JEWSBURY: The Collected Writings of Geraldine Jewsbury (1812-1880)

This project makes possible the critical re-assessment of Geraldine Jewsbury by making available the complete original texts of all 6 novels and both children's stories written by her and published during her lifetime.  These are:

  • Zoe: the history of two lives (1845) - one of the earliest Victorian novels to explore religious scepticism;
  • The half-sisters (1848), arguably her finest work, exploring existential questions and contrasting the focussed and fulfilled life of an actress with the hum-drum existence of a manufacturer's wife;
  • Marian Withers (1851) - which explores themes of entrepreneurship and industrialism;
  • Constance Herbert (1855);
  • The sorrows of gentility (1856);
  • Right or Wrong (1859);
  • The history of an adopted child (1853) and Angelo: or the pine forest in the alps (1861);
  • We also include A selection from the letters of Geraldine Jewsbury to Jane Welsh Carlyle (1892).
