Orality and Literacy -

Issue 18 - 2014

This issue, guest edited by James Emmott and Tom F. Wright, examines the complex literary and historical relationships between voice, sound, and print cultures in the nineteenth century. The articles gathered here consider the legacy of Walter Ong, political speech and the novel, spoken-word recording and poetry, heredity and the phonograph, popular fiction and radical speech-making, gossip and communal orality, and the fusions of oratory and reading in mid-century campaigning.
