Victorian Biography Reconsidered by Juliette Atkinson



Books Title: Victorian Biography Reconsidered

Victorian Biography Reconsidered seeks to overthrow deep-seated preconceptions about Victorian biography by demonstrating that, long before our current cultural preoccupation with the lives of neglected or unknown men and women, Victorian biographers sought to bring such subjects to public attention. Through an examination of numerous biographies, from the lives of working-class scientists to minor women writers, this book examines how and whynineteenth-century biographers challenged the contemporary obsession with 'Great Men'. What emerges is that biographers were eager to take on the role of cultural mediator, which helped them assert their importance at a time when the status of men of letters and the nature of the reading public were undergoing profoundchanges. Most surprisingly of all, they showed comparatively little interest in conferring immortality on their subjects, but were more interested in stimulating a feeling of gratitude for hidden labour, both manual and intellectual, that sustained the nation.
