Description

This study explores women's crime fiction writing in the mid to late 19th century in three national contexts: American, Australian and British. It also opens up critical histories of the genre. The bringing of women's ""criminographic"" fiction to critical attention will help correct a broader critical occlusion of crime fiction in the decades of 1860 to 1880, as generic forms and boundaries (including the rise of sensation fiction) shifted and altered.
