From the gothic fantasies of Walpole’s Otranto to post-modern takes on the country house by Kazuo Ishiguro and Ian McEwan, Phyllis Richardson guides us on a tour through buildings real and imagined to examine how authors’ personal experiences helped to shape the homes that have become icons of English literature. We encounter Jane Austen drinking ‘too much wine’ in the lavish ballroom of a Hampshire manor, discover how Virginia Woolf’s love of Talland House at St Ives is palpable in To the Lighthouse, and find Evelyn Waugh remembering Madresfield Court as he plots Charles Ryder’s return to Brideshead. Drawing on historical sources, biographies, letters, diaries and the novels themselves, House of Fiction opens the doors to these celebrated houses, while offering candid glimpses of the writers who brought them to life.

“Elon powerfully evokes the obscurity of the past and its hold on the present as we stumble through revelation after revelation with Yoel. As we accompany him on his journey…we share in his loss, surprise, and grief, right up to the novel’s shocking conclusion.” —The New York Times Book Review In the tradition of The Invisible Bridge and The Weight of Ink, “a vibrant, page-turning family mystery” (Jennifer Cody Epstein, author of Wunderland) about a writer who discovers the truth about his mother’s wartime years in Amsterdam, unearthing a shocking secret that becomes the subject of his magnum opus. Renowned author Yoel Blum reluctantly agrees to visit his birthplace of Amsterdam to promote his books, despite promising his late mother that he would never return to that city. While touring the Jewish Historical Museum with his wife, Yoel stumbles upon footage portraying prewar Dutch Jewry and is astonished to see the youthful face of his beloved mother staring back at him, posing with his father, his older sister…and an infant he doesn’t recognize. This unsettling discovery launches him into a fervent search for the truth, shining a light on Amsterdam’s dark wartime history—the underground networks that hid Jewish children away from danger and those who betrayed their own for the sake of survival. The deeper into the past Yoel digs up, the better he understands his mother’s silence, and the more urgent the question that has unconsciously haunted him for a lifetime—Who am I?—becomes. Part family mystery, part wartime drama, House on Endless Waters is “a rewarding meditation on survival” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) and a “deeply immersive achievement that brings to life stories that must never be forgotten” (USA TODAY).

»Houses, Secrets, and the Closet« investigates the literary production of masculinities and their relation to secrets and sexualities in 18th and 19th century fiction. It focusses on close readings of Gothic fiction, Sensation Novels, and tales by Horace Walpole, Ann Radcliffe, William Godwin, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Wilkie Collins, and Henry James. The study approaches these texts through the lens of domestic space, gender, knowledge, and power. This approach serves to investigate the cultural roots of the 'closet' - the male homosexual secret - which reveals a more general notion of male secrecy in modern society. The study thus contributes to a better understanding of the cultural history of masculinities and sexualities.

"The Head of the House of Coombe" – Lord Coombe is considered to be the best-dressed man in London. During one of his social forays, he meets a selfish young woman named 'Feather' with the face of an angel and he slowly drifts into her circle. Feather has a daughter named Robin, of whom she takes little notice. Robin hates Coombe because he separates her from her only friend, a little boy named Donal. Lord Coombe, however, grows fond of Robin and secures her a bright future, but only one person knows the secret of Coombe's determination to watch over her. "Robin" is a sequel to The Head of the House of Coombe. It is the eve of the Great War and British soldiers are leaving to fight the Kaiser. Robin and Donal are destined to find each other again after being parted after their first meeting as children about 15 years earlier. Their love blossoms, but now they have to part again, as Donal is the prime cannon fodder and leaves off to war. After some time, the word comes that Donal is missing and presumed dead, leaving Robin shattered, with a child on the way.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Trier, 25 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Die vorliegende Arbeit befasst sich mit dem ersten großen Roman des aus Trinidad stammenden, in England lebenden Literaturnobelpreisträgers Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul, A House for Mr Biswas. Naipaul schildert aus der Erinnerung den Lebensweg seines eigenen Vaters im spätkolonialen Trinidad, der gekennzeichnet ist vom Kampf um Unabhängigkeit und Eigenständigkeit, von der Suche nach Orientierung und einer gültigen Ordnung in einer von gesellschaftlichen Umwälzungen geprägten Umgebung. Biswas' individualistische Suche spielt sich ab vor dem Hintergrund einer traditionellen hinduistischen Großfamilie. Das einzigartige gesellschaftliche Gefüge der Westindischen Inseln in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts und insbesondere das Vorhandensein einer zahlenmäßig beträchtlichen indischen Minderheit bedarf zunächst einer knappen geschichtlichen Herleitung. Die Strukturen und Ordnungsprinzipien der indischen Gesellschaftsgruppe – und die Entwicklungen, denen diese unterworfen sind – werden dann anhand der Tulsis, der Großfamilie, in die Biswas einheiratet, näher beleuchtet. Im Anschluss daran folgt eine Auseinandersetzung mit Biswas selbst. Zum besseren Verständnis seines Charakters erfolgt zunächst eine Untersuchung seines eigenen familiären Hintergrunds. Dieser bildet eine Erklärungsgrundlage für Biswas' Orientierungsversuche. Verschiedene Orientierungsangebote, die sich ihm im Laufe seines Lebens eröffnen, werden auf ihre Gültigkeit für Biswas hin untersucht. Abschließend wird neben dem Versuch einer Klärung der Ausgangsfrage – konnte Biswas' Sehnsucht nach Ordnung gestillt werden? – auch den Besonderheiten des Autors Naipaul, der Leser und Rezensenten in Ost und West gleichermaßen fasziniert wie polarisiert, einige Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet.

