Description

Ouida was the one of the best known and best-selling authors of the nineteenth century. Informed by unknown or neglected sources in English and Italian, Andrew King’s biography interlaces the story of Ouida’s life with new readings of her works and analyses of Victorian popular culture, the transnational culture industries, and our investment in Ouida as either a disparaged figure of ridicule or as a precursor of an alternative, less oppressive regime.

About the Author

Andrew King is Professor of English Literature and Literary Studies at the University of Greenwich, UK.

About the Series

The Nineteenth Century Series

The Nineteenth Century Series

The Nineteenth Century Series aims to develop and promote new approaches and fresh directions in scholarship and criticism on nineteenth-century literature and culture. The series encourages work which erodes the traditional boundary between Romantic and Victorian studies and welcomes interdisciplinary approaches to the literary, religious, scientific and visual cultures of the period. While British literature and culture are the core subject matter of monographs and collections in the series,  the editors encourage proposals which explore the wider, international contexts of nineteenth-century literature – transatlantic, European and global.  Print culture, including studies in the newspaper and periodical press, book history, life writing and gender studies are particular strengths of this established series as are high quality single author studies.  The series also embraces research in the field of digital humanities. The editors invite proposals from both younger and established scholars in all areas of nineteenth-century literary studies.
