Summary The diverse literatures of Victorian and Edwardian Britain have provided a wealth of research material for novice and expert researchers alike. While many of the novels, plays, poetry, and prose from the Victorian and Edwardian ages are still readily available, a vast amount of literature is no longer in print. Recent efforts in digitization--the Victorian Women Writers Project; English Literary Periodicals, 1681-1914; Early British Periodicals, 1681-1921; 19th Century British Library Newspapers; 19th Century U.K. Periodicals; Times Digital Archives; Victorian Popular Culture; and even Google Books--have helped to make many texts of these periods more widely accessible. Literary Research and the Victorian and Edwardian Ages, 1850-1910 describes traditional and contemporary resources for researching these eras of British literature and how the resources can be used in conjunction with one another. Helping readers navigate reference materials and issues particular to the literature of the time, this book serves as an essential guide for librarians, professors, graduate students, undergraduate students, and independent scholars alike. --Book Jacket.
