The Fallen Woman in the Nineteenth-Century English Novel Hardback
by George Watt
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: The Nineteenth-Century Novel series
A sympathetic view of the fallen women in Victorian England begins in the novel.
First published in 1984, this book shows that the fallen woman in the nineteenth-century novel is, amongst other things, a direct response to the new society.
Through the examination of Dickens, Gaskell, Collins, Moore, Trollope, Gissing and Hardy, it demonstrates that the fallen woman is the first in a long line of sympathetic creations which clash with many prevailing social attitudes, and especially with the supposedly accepted dichotomy of the `two women'. This book will be of interest to students of nineteenth-century literature and women in literature.
