Victorian Prose: An Anthology

Columbia University Press, 1999 - 469 страници
"Excerpts cover such topics of the Victorian period as British imperialism, the crisis of religious faith, and gender inequities. On the issue of colonial expansion, opinions range from Benjamin Disraeli's celebration of empire-building as evidence of Britain's glory to David Livingstone's promoting commerce with Africa as a way to restrain the slave trade and make it unprofitable. Views on "the woman question" extend from John Stuart Mill's defense of women's rights to Mrs. Humphry Ward's opposition to women's franchise and Sarah Ellis's support for the domestic ideal."--BOOK JACKET.
