Ann Heilmann and Mark Llewellyn's Neo-Victorianism: The Victorians in the Twenty-First Century, and their more prescriptive understanding of neo-Victorianism 'as strongly emphasising the metafictional strategies and self-reflexivity of the discipline' is set up as a foil to this broad interpretation and to the present volume's assertion that neo-Victorian studies is moving beyond postmodernism and requires 'new tools of analysis' Boehm-Schnitker and Gruss, p. Some of these new critical strategies are demonstrated in the first of the collection's four sections.
Rosa Karl, for example, argues that 'nostalgia [ This essay is obviously the most relevant to Gaskell scholars and also stands out as the only one to discuss a television series.
The adaptation was a straightforward costume drama only incorporating elements of Mr Harrison's Confessions and My Lady Ludlow 'in order to establish more conventional patriarchal structures and to introduce a romance plot with a wedding' p. This shows little of the self-aware re-imagining of the past by which Heilmann and Llewellyn identify good neo-Victorianism. However, Enderwitz and Feldmann's discussion of the significance of material culture and nostalgia in Cranford both the mini-series and Gaskell's text demonstrates how overlooking a work which 'represents the past in a nostalgic mode' p.
Using a range of critical and cultural viewpoints, it highlights the problematic nature of this 'new' genre and its relationship to re-interpretative critical perspectives on the nineteenth century. Mark is currently working on a book entitled Incest in English Culture, This coherent, detailed and timely study addresses this fascinating question in a lively and engaging way.
Heilmann and Llewellyn provide a valuable account of what is currently one of the most interesting areas of literary studies, as well as introducing us to a host of twenty-first century texts which have not as yet been widely discussed. Neo-Victorianism looks set to become essential reading for fellow researchers as well as any serious student of neo-Victorian studies and will prove an invaluable guide for further critical enquiry into reader response theorisations of this genre. While other critics have tackled the neo-Victorian over the last decade, this study's merit is twofold.
First, the comprehensiveness of its almost encyclopedic approach provides an invaluable map to students, teachers, and other interested readers who may be new to this thriving area of research. Second, Heilmann and Llewellyn's conceptual work in their substantial introduction, which addresses the ''ethics and aesthetics of appropriation,'' helps both define the parameters of neo-Victorian writing and lay out models for analyzing this growing body of work.
