  MEN OF LETTERS, WRITING LIVES In this fascinating new study Trev Broughton explores developments withinVictorian auto/biography and asks what they can teach us about theconditions and limits of male literary authority. She focuses on two casestudies from the period 1880–1903:ãthe auto/biographical theories and achievements of Sir Leslie Stephen,one of the century’s most revered exponents of the written life; andãthe debate surrounding James Anthony Froude’s account of themarriage of Thomas and Jane Welsh Carlyle.The author examines the proliferation of the professions with a vestedinterest in the ‘written life’; the speeding-up and institutionalization of theLife-and-Letters industry; and the consequent spread of a network of mainly male practitioners and commentators. She argues that theseelements all contributed to a new ‘auto/biographical’ subjectivity. Men of Letters, Writing Lives  will be of great interest to students andscholars of literature, cultural history, gender, and auto/biography. Trev Broughton  teaches Women’s Studies and Literature at theUniversity of York, specialising in auto/biography. Her previouspublications include Women’s Lives/Women’s Times: New Essays on Auto/ Biography  (edited with Linda Anderson) (1997) and The Infernal Desires of Angela Carter  (edited with Joseph Bristow) (1997).  MEN OF LETTERS,WRITING LIVES Masculinity and Literary Auto/ Biography in the Late VictorianPeriod Trev Lynn Broughton London and New York  First published 1999by Routledge11 New Fetter Lane, London EC4P 4EEThis edition published in the Taylor & Francis e-Library, 2005.“To purchase your own copy of this or any of Taylor & Francis or Routledge’scollection of thousands of eBooks please go to www.eBookstore.tandf.co.uk.”Simultaneously published in the USA and Canadaby Routledge29 West 35th Street, New York, NY 10001© 1999 Trev Lynn BroughtonAll rights reserved.
