Couverture de l’ouvrage Nineteenth-Century American Women's Serial Novels
Nineteenth-Century American Women's Serial Novels explores the prolific careers of four exemplary novelists - E. D. E. N. Southworth, Ann Stephens, Mary Jane Holmes, and Laura Jean Libbey. These commercially successful writers helped to shape the popular tradition of serial magazine fiction by drawing on readers' tastes along with their cultural concerns. Their astonishing productivity led magazine editors and publishers to return to them repeatedly for more serials to be turned into even more novels, even as they reprinted these fictions under new titles. Dale M. Bauer analyzes how serials deployed the repetition of plots and the traumas representing the sources of women's anxieties and pain. Arguing that these novels provided temporary resolutions to the social, economic, and psychological tensions that readers faced, Bauer explains how this otherwise forgotten archive of fiction now offers an extraordinarily expanded range of women's literary effort from the nineteenth to the twentieth century.
Introduction; 1. Why read more Southworth?; 2. Stephens and the serial novel; 3. Women in nineteenth-century prisons; 4. Mary Jane Holmes's 'spooneys', 'crackers', and 'white niggers'; 5. Laura Jean Libbey and sexual transformation; 6. Racial intimacy and women serial writers.
Dale M. Bauer has written about feminism and American women's writing throughout her scholarly career. Her first book published in 1988 charted the narrative strategy of feminist dialogism. She is also the author of Edith Wharton's Brave New Politics (1994) and Sex Expression and American Women Writers, 1860–1940 (2009). Additionally, she has edited two major scholarly collections: The Cambridge Companion to Nineteenth-Century American Women's Writing (Cambridge, 2001) and The Cambridge History of American Women's Literature (Cambridge, 2012).
