Sample text

May no eye destined to reflect the beauties of the New Jerusalem inward upon the beatific soul, behold such a sight as mine then beheld! My immortal spirit, blood and bones, were all withered at such a sight; and I arose and withdrew, with groanings which the pangs of death shall never wring from me. (Hogg, 2001, p. 162) The reader’s position is subject to contradiction here. Wringhim, as the groaning play on his name in the last line of this passage suggests, turns his eyes ultimately upon himself; this is surely, in the theological frame, the moment of despair that leads directly to his suicide, the maximum point at which his ‘friend’ (that is, his own immortal soul) becomes repulsive to him.

Scott’s advice, which was commercially sound – leading to the only real financial success that Maturin ever had – led also to acts of self-censorship on Maturin’s part, as he struggled with these friendly prescriptions. 4 But when he came to write Melmoth the Wanderer (1820), he seems to have broken out into nervously open rebellion against Scott’s conflation of Narrator and Editor in that text and parodied it in a most outrageous way. The opening of the novel is visibly Scott-like: young John Melmoth goes out to visit his uncle in County Wicklow in 1816.

Taking her career change as part of the increasing professionalization of authorship in the first half of the nineteenth century, this chapter focuses on the aesthetic, economic and moral constraints imposed on Eliot as a woman of the press as well as the way in which she attempted to subvert them through her aesthetic of sympathy.
