This book tells the story of the way in which the turbulent, hedonistic world of mid-nineteenth-century Paris touched the careers and work of a host of Victorian writers, major and minor.
Elisabeth Jay was born in London and educated at Talbot Heath School, Bournemouth and St. Anne's College, Oxford. She has lived and worked mainly in Oxford, with the occasional period researching and/or teaching, in the USA and France. Her research publications have pursued two, occasionally intersecting, major pathways: work on a number of Victorian women writers and the cross-disciplinary study of nineteenth-century literature and theology and scholarly editions of Victorian works in a variety of genres. Since September, 2011 she is Professor Emerita at Oxford Brookes University.
