Abstract

At the heart of Victorian culture was the local weekly newspaper. More popular than books, more widely read than the London papers, the local press was a national phenomenon. This book redraws the Victorian cultural map, shifting our focus away from one centre, London, and towards the many centres of the provinces. It offers a new paradigm in which place, and a sense of place, are vital to the histories of the newspaper, reading and publishing.Hobbs offers new perspectives on the nineteenth century from an enormous yet neglected body of literature: the hundreds of local newspapers published and read across England. He reveals the people, processes and networks behind the publishing, maintaining a unique focus on readers and what they did with the local paper as individuals, families and communities. Case studies and an unusual mix of quantitative and qualitative evidence show that the vast majority of readers preferred the local paper, because it was about them and the places they loved. A Fleet Street in Every Town positions the local paper at the centre of debates on Victorian newspapers, periodicals, reading and publishing. It reorientates our view of the Victorian press away from metropolitan high culture and parliamentary politics, and towards the places where most people lived, loved and read. This is an essential book for anybody interested in nineteenth-century print culture, journalism and reading.At the heart of Victorian culture was the local weekly newspaper.

Abstract

Wie stellen sich Menschen ihre Zukunft vor und wie gehen sie damit um, wenn sie keinen Erfolg haben? Moralische Urteile über den Scheiternden sind die Regel – ein schamvoller Rückzug aus der Welt oft die Reaktion. Jedoch: Verlierer sind prädestiniert dafür, aus dem Scheitern zu lernen, über den Zustand der Welt und das eigene Handeln nachzudenken. Was bedeutet das für die Vorstellung von der Reflexivität der Moderne? Und gilt das bereits für die Epoche der Frühen Neuzeit? Die Beiträge des Bandes widmen sich diesen Fragen – über die disziplinären Grenzen zwischen Germanistik, Anglistik, Geschichtswissenschaft und Theologie hinweg.
