About this Event
The late-Victorian novelist George Gissing had a complex, often paradoxical personality. Biographers have typically identified his female family members as impediments to his self-realization. It is possible to tell a different, less unsympathetic story; it is also possible to see his novel The Emancipated (1890) as yet a third, analogous story about the prospects of escape from an uncongenial yet formative background.
Presented by Constance Harsh, Rebecca S. Chopp Chair in the Humanities and professor of English.
