Realism in literature
This book challenges basic assumptions about Victorian fiction, which was not always great, or even good, in the eyes of its critics. It was only in the late 1970s that literary critics constructed a prestigious version of British realism. This title examines criticism of Victorian novels since the 1850s and suggests how we can rethink our practices and perceptions about books we think we know.
