  • Cultural and intellectual contexts - religion, psychology, science, the state, and empire - are explored
  • Sub-genres and narrative forms, including short fiction, realism, the Bildungsroman, the historical novel, and Gothic fictions are discussed
  • Challenges conventional histories of the nineteenth-century novel by starting in the 1820s rather than the 1830s
