Summary
"Margaret Oliphant was one of the most prolific and popular writers of her day. Her domestic novels are steeped in the broad social, political, and religious worlds of the Victorian era, and her Chronicles of Carlingford series stands as an insightful portrait of English life. Phoebe Junior, the last of this series, examines Victorian class dynamics by following the social mobility of one family and the effects of this mobility on the daughter, Phoebe." "Based on the earliest edition, this Broadview Literary Text also includes a variety of contextualizing primary sources. Among these are excerpts from Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management, illustrations from Punch, and materials on the "Woman Question" and on Etiquette and Dress."--BOOK JACKET.
