Elisabeth Jay. As an expatriate Scots woman, Mrs Margaret Oliphant (1828-97) started her prolific and accomplished writing career at three removes from the centre of Victorian literary life. Widowed early, and left with not only her own children, but two brothers, a nephew and two nieces to support, she became keenly aware of the discrepancy between society's assumptions about woman's role and her own position as a female breadwinner in the male-dominated world of nineteenth-century publishing.

Ruth Bernard Yeazell writes: Even by the standards of her contemporaries Margaret Oliphant’s productivity was phenomenal. His obituary hovered between contempt for helpless female fecundity – what he unkindly termed Oliphant’s ‘uncontrolled flood of fiction’ – and genuine awe at the sheer scale of her achievement: ‘few writers of our time have been so organised for liberal, for – one may almost put it – heroic production. Even as James speculated on how ‘her remarkable life, and still mor. emarkable character’ might ‘lend itself to vivid portraiture’, he recognised how the very magnitude of her production would militate against the prospect of a biography.

As a Scottish woman and expatriate, Mrs. Oliphant (1828-97) began her prolific writing career removed in many ways from the center of Victorian literary life. Widowed early, she became keenly aware of the discrepancy between society's assumptions about women's roles and her own position as a female breadwinner in the male-dominated world of nineteenth-century publishing. This lucid and comprehensive biography considers the way in which a particular woman writer perceived her own life, and the wider question of whether women writers have been well-served by the mythological structures of male biography.
