Moulding the Female Body in Victorian Fairy Tales and Sensation Novels

Laurence Talairach-Vielmas explores Victorian representations of femininity in narratives that depart from mainstream realism, from fairy tales by George MacDonald, Lewis Carroll, Christina Rossetti, Juliana Horatia Ewing, and Jean Ingelow, to sensation novels by Wilkie Collins, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Rhoda Broughton, and Charles Dickens. Feminine representation, Talairach-Vielmas argues, is actually presented in a hyper-realistic way in such anti-realistic genres as children's literature and sensation fiction. In fact, it is precisely the clash between fantasy and reality that enables the narratives to interrogate the real and re-create a new type of realism that exposes the normative constraints imposed to contain the female body. In her exploration of the female body and its representations, Talairach-Vielmas examines how Victorian fantasies and sensation novels deconstruct and reconstruct femininity; she focuses in particular on the links between the female characters and consumerism, and shows how these serve to illuminate the tensions underlying the representation of the Victorian ideal.

Kate's aunt, who is suffering from dementia, tries to convince her she is next in line to be the keeper of the wardrobe for Cinderella's family--the real Cinderella. Kate'll have to prove that she's worthy to continue the family line and keep Cinderella's dress safe from the people who want it most. How can she do all that and keep it a secret from the boy she's falling for? This might be the most important role Kate has ever auditioned for. But will she get to the truth before it's forgotten? Next, in CINDERELLA'S SHOES, you'll be taken to post WWII Europe and uncover even more shocking family secrets. It all builds to one final showdown. Can Kate stop a family feud that has lasted for centuries? Finally, in CINDERELLA'S LEGACY, you'll read the story behind the story. You'll be taken up into the Tatra Mountains in what is now modern-day Poland and meet a fairy godmother living in a meadow as she wakes up one morning to a surprise on her doorstep.

Why Fairy Tales Stick

In his latest book, fairy tales expert Jack Zipes explores the question of why some fairy tales "work" and others don't, why the fairy tale is uniquely capable of getting under the skin of culture and staying there. Why, in other words, fairy tales "stick." Long an advocate of the fairy tale as a serious genre with wide social and cultural ramifications, Jack Zipes here makes his strongest case for the idea of the fairy tale not just as a collection of stories for children but a profoundly important genre. Why Fairy Tales Stick contains two chapters on the history and theory of the genre, followed by case studies of famous tales (including Cinderella, Snow White, and Bluebeard), followed by a summary chapter on the problematic nature of traditional storytelling in the twenty-first century.

Genre and Extravagance in the Novel

This book addresses an anomaly in the novel as genre: the generic promise to readers--that "reading a novel" is a familiar and repeatable experience--is challenged by the extravagant exceptions to this rule. Furthermore, these exceptions (such as Moby-Dick, Ulysses, or To the Lighthouse) are sui generis, hybrid concoctions that cannot be said to be typical novels. The novel, then, as literary form, succeeds by extravagantly disregarding or even disavowing the protocols of its own genre. Examining a number of famous examples from Don Quixote to Nostromo, this book offers an anatomy of exceptions that illustrate the structural role of their exceptionality for the prestige of the novel as literary form.
