Book Description

Aug. 9 2004 0521833930 978-0521833936
Susan Griffin analyzes the neglected body of anti-Catholic fiction written between the 1830s and the turn of the century in both Britain and the U.S. Her examination reveals how Anglo-American anti-Catholic sentiment was distilled to provide Victorians with a set of political, cultural and literary "truths" through which they defined themselves as Protestant and, therefore, "normative". This book will be essential reading for scholars working on British Victorian literature as well as nineteenth-century American literature and will also interest scholars of literary, cultural and religious studies.

Review

"Griffin deserves credit for working her way through a mass of unreadable novels that helped to fuel the Protestant imagination at a critical time in the history of both the US and England. The book provides an interesting interpretation of the genre." J.R. Griffin, University of Southern Colorado, CHOICE

"At the end of Susan Griffin's valuable book...one is left with a sense of admiration at her methodological sureness of touch....Griffin's perceptive and well-researched book offers much fascinating food for thought...." James H. Murphy, DePaul University, Victorians Institute Journal

"This book is an impressive contribution to the growing body of scholarship on Victorian religion and literature."
Maria LaMonaca, Columbia College, Victorian Studies

"Anti-Catholicism and Nineteenth Century Fiction highlights the myriad ways in which British and American Victorian fiction used anti-Catholic discourse to shape and express cultural anxieties about national identity, gender definitions, generational conflicts, and normative Protestantism. The broad range of texts, themes and plots, as well as Griffin's transnational focus, provide wide-ranging and unique insight into the meaning and function of anti-Catholic narratives. It is well worth reading." - The Journal of Religion Susan E. Hill, University of Northern Iowa

"This book will be of great value to anyone interested in critical accounts of nineteenth century popular fiction, as it builds on the work of Michael Deming, Jenny Franchot, and Nina Baym" - Thomas Butler, Transylvania University

Book Description

Griffin analyzes the important but neglected body of anti-Catholic fiction written between the 1830s and the turn of the century in both Britain and America. Griffin examines Anglo-American anti-Catholicism and reveals how this sentiment was distilled to provide Victorians with a set of political, cultural and literary tropes through which they defined themselves as Protestant and therefore normative. This book will be essential reading for scholars working on British Victorian literature as well as nineteenth-century American literature; it will be of interest to scholars of literary, cultural and religious studies.
