Victorian Britain offered to the globe an economic structure of unique complexity. The trading nation, at the heart of a great empire, developed the practices of advanced capitalism - currency, banking, investment, money markets, business practices and theory, intellectual property legislation - from which the financial systems of the contemporary world emerged. Cultural forms in Victorian Britain transacted with high capitalism in a variety of ways but literary critics interestedin economics have traditionally been preoccupied either with writers' hostility to industrial capitalism in terms of its shaping of class, or with the development of consumerism. Victorian Literature and Finance is the first extended study to take seriously the relationships between literary forms andthose more complex discourses of Victorian high finance. These essays move beyond the examination of literature that was merely impatient with the perceived consequences of capitalism to analyse creative relationships between culture and economic structures. Considering such topics as the nature of currency, women and the culture of investment, the profits of a modern media age, the dramatization of risk on the Victorian stage, the practice of realism in relation to business theory, the cultureof speculation at the end of the century, and arguments about the uncomfortable relationship between literary and financial capital, Victorian Literature and Finance sets new terms for understanding and theorizing the relationship between high finance and literary writing in the nineteenthcentury.

In Forgery in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture, Sara Malton insists that we fully account for the prominence of forgery in the nineteenth-century cultural imagination. Examining a range of works from Dickens to Wilde, she considers how social and legal contexts inform the shifting representation of the crime and its varied perpetrators throughout the nineteenth century. Distinct in its historical attentiveness, Forgery in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture illuminates the breadth of cultural issues to which this “crime of the first magnitude” is linked.

Das literarische Abenteuer aus Norwegen, das autobiographische Projekt von Karl Ove Knausgård geht weiter: Nach Sterben und Lieben nun Spielen – ein Roman über eine Kindheit, der eine Welt beschreibt, in der Kinder und Erwachsene parallele Leben führen, die sich nie begegnen. Alles beginnt mit einer traditionellen Familie: Vater, Mutter und zwei Jungen, die nach Südnorwegen ziehen, in ein neues Haus in einer neuen Siedlung. Es sind die frühen Siebzigerjahre, die Kinder sind klein, die Eltern jung, die Zukunft scheint offen und verheißungsvoll. Aber irgendwann beginnt sie sich zu schließen, irgendwann wird das, was mit großen Hoffnungen begann, klein und festgelegt. Was ist passiert? Wie konnte es dazu kommen? »An einem milden und bewölkten Tag im August 1969 fuhr auf einer schmalen Straße am äußeren Ende einer südnorwegischen Insel, zwischen Wiesen und Felsen, Weiden und Wäldchen, ein Bus. Er gehörte der Arendal-Dampfschifffahrtsgesellschaft und war wie alle Busse des Unternehmens hell- und dunkelbraun. Er fuhr über eine Brücke, an einer schmalen Bucht entlang, blinkte rechts und hielt. Die Tür ging auf, eine kleine Familie stieg aus. Der Vater, ein großer und schlanker Mann in einem weißen Hemd und einer hellen Polyesterhose, trug zwei Koffer. Die Mutter, in einem beigen Mantel und mit einem hellblauen Kopftuch, das um die langen Haare geschlungen war, hielt an der einen Hand einen Kinderwagen und an der anderen einen kleinen Jungen. Als der Bus weitergefahren war, hing seine dicke, graue Abgaswolke noch für einen Moment über dem Asphalt.«
