Gissing's novels compel because of the ideas they present and the art they embody. This new collection, unusually, brings together contributors from a range of disciplines - an innovative art historian, a leading urban geographer, and literary and feminist critics from Britain, Europe and North America. Together, they address a cluster of central themes, tensions and relationships dramatised by life in the city, from the viewpoint of gender, class, art, urban development, social justice and democratic change. With an introductory essay by John Spiers on the cultural framework, Gissing in the City focuses on the literary and cultural life of London at the end of the nineteenth century, Gissing and the City contributes to students and scholars in literary, gender and urban studies.
