About this book

This book examines the dramatic work of Dickens, Browning, Collins, and Tennyson, their interaction with the theatrical world, and their attempts to develop their reputations as playwrights. These major Victorian writers each authored several professional plays, but why has their achievement been overlooked?

About the authors

Richard Pearson lectures at the National University of Ireland Galway and was previously Head of Arts and Humanities at the University of Worcester. He is the director of an AHRC-funded digital archive, The Victorian Plays Project. His publications include W.M. Thackeray and the Mediated Text, The Victorians and the Ancient World, and The Index of English Literary Manuscripts.

Reviews

“Pearson’s work makes significant contributions to the study of each of its four central authors and connects in interesting ways with work undertaken on female authorship and the stage in relation to writers like Charlotte Brontë and Mary Elizabeth Braddon. Victorian Writers and the Stage is a valuable and highly insightful monograph that traverses literary and theatrical history with ease.” (Beth Palmer, English Studies, Vol. 98 (2), 2017)
