'The old ideal of Manhood has grown obsolete,' wrote Thomas Carlyle in 1831, 'and the new is still invisible to us.' The essays in this volume explore the way Victorian novelists tried to answer the question of what it meant to 'be a man': how manhood was learned, sustained, broken, or restored, and how the idea of the manly was shaped by class, schooling, region and religion, and by scientific and medical debate. Topics covered include the playful subversion of gender roles in the early writings of Charlotte Brontë; changing patterns of working class masculinity in London and Manchester; Dickens and the nurturing male; boyhood and girlhood in Eliot's The Mill on the Floss; the challenge to patriarchy in sensation fiction; manhood, imperialism and the adventure novel; masculinity and aestheticism; Hardy's reluctant, failed, or damaged men; and Conrad's studies of men isolated or divided against themselves.

About the Author:

Phillip Mallett is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of St Andrews, UK. He is the author of Rudyard Kipling: a Literary Biography, and editor of scholarly editions of The Return of the Native and The Mayor of Casterbridge. He has also edited collections of essays on Kipling, on satire, and on Thomas Hardy, including Studies in Thomas Hardy for Palgrave, and Thomas Hardy in Context.

Review:

“The goal of the collection is to present the ‘matrix of culturally and historically specific masculinities’ available to scholars of the Victorian novel, with Victorian fiction as the ideal ground for ‘exploring, questioning, and reinforcing values and beliefs’ related to masculinities. ... the essays suggest several important points about the future of Victorian masculinity studies. ... It is a valuable resource for researchers seeking a clear and lively introduction to the most celebrated novelists of the era.” (Melissa Shields Jenkins, English Literature in Transition, Vol. 59 (2), April, 2016)
