Fellowship Work Summary, 2000–01

Herbert F. Tucker wrote eight chapters of his book on The Proof of Epic in Britain, 1790-1910, and an article on "Epic" that has been accepted for publication in A Companion to Victorian Poetry, edited by Antony Harrison et al. (Blackwell, forthcoming, 2002). As co-editor (with Dorothy Mermin), he did extensive editing on a teaching anthology, entitled Victorian Literature, 1830-1900, just published by Harcourt. He put the finishing touches on two essays: "Literal Illustration in Victorian Print" (accepted for publication in The Victorian Illustrated Book, edited by Richard Maxwell [University Press of Virginia, forthcoming, 2002]), and "Arnold and the Authorization of Criticism" (accepted for publication in Interpreting the Victorians, edited by Suzy Anger [Cornell University Press, forthcoming, 2001]).
