Redefining the Modern spans nearly a century and a half in a series of essays that capture the crucial shifts and transformations marking the change from the Victorian to the Modern period. At the center of the collection is the understanding that literature responds to, as well as initiates, social, intellectual, and sometimes political change. It also recognizes that historical categories, like genres, need to be realigned. The diverse material ranges from Jane Austen's laughter to female detectives and black fiction. It coheres, however, through its focus on the interaction of language and society and the way language and culture maintain a persistent and dynamic exchange. Rather than deny links between one period and another, this collection argues for continuity and development, emphasizing revision and renewal rather than rejection and refusal. No longer do critics accept fierce divides or unbridgeable paths between the work of the Victorians and moderns. Recent approaches to the period, reflecting gender, cultural studies, and new historicism, provide fresh means of assessment. Central to this reconception is the recognition that if the Victorians invented us, we, in turn, have invented the Victorians. How we have done so is precisely the focus of this collection.

This study is the first comprehensive, full-length account of the works of the Anglo-Jewish author Leonard William Merrick [formerly Miller], (1864-1939). Drawing on unpublished materials, it covers Merrick's twelve novels, his several volumes of short stories, eight plays, and contributions to motion pictures. A former actor, Merrick often wrote about actors; George Orwell regards Merrick's fiction about the theater as the best of its time, especially ""The Passion of Peggy Harper"" (1911). H. G. Wells applauded Merrick's depiction of racism in ""The Quaint Companions"" (1903). Anti-Semitism is shown in ""Violet Moses"" (1891). ""Mr. Bazalgette's Agent"" (1888) is the first novel in English to star a lady detective whose story is told through her diary. Many of Merrick's works also focus upon a 'New Woman' The pioneering meta-fictional aspects of Merrick's works deserve attention. William Baker is Distinguished Research Professor, Professor of English and Professor, University Libraries at Northern Illinois University. Jeanette Roberts Shumaker is a professor of English at San Diego State University.
