The nineteenth-century travel writer cannibalised other modes of literary, geographical and scientific writing, while simultaneously forging experimental and dynamic forms in the struggle to represent the contingent realities of the road. This collection reveals the variety of literary forms and visual media through which travel records were conveyed in the period, bringing together a group of leading researchers from a range of disciplines to explore the relationship between travel writing, visual representation and formal innovation across the long nineteenth century. The first part of the volume combines literary scholarship with art-historical research and explores points of intersection between the print, visual and material culture of travel. The second section investigates how existing literary and historical narratives affected the literary representation of popular sites, and how the material realities of transport impacted upon the formal techniques through which these experiences were represented.

In Above Stairs, get to know the the Douglases, the Pembertons, the Skinners, the Creases, the O'Reillys, the Trutches, the Rithets and the Barnards.

The Circus And Victorian Society

It was during the Victorian era that the circus, whose origins lay in the fairground world, emerged as a commercialized entertainment that we would recognize today. This development was intricately tied to a widespread demand for circus acts by a broad range of classes. In The Circus and Victorian Society, Brenda Assael examines this interest in the circus as an artistic form within the context of a vibrant, and sometimes not so respectable, consumer market. In doing so, she provides not only the first scholarly history of the Victorian circus but also a new view of nineteenth-century popular culture, which has usually been seen as the preserve only of the working class. The Victorian circus ring was a showcase for equestrian battle scenes, Chinese jugglers, clowns, female acrobats, and child performers. In addition to their wondrous qualities, unabashed displays of physical power, and sometimes subversive humor, however, Assael reveals how such acts were also rendered as grotesque, lewd, or dangerous. The consuming public’s desire to see the very kinds of displays that reformers wished to regulate put the circus establishment in a difficult position. Wishing to create a respectable reputation for itself while also functioning as a profitable business, the industry was engaged in a struggle that required the appeasement of both the regulator and the consumer. This conflict informs us not only of the complicated role that the circus played in Victorian society but also provides a unique view into a collective psyche fraught by contradiction and anxiety.
