Synopsis: Margaret Oliphant Wilson Oliphant (1828-97) is one of the most important writers of the nineteenth century. She was both prolific and wide ranging in her career which spanned half a century. Primarily known as a novelist Mrs Oliphant is of interest to scholars today both for her wide popularity in her prime and her influential position as reviewer and journalist which saw her become an important critical voice for her generation. Her high profile in the literary world led to savage satirical portrayals in works by Anthony Trollope, Thomas Hardy and Henry James. This is the most ambitious and substantial scholarly edition of Margaret Oliphant's writings ever undertaken. In six parts and twenty-five volumes all her important fiction plus substantial selections of her criticism and journalism are collected and edited by a prestigious editorial team. Part III focuses on Oliphant's shorter fiction, including two serialized novellas. When The Curate in Charge was first published it was greeted as another successful story from Mrs Oliphant's pen. Lady Car: The Sequel of a Life over twenty years later enjoyed a similar reception. 'Mrs. Oliphant is always at her best in short stories', declared the Manchester Guardian in an 1889 review. The short stories presented here have been selected for their artistic merit, as well as to show the full range of Oliphant's writing. Her strength, humour and shrewdness are apparent in her stories, which often defy strict categorization, but which can be said to root modernist ambiguity in domestic realism. Her 'supernatural' tales follow a different path, one taken in reaction to the growth of scientific materialism and the challenge it presented to Victorian Christianity. They deal with the mystery of life after death and are heavily influenced by her early widowhood as well as the death of her daughter Maggie. The later stories were written in a time of personal crisis, when both her sons died in their early thirties. Though her beliefs became increasingly unorthodox, she never lost her faith in God. These stories are a reflection of a time when a religious belief was expected, but when the trials of life could test it to its core. Finally, Oliphant's writing on biography, history and European literature are represented across several journals of the time, most notably Blackwood's Magazine for which she wrote for forty-five years.
