Eça de Queirós and the Victorian Press

Teresa Pinto Coelho


Tamesis Books



Focusses on the years that Eça de Queirós lived in Paris and shows how the periodicals he conceived and edited were modeled on dozens of Victorian and American publications.
Eça de Queirós' work has primarily been studied within the context of French literature and culture. This book presents a different Eça. Focusing on the years that he lived in Paris, it demonstrates how the periodicals he himself conceived and edited were modeled on dozens of Victorian ones such as the Contemporary Review, the Review of Reviews or the Idler, as well as on some American ones such as the Forum, the Arena, and the North American Review.
This book shows us an Eça who is undeniably an Anglophile, an Eça long seduced by the diversity and originality of English thought, an Eça increasingly distant from the French cultural model which had marked his education.
