Using a wealth of contemporary sources, 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. It attends both to the way writers actually experienced life in a capital city markedly different from London, and to how they retailed this to a swiftly-growing British readership. En route, it reveals the cosmopolitan world of the salonsand the social life of the British Embassy; demonstrates the risky competitive world of the freelance journalist; traces the developing role of the foreign correspondent, and examines the, sometimescontradictory, prejudices about Paris and the Parisians contained in contemporary fiction.Casting a wide literary net, the first part of this book explores these writers' reaction to the swiftly changing politics and topography of Paris, before considering the nature of their social interactions with the Parisians, through networks provided by institutions such as the British Embassy and the salons. The second part of the book examines the significance of Parisfor mid-nineteenth-century Anglophone journalists, paying particular attention to the ways in which the young Thackeray's exposure to Parisian print culture shaped him as both writer and artist. Thefinal part focuses on fictional representations of Paris, revealing the frequency with which they relied upon previous literary sources, and how the surprisingly narrow palette of subgenres, structures and characters they employed contributed to the characteristic, and sometimes contradictory, prejudices of a swiftly-growing British readership.

"This book considers the literary construction of what E. M. Forster calls 'the 1939 State', namely the anticipation of the Second World War between the Munich crisis of 1938 and the end of the Phoney War in the spring of 1940. Steve Ellis investigates not only myriad responses to the imminent war but also various peace aims and plans for post-war reconstruction outlined by such writers as T. S. Eliot, H. G. Wells, J. B. Priestley, George Orwell, E. M. Forster and Leonard and Virginia Woolf. He argues that the work of these writers is illuminated by the anxious tenor of this period. The result is a novel study of the 'long 1939', which transforms readers' understanding of the literary history of the eve-of-war era"--
