I am studying part-time for a PhD on the Victorian writer Florence Marryat, and shall no doubt come to regret choosing an author who wrote around 70 novels.
I’m generally interested in lesser-known women writers of the nineteenth century, such as Charlotte Riddell, Rhoda Broughton, Ouida, Annie Thomas, Eliza Lynn Linton and Sarah Grand.
I completed an MA in Victorian literature in 2008. I thought it might be useful to upload my essays and dissertation. It seems a shame for them to languish in a drawer after all that hard work. Now, this was my first venture in academia and I make no claims to brilliance and there will be many schoolgirl errors. However, if you do find any useful bits, please don’t be tempted to copy them because universities now have clever software which uses a database of essays to check for plagiarism.
