Three Victorians in the New World
51,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A critical examination of the works of three English novelists who visited the United States during the nineteenth century: Frances Trollope, Charles Dickens, and Anthony Trollope. These three produced letters, travel books, and novels, which taken together represent unique commentaries on life during the last century. Utilizing unpublished letters, diaries, and journals of Frances Trollope and Charles Dickens, and collections of letters of Dickens and Anthony Trollope, the study compares their immediate reaction to the scenes and facts of American society with the published travel books, and then with the fictional forms all three subsequently employed in utilizing American scenes or characters.

Imagining Sameness and Difference in Children's...
97,98 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book investigates how cultural sameness and difference has been presented in a variety of forms and genres of children's literature from Denmark, Germany, France, Russia, Britain, and the United States, ranging from English caricatures of the 1780s to dynamic representations of contemporary cosmopolitan childhood. The chapters address different models of presenting foreigners using examples from children's educational prints, dramatic performances, travel narratives, comics, and picture books. Contributors illuminate the ways in which the texts negotiate the tensions between the Enlightenment ideal of internationalism and discrete national or ethnic identities cultivated since the Romantic era, providing examples of ethnocentric cultural perspectives and of cultural relativism, as well as instances where discussions of child reader agency indicate how they might participate eventually in a tolerant transnational community.
