen as insufficiently literary acquire formal and self-historicizing importance.

Description : For a period of over seventy years after the 1917 revolutions in Russia, talking about the past, either political or personal, became dangerous. The new policy of glasnost at the end of the 1980s resulted in a flood of reminiscence, almost nightly on television and more formally collected by new Russian oral history groups and western researchers. This book is a fascinating collection of life stories and family history interview material collected by the editors and two Russian groups of interviewers.

Description : This essay collection focuses on a continuous tradition of labouring-class poetics, from burns in the eighteenth century to the mid-late century Victorian dialect poets who saw themselves, and were seen as, his direct heirs. It speaks to recent scholarly interest in and recovery of labouring-class writing from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. By focusing on how labouring-class poets constructed themselves and were constructed by critics as part of a 'canon', how they situated their work in relation to peers and contemporaries, as well as more established poets from their own and earlier periods, the essays here highlight the complexities of labouring-class poetic identities and practices across this period. The poets and critics discussed, coming from diverse backgrounds in terms of regional idntity, level of education, and involvement in established literary culture, complicate our understanding of what labouring-class poets might do and might achieve.