Beatrix Potter was one of the inventors of the contemporary picture book, and her small novels published at the turn of the twentieth century are still available and popular today. Writing in Code is the first book-length study of Potter's work, and it covers the entire oeuvre, examining all facets of her work in relation to her private life. Daphne Kutzer reveals the depth of the symbolism in Potter’s work and relates this to the issues of the author's own development as an independent woman and writer, and her struggles with domesticity, Unitarianism, and the socio-political issues in late-19th and early-20th century England. Weaving the subtle themes inscribed in Potter's own stories with the concerns and temperament of the author who wrote them, Kutzer exemplifies literary criticism as it can illuminate the breadth of allusion in children's literature.

Barbara Leckie's Open Houses addresses nineteenth-century documentary and print culture dedicated to convincing the reader of the wretchedness of housing of the poor and its urgent need for reform.

In the 1830s and '40s, a new preoccupation with the housing of the poor emerged in British print and visual culture. In response to cholera outbreaks, political unrest, and government initiatives, commentators evinced a keen desire to document housing conditions and agitate for housing reform. Consistently and strikingly, these efforts focused on opening the domestic interiors of the poor to public view. In Open Houses, Barbara Leckie addresses the massive body of print materials dedicated to convincing the reader of the wretchedness, unworthiness, and antipoetic quality of the living conditions of the poor and, accordingly, the urgent need for architectural reform. Putting these exposés into dialogue with the Victorian novel and the architectural idea (the manipulation of architecture and the built environment to produce certain effects), she illustrates the ways in which "looking into" the house animated new models for social critique and fictional form. As housing conditions failed to improve despite the ubiquity of these documentary and fictional exposés, commentators became increasingly skeptical about the capacity of print to generate change. Focusing on Bleak House, Middlemarch, and The Princess Casamassima, Leckie argues that writers offered a persuasive counterargument for the novel's intervention in social debates. Open Houses returns the architectural idea to the central position it occupied in nineteenth-century England and reconfigures how we understand innovations in the genre of the novel, the agitation for social reform, and the contours of nineteenth-century modernity.

This book examines the ways in which recent U.S. Latina literature challenges popular definitions of nationhood and national identity. It explores a group of feminist texts that are representative of the U.S. Latina literary boom of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, when an emerging group of writers gained prominence in mainstream and academic circles. Through close readings of select contemporary Mexican American, Puerto Rican, and Cuban American works, Maya Socolovsky argues that these narratives are “remapping” the United States so that it is fully integrated within a larger, hemispheric Americas. Looking at such concerns as nation, place, trauma, and storytelling, writers Denise Chavez, Sandra Cisneros, Esmeralda Santiago, Ana Castillo, Himilce Novas, and Judith Ortiz Cofer challenge popular views of Latino cultural “unbelonging” and make strong cases for the legitimate presence of Latinas/os within the United States. In this way, they also counter much of today’s anti-immigration rhetoric. Imagining the U.S. as part of a broader "Americas," these writings trouble imperialist notions of nationhood, in which political borders and a long history of intervention and colonization beyond those borders have come to shape and determine the dominant culture's writing and the defining of all Latinos as "other" to the nation.
