The hand-puppet play starring the characters Punch and Judy was introduced from England and became extremely popular in the United States in the 1800s. This book details information on nearly 350 American Punch players. It explores the significance of the 19th–century American show as a reflection of the attitudes and conditions of its time and place. The century was a time of changing feelings about what it means to be human. There was an intensified awareness of the racial, cultural, social and economical diversity of the human species, and a corresponding concern for the experience of human oneness. The American Punch and Judy show was one of the manifestations of these conditions.

Men in Wonderland

The Lost Girlhood of the Victorian Gentleman

Fascination with little girls pervaded Victorian culture. For many, girls represented the true essence of childhood or bygone times of innocence; but for middle-class men, especially writers, the interest ran much deeper. In Men in Wonderland, Catherine Robson explores the ways in which various nineteenth-century British male authors constructed girlhood, and analyzes the nature of their investment in the figure of the girl. In so doing, she reveals the link between the idealization of little girls and a widespread fantasy of male development--a myth suggesting that men become masculine only after an initial feminine stage, lived out in the protective environment of the nursery. Little girls, argues Robson, thus offer an adult male the best opportunity to reconnect with his own lost self. Tracing the beginnings of this myth in the writings of Romantics Wordsworth and De Quincey, Robson identifies the consolidation of this paradigm in numerous Victorian artifacts, ranging from literary works by Dickens and Barrett Browning, to paintings by Frith and Millais, to reports of the Royal Commission on Children's Employment. She analyzes Ruskin and Carroll's "high noon" of girl worship and investigates the destruction of the fantasy in the closing decades of the century, when social concerns about the working girl sexualized the image of young females. Men in Wonderland contributes to a growing interest in the nineteenth century's construction of childhood, sexuality, and masculinity, and illuminates their complex interconnections with a startlingly different light. Not only does it complicate the narratives of pedophilic desire that are generally used to explain figures like Ruskin and Carroll, but it offers a new understanding of the Victorian era's obsession with loss, its rampant sentimentality, and its intense valorization of the little girl at the expense of mature femininity.

Excerpt from The Complete Works of Theophile Gautier, Vol. 11: Militona, the Nightingales, Omphale, the Marchioness's Lap-Dog, Jack and Jill, the Thousand and Second Night, Elias Wildmanstadius, David Jovard, the Bowl of Punch Very different is the short, sweet tale called The Nightingales. Written for young people, and appear ing first in a publication intended for them, it was com posed in order to explain an engraving, - a common practice in those days, as Gautier has told us himself. But no one remembers the engraving, and everybody who has ever read The Nightingales keeps the quaint story in mind. It is a very delicate bit of work, written in a subdued tone, but none the less very telling. Gautier loved music, and in this brief sketch he has praised it as it deserves. The Marchioness's lap-dog is in another strain. This time it is the eighteenth century which has at tracted the author, and he has made a dainty little story out ofa mere trifle, with just enough indication of the licentiousness of the age to be in keeping with the model he followed, yet not enough of it to spoil what is really a deftly touched story of a man's whim and a woman's caprice. Omphale is purely fantastic; it does not pretend to be anything else. It belongs to the same class of story as The Mummy's Foot, Arria Marcella, and The Vampire. It is not as long as any Of these.
