PART I: THE MANUSCRIPT DIARY -- Elizabeth Barrett, the Abandoned Diary, and the Challenge of Time -- Arthur Munby, the Endless Diary, and the Promise of Space -- Family, Gender, and the Intimate Diary -- PART II: THE DIARY IN PRINT -- The Politics of Publication -- Fiction and the Feminization of the Diary
Time, Space, and Gender in the Nineteenth-Century British Diary is the first comprehensive overview of the omnipresent phenomenon that was the nineteenth-century British diary. Examining manuscript diaries, diary publication, and diaries in fiction, the book explores how the diary's organization of time and space made it an invaluable and uniquely effective vehicle for the dominant discourses of the period, including religion, Romanticism, empire, empiricism, domesticity, and nostalgia. The exploration of this vast and varied genre lays the foundation for an analysis of how the diary came to be known as the feminized, emotive, private form still privileged today
