      My research concentrates on exploring connections between late-Victorian and Modernist fiction, sexuality and popular culture. My first book, James Joyce, Sexuality and Social Purity (Cambridge University Press, hardback ; paperback ) investigates the relationship between Joyce's fiction and the contemporary anti-vice societies who. Of course, by this time, a counter-movement was in progress, with the decadent movement, erotic publications like the Yellow Book, or the subversive wit of Oscar Wilde, challenging what I’ve been describing as key Victorian values. But this only signaled the complexity and diversity of late Victorian and Edwardian attitudes to sexuality.

The Victorian Era Upon the s, specifically , the strict beliefs of procreation only and gender roles returned. Women weren’t seen to have sexuality and their role was to service their husbands (Crooks & Baur, ).

      Of the many books since the s that claim to overturn the clichÇ of Victorian prudery, this is surely the least interesting, persuasive, and readable. Mason (English/Univ. College, London) broadly defines the Victorian era as starting with the s—the Romantic, Regency, or Georgian period—and petering out well before , his cut-off date. age sexuality. He justifies Austen's inclusion in a book on Victorian fiction by showing how Pride and Prejudice "establishes the basic principles of the lit erary production of the sexual in the Victorian novels that follow it" (35). Sexuality in Victorian Fiction is full of interesting readings and sharp insights.
