Victorian Literary Cultures: Studies in Textual Subversion

English | November 1, 2016 | ISBN: 161147664X | EPUB | 218 pages | 1 MB

For some late nineteenth-century British novelists, subversion was a central aspect of their writerly existence. Although”or perhaps because”most Victorian authors composed their works for a general and mixed audience, many writers employed strategies designed to subvert genteel expectations. In addition to using coded and oblique subject matter, such figures also hid their transgressive material in plain sight. While some writers sought to critique, and even destabilize, their society, others juxtaposed subversive themes and aesthetics negatively with communal norms in hopes of quashing progressive agendas.
