Forgotten Novels – The Hidden Stories of the 19th and early 20th Century
Fancy rediscovering some of the forgotten women novelists of the Victorian and Edwardian era? This new online course with Sherry Ashworth starting in September may be for you! Women’s writing was often dismissed as romantic, sensationalist and lesser than men’s writing. So can we reclaim these neglected women’s novels?
Under Sherry’s expert guidance you can discover a range of ‘new’ writing starting with Elizabeth Gaskell’s own overlooked short novel, Cousin Phillis. Then tuck into lesser known works to discover stories about female power and Victorian business, unrequited love in London’s Jewish community and a Bengali feminist science-fiction utopia. Perfect for extending your knowledge of Victorian literature and finding some new favourite writers along the way.
