The nineteenth century saw the arrival of the mass media: high-volume illustrated newspapers and magazines, photography, and the telegraph which connected every part of the Empire. From the beginning, royalty was an essential subject for the media; Victoria's reign was documented in a detailnever known before: her accession and coronation, her very public marriage, her travels at home and abroad, her Jubilees, and ultimately her death and funeral. John Plunkett's book is the first to study the role of the media in Queen Victoria's reign. He argues that the development of popular print and visual media in the nineteenth century helped to reinvent the position of the monarchy in national life. He reveals how the royal family was one of theprincipal beneficiaries of the growth of cheap newspapers and illustrated periodicals and the advent of new media. He brings to light a wealth of previously unexamined material, including a detailed account of the emergence of royal journalism and the role of functionaries like the Court Newsman,and shows how photographs of Victoria were routinely retouched and manipulated in the latter decades of the century.

How can we make sense of the innovative structure of Euripidean drama? And what political role did tragedy play in the democracy of classical Athens? These questions are usually considered to be mutually exclusive, but this book shows that they can only be properly answered together. Providing a new approach to the aesthetics and politics of Greek tragedy, Victoria Wohl argues that the poetic form of Euripides' drama constitutes a mode of political thought. Through readings of select plays, she explores the politics of Euripides' radical aesthetics, showing how formal innovation generates political passions with real-world consequences. Euripides' plays have long perplexed readers. With their disjointed plots, comic touches, and frequent happy endings, they seem to stretch the boundaries of tragedy. But the plays' formal traits—from their exorbitantly beautiful lyrics to their arousal and resolution of suspense—shape the audience's political sensibilities and ideological attachments. Engendering civic passions, the plays enact as well as express political ideas. Wohl draws out the political implications of Euripidean aesthetics by exploring such topics as narrative and ideological desire, the politics of pathos, realism and its utopian possibilities, the logic of political allegory, and tragedy's relation to its historical moment. Breaking through the impasse between formalist and historicist interpretations of Greek tragedy, Euripides and the Politics of Form demonstrates that aesthetic structure and political meaning are mutually implicated—and that to read the plays poetically is necessarily to read them politically.

James Douglas described Victoria as a perfect Eden when the Hudson's Bay Company first set up its trade depot in what was then Fort Victoria. A few years later, more than 30,000 miners arrived, hoping to find their own Eden in a rich gold strike that set the stage for the tiny settlement's growth into the vibrant city that Victoria has become. Using more than 140 archival photographs and an informative, easy-to-read text, Victoria: A History in Photographs tells the city's story in compelling visual fashion, making this a keepsake for visitors and residents alike.

Die vorliegende Arbeit setzt am Kippmoment von Fülle zu Überfülle an – dem prekären Punkt, an dem Fülle Bedrohlichkeit entfaltet – und untersucht die poetologischen Konsequenzen dieser Entwicklung um 1800. Die Autorin präsentiert neben der begriffsgeschichtlichen Klärung die Omnipräsenz der Fülle in der Dichtungstheorie der Vormoderne. Darüber hinaus untersucht sie die von den literarischen Texten des 18. Jahrhunderts ausgebildeten Bewältigungsstrategien ästhetischer Überschüsse. Poetologische (Baumgarten, Lessing, Schiller) und künstlerische Werke (Jean Paul, Goethe) erhellen dabei gleichermaßen die sprachliche, inhaltliche und textstrukturelle Auseinandersetzung mit Fülle. The present work deals itself with the moment when abundance turns into overabundance – the crucial point when abundance becomes threatening - and examines the poetological consequences of this development around 1800. The author defines the historical meaning of the term and discusses the omnipresence of abundance in the pre-modern poetry theories. Additionally, she examines coping strategies emerged from the aesthetic surpluses in literary writings of the 18th century. Poetological (Baumgarten, Lessing, Schiller) and artistic (Jean Paul, Goethe) works enlighten the linguistic, contentual and textstructral debate on abundance.

Queen Victoria was one of the most complex cultural productions of her age. In Royal Representations, Margaret Homans investigates the meanings Victoria held for her times, Victoria's own contributions to Victorian writing and art, and the cultural mechanisms through which her influence was felt. Arguing that being, seeming, and appearing were crucial to Victoria's "rule," Homans explores the variability of Victoria's agency and of its representations using a wide array of literary, historical, and visual sources. Along the way she shows how Victoria provided a deeply equivocal model for women's powers in and out of marriage, how Victoria's dramatic public withdrawal after Albert's death helped to ease the monarchy's transition to an entirely symbolic role, and how Victoria's literary self-representations influenced debates over political self-representation. Homans considers versions of Victoria in the work of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, George Eliot, John Ruskin, Margaret Oliphant, Lewis Carroll, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Julia Margaret Cameron.
