Summary This volume charts one of the most significant and exciting periods in the history of the genre: the 19th century. Opening with the decade in which Scott's work helped inaugurate the three-volume novel, and in which many narrative genres, conventions, and preoccupations associated with Victorian fiction first emerged, it traces how these forms developed and changed, as the novel established itself at the centre of British national culture. It includes sections on book history, on major authors, and on the varieties of fiction and range of narrative modes during the period
