Red Pottage

I am pleased to announce that this blog is already drawing those interested in late Victorian women's literature together. I have been away for a while due to limited computer facilities- technological blips are slowly turning me into a luddite! Last week, Dr Carolyn Oulton, Senior Lecturer in the Department of English and Language Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University got in touch with me. She is in the final stages of a biography of Mary Cholmondeley and is trying to start a campaign to get Red Pottage back into print. Judith Luna at the OUP has tentatively said they might be interested if they were convinced there was a demand, but she is proving hard to convince.

I am in the process of setting up a forum for discussion on this blog specifically for this but in the meantime, please start expressing your views by leaving comments below this post. I shall be back later with a more meaty post later!
