Summary
The English Novel in History 1840-1895 refocuses in cultural terms a particularly powerful achievement in Victorian narrative - its construction of history as a social common denominator. Using interdisciplinary material from literature, art, political philosophy, religion, music, economic theory and physical science, this text explores how nineteenth-century narrative shifts from one construction of time to another and, in the process, reformulates fundamental modern ideas of identity, nature and society
