The Victorian Novel, Service Work, and the Nineteenth-Century Economy, Hardback Book

The Victorian Novel, Service Work, and the Nineteenth-Century Economy Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Nineteenth-Century Writing and Culture series

Description

This book offers a much-needed study of the Victorian novel's role in representing and shaping the service sector's emergence.

Arguing that prior accounts of the novel's relation to the rise of finance have missed the emergence of a wider service sector, it traces the effects of service work's many forms and class positions in the Victorian novel.
