Product description

Synopsis

This anthology makes available to students and general readers the rich variety of Victorian magazines for women. The extracts range from fashion magazines to feminist journals, from serious works for Christian mothers to tales of romance and passion for "sweethearts". Focusing on the historical development of the British women's magazine, this illustrated work gives access to texts which few readers ever see. The first main section describes and illustrates eight different kinds of magazine for women, from the drawing room journal of the 1830s and 1840s to the cheap domestic magazines of the 1890s. The second section focuses on the different elements which made up the magazine's typical mix of ingredients, including fiction, the fashion plate, poetry, political journalism, advice columns and reader's letters. The last section is the most comprehensive listing of British Victorian women's magazines which currently exists.
