    Selected Publications

    Amy R. Wong is currently working on a book project, 'Victorian Talk: Human Media and Literary Writing in the Age of Mass Print," which argues that the circulation of mass print during the second half of the nineteenth century was accompanied by an increased interest in the literariness of everyday talk. Recently published or forthcoming peer-reviewed articles include: "Town Talk and the Cause Célèbre of Robert Browning’s The Ring and the Book," Modern Philology 113.4 (2016); "Arthur Conan Doyle's 'Great New Adventure Story': Journalism in The Lost World," Studies in the Novel 47.1 (2051): 60-79; and "The Poetics of Talk in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island," SEL Studies in English Literature 1500-1900 54.4 (2014): 901-922.
