Marlena Marciniak is an assistant professor at the Institute of English, Opole University. She specializes in Yictorian fiction and culture, as well as gender studies, especially masculinity studies. She has published several book chapters and articles in academic journals on the Yictorian concepts of fatherhood, married life and małe homosocial relations, as well as on the nineteenth-century ideals of manliness. Her recent research interests include monstrous masculinities, subversive masculine activities and małe disability in the Yictorian period. Towards a New Type of Masculinity: The Ideal of Gentlemanly Masculinity in Yictorian Prose is her debut monograph.
The monograph entitled Towards a New Type of Masculinity: The Ideal of Gentlemanly Masculinity in Yictorian Prose may be of interest to literary scholars, academics and students pursuing research in Yictorian Studies, as it examines the concept of gentlemanly masculinity, which emerged as one of the most appealing and widespread models of Yictorian manliness. By drawing on sagę writing and contemporary novels Marlena Marciniak shows how the new definition of gentlemanliness, giving priority to noble character over noble origin, shaped both heterosocial and homosocial relations of Yictorian men. Her analysis reveals that the gentlemanly model was considerably feminized, thus it subverted the traditional, patriarchal construction of masculinity, so freąuently associated with the Yictorian period. Her book confirms that Yictorian masculinities constitute a fertile and stimulating field of study, which encourages further inąuiry into the intricacies of Yictorian literaturę and culture.
