2018 (English)In: Richard Marsh, Popular Fiction and Literary Culture, 1890-1915: Rereading the Fin De SieCle / [ed] Victoria Margree, Daniel Orrells, Minna Vuohelainen, Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2018, p. 45-62Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter ties Richard Marsh’s novel Mrs Musgrave – And Her Husband (1895) to the anxiety surrounding the degeneration debate. The chapter argues that novel provides a unique contribution to the debate surrounding hereditary criminality by simultaneously and deliberately validating and critiquing the racist and sexist matrix that arguably informed late-nineteenth-century British culture and society. Unlike much other late-nineteenth-century fiction, the novel employs a pattern where racial and sexual discourses are repeatedly set on course only to be derailed, and derailed only to be brought back on track again.
