H.G. Wells was one of the most prolific writers in the English language. He published over one hundred books, yet he is recognized by only two or three of his popular novels including The Time Machine and War of the Worlds. Why has such a well known and widely read author from the nineteenth century almost disappeared from the bookshelves of the twenty-first century? H.G. Wells at the End of His Tether attempts to answer this question and others by examining his work from a nineteenth century perspective.Wells was a controversial figure. He was an avid socialist and a self-proclaimed prophet. He hated the Church and the Monarchy and spent much of his life promoting utopian ideals, world government and other radical concepts that are politically incorrect today. As he watched the First World War tear Europe asunder he wrote The War to End War and created a new label for that infamous conflict. He was a highly vocal anti-war journalist and often frustrated by how little impact he was making on the world. When the Second World War descended on Europe he became despondent as he approached the end of his political and literary tether.

The Damnation Of Harold Frederic

The Damnation of Harold Frederic is a finely honed work of literary criticism. Bennett examines how Frederic both directly and indirectly manipulated his own personal experiences to craft his literary pieces. (His life involved two families: one with his wife, and one with a lover, who eventually was tried for manslaughter in his sensational death.) Her book provides a critical reading of The Damnation of Theron Ware, as well as a close look at his oeuvre, including his final novel, The Market-Place, a pioneering work that paved the way for works of socioeconomic commentary such as Dreiser's Trilogy of Desire and Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Drawing on material previously unavailable to scholars, Bennett engages readers in exploring how an author's private life and public works intersect.

Girls Who Went Wrong

The period 1885 to 1917 saw thousands of American crusaders working hard to “save the fallen women,” but little on the part of American social protest writers. In this first work on the subject, Laura Hapke examines how writers attempted to turn an outcast into a heroine in a literature otherwise known for its puritanical attitude toward the fallen woman. She focuses on how these authors (all male) expressed late-Victorian conflicts about female sexuality. If, as they all maintained, women have an innate preference for chastity, how could they account for the prostitute? Was she a sinner, suggesting the potential waywardness of all women? Or, if she was a victim, what of her “depravity”?

'Cities, nations, civilization, progress-it's all over. That game's up. We're beat.' One of the most important and influential invasion narratives ever written, The War of the Worlds (1897) describes the coming of the Martians, who land in Woking, and make their way remorselessly towards the capital, wreaking chaos, death, and destruction. The novel is closely associated with anxiety about a possible invasion of Great Britain at the turn of the century, and concerns about imperial expansion and its impact, and it drew on the latest astronomical knowledge to imagine a desert planet, Mars, turning to Earth for its future. The Martians are also evolutionarily superior to mankind.
