Book Summary:

This unique collection brings back into print some of the lesser known poems of James ('B.V'.) Thomson (1834-82) as well as his acclaimed The City of Dreadful Night. Composed in the later half of the nineteenth-century, many of Thomson's post-Christian poems challenge the securities of Victorian religious comfort and sceptically view the human condition as devoid of connection with any providential sustenance.

Book Summary:

Introduced by Edwin Morgan. In this haunting poem from the latter part of the nineteenth century, Scots-born writer James Thomson anticipated the modern age’s nightmare vision of the city as a place of loneliness, alienation and spiritual despair. In contrast to the late Victorian confidence all around him, Thomson dared to face the possibility that the universe was utterly indifferent to human affairs. The strange and dark images in The City of Dreadful Night have become a landmark of modern literature, for the tomb-like streets and empty squares in this memorable poem preceded T.S Eliot’s The Waste Land, and the darker visions of expressionism and surrealism by over forty-five years. Published in instalments in 1874 and then in book form in 1880, The City of Dreadful Night has long been unavailable as a complete text. This exciting new edition is introduced and annotated by Edwin Morgan, long an admirer of Thomson’s work, and a leading modern poet in his own right.

Book Summary:

From tabloid exposes of child prostitution to the grisly tales of Jack the Ripper, narratives of sexual danger pulsated through Victorian London. Expertly blending social history and cultural criticism, Judith Walkowitz shows how these narratives reveal the complex dramas of power, politics, and sexuality that were being played out in late nineteenth-century Britain, and how they influenced the language of politics, journalism, and fiction. Victorian London was a world where long-standing traditions of class and gender were challenged by a range of public spectacles, mass media scandals, new commercial spaces, and a proliferation of new sexual categories and identities. In the midst of this changing culture, women of many classes challenged the traditional privileges of elite males and asserted their presence in the public domain. An important catalyst in this conflict, argues Walkowitz, was W. T. Stead's widely read 1885 article about child prostitution. Capitalizing on the uproar caused by the piece and the volatile political climate of the time, women spoke of sexual danger, articulating their own grievances against men, inserting themselves into the public discussion of sex to an unprecedented extent, and gaining new entree to public spaces and journalistic practices. The ultimate manifestation of class anxiety and gender antagonism came in 1888 with the tabloid tales of Jack the Ripper. In between, there were quotidien stories of sexual possibility and urban adventure, and Walkowitz examines them all, showing how women were not simply figures in the imaginary landscape of male spectators, but also central actors in the stories of metropolotin life that reverberated in courtrooms, learned journals, drawing rooms, street corners, and in the letters columns of the daily press. A model of cultural history, this ambitious book will stimulate and enlighten readers across a broad range of interests.

Book Summary:

The poet James Thomson (1834-82) was author of the pessimistic masterpiece THE CITY OF DREADFUL NIGHT, which Herman Melville described as 'a modern Book of Job'. Born into a millenialist family, reared in a London Scottish orphanage, Thomson was an early member of the Corps of Army Schoolmasters. Expelled from the Army for insubordination, he wrote for the weekly freethought NATIONAL REFORMER where he published pioneering translations of Leopardi, versions of Heine, prose satires on church affairs and biting criticism of the narrowness of contemporary British Literature. He early championed Browning and Meredith, made the study of Shelley his life's work, and in his own poetry presented as no other has done in English the alienation of the isolated and displaced in industrial society. An outsider on the Bloomsbury scene around W M Rossetti, Thomson died homeless and in poverty in 1882.This second edition was completed by Tom shortly before his death and is being published posthumously.Contains edits to chapters 1, 2 and 22 Tom made after the first edition and also full text to James Thomson's poem The City of Dreadful Night.
