Details

Evangelicalism is widely acknowledged to have played a major role in the socio-political life of Victorian Britain but little has been written about the influence of this pan-denominational religious movement on nineteenth-century literary culture. My talk will explore the methodological questions that face those of us who want to examine the influence of evangelicalism on the Victorian novel. For the limited number of scholars who have worked in this area, the starting point has often been George Eliot. But while characters such as Mr Bulstrode and Dinah Morris offer plenty of material and moments of insight, they lead, I argue, to a methodological dead end rather an interpretative key.
