The three-decker work features vivid pen-portraits of Newby, Tinsley, Bentley and other publishers, and details a young Irish woman’s struggles for success in mid-century literary London, against contemporary views that ‘Irish stories are quite gone out’. More than once, its acerbic narrator diagnoses astutely the forces constraining women‘s literary fame.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Palgrave||Start page:||91||End page:||106||Series/Report no.:||History of British Women’s Writing; Volume 6||Copyright (published version):||2018 the Author||Keywords:||Irish fiction; Great Irish Famine; Irish women novelists; Poetry; Victorian prosopography||DOI:||10.1057/978-1-137-58465-6_6||Other versions:||https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9781137584649||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Hartley L.
