Jane Austen's Hatred
In 1939, psychologist Denys Harding explained to the Literary Society of Manchester that English “gentleman of an older generation” had completely misread Jane Austen. The novelist, he announced and subsequently argued in the pages of F.R. Leavis’s Scrutiny, was no delicate satirist. Instead, she was a “regulated hater,” who managed and finessed the subtle “eruption of fear and hatred into the relationships of everyday social life.” Harding’s essay changed the current of Austen studies, permane…

Living in the Crypt : Mourning, Melancholy, and the Afterlife of Romeo and Juliet
We are told right at the start of Romeo and Juliet that their love is "death mark'd" - that they will be dead by the end of the play. But the lovers imagine themselves in states of living death so persistently before that promised end that a kind of mourning is deeply embedded in their self-awareness, in their love for each other, and in the audience's love for them. Ultimately, the play asks its audiences to reflect on the theater itself as a sacred space in which tragic characters cycle eter…

Sylvia Townsend Warner : a Biographical Introduction
The novelist, short-story writer and poet Sylvia Townsend Warner was a bestseller in the 1920s, a controversialist in the 1930s, a well-loved contributor to The New Yorker in the post-war years and a feminist 'rediscovery' in the 1970s. But despite a growing audience since her death in 1978, Warner remains (in Sarah Waters' words) 'one of the most shamefully under-read great British authors of the past 100 years'. What is it about Warner and her works that seems to have denied her an easy path t…

Sylvia Townsend Warner was a wide­ranging writer, a novelist and poet who is perhaps best known for her short stories (almost 150 appeared in The New Yorker) but who is also admired for her lifelong political and feminist commitments. Almost no attention has been paid to her essays and reviews, principally because of the lack of an edition of her non-fiction. With the Hunted: Selected Writings, the recently published edition by Peter Tolhurst, now makes it possible to evaluate Warner’s non-fic…
