A Companion to Sensation Fiction

The Victorian era saw a huge proliferation of fiction, with novels finding the largest audience they had ever enjoyed. This comprehensive collection offers a complete introduction to sensation fiction, one of the most popular, and criticized, forms of the period.

Contributions from some of the best scholars from around the world place key authors and novels in their cultural and historical context, and bring to bear a range of perspectives to explore important related issues, including law, publishing history, poetry, theatre, visual art, race, and gender.

Examining both the pre and post-history of the genre, to situate it in the larger tradition of Victorian publishing and literature, this companion is the definitive guide to a hugely influential literary movement and the major topics in its production and reception.
