The Broadview Anthology of Victorian Short Stories by Dennis Denisoff

Beautifully captures the astonishing variety and ingenuity of Victorian Short Stories, collecting together in one volume works focused on a wide range of popular Victorian subjects, in a wide range of styles and forms - including comic, gothic, fantasy, adventure, science fiction, colonial, and children's tales.


Dennis Denisoff's anthology of Victorian short fiction is a ground-breaking contribution to teaching and research, with a wide-ranging and original selection of stories by 19th-century writers, and an expertly-chosen group of Victorian critical essays on the short story and its genres. -- Elaine Showalter, Emeritus Professor, Princeton University
