Victorian Biography Reconsidered by Juliette Atkinson

Original 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.

Melville Biography by Hershel Parker

Original Title: Melville Biography

Melville Biography: An Inside Narrative is Hershel Parker’s history of the writing of Melville biographies, enriched by his intimate working relationships with great Melvilleans, dead and living. The first part is a mesmerizing autobiographical account of what went into creating his award-winning two-volume life of Herman Melville. Next, Parker traces six decades the persistent war New Critics have waged against biographical scholarship on Melville. American literary critics, he finds, impose New Critical theories of organic unity on Melville’s disrupted career even while truncating his body of work and minimizing his aesthetic interests. Parker celebrates the "divine amateurs" who use new technology to discover dazzling Melville stories and also lauds the writers of literature blogs as potential redeemers of academic and mainstream media reviewing. In the third part, Parker invites readers into his biographical workshop and challenges them with ambitious research assignments. Throughout this bold book, Parker seeks to reinvigorate the all-but-lost art of scholarly literary criticism and biography.
