This inspiring survey challenges conventional ways of viewing the Victorian novel.

  • Considers the relationship between the Victorian novel and historical, religious and bibliographic writing.
  • Features short biographies of over forty Victorian authors, including Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, and Robert Louis Stevenson.
  • Offers close readings of over 30 key texts, among them Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre (1847) and Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897), as well as key presences, such as John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress (Pt 1, 1676, Pt 2, 1684).
  • Also covers topics such as colonialism, scientific speculation, the psychic and the supernatural, and working class reading.
