Abstract:My dissertation details the relations between literary intellectuals and the new leisure form represented by the London music-hall. I analyze debates over the halls during the 1890s within the context of late Victorian debates on literary professionalism and the effort to establish an autonomous realm of the "Aesthetic." I detail encounters between literary investigators and the socially marginal groups represented on the music-hall stage, and examine how gender impacted the attempts of social actors to lay claim to London's public spaces.
