The New Man, Masculinity and Marriage in the Victorian Novel, Hardback Book

The New Man, Masculinity and Marriage in the Victorian Novel Hardback

Part of the Gender and Genre series



By tracing the rise of the New Man alongside novelistic changes in the representations of marriage, MacDonald shows how this figure encouraged Victorian writers to reassess masculine behaviour and to re-imagine the marriage plot in light of wider social changes.

She finds examples in novels by Dickens, Anne Bronte, George Eliot and George Gissing.
