Why are prequels and sequels to novels and films eagerly snapped up by their audiences? One reason is that they allow us to continue experiencing vivid characters in fictional worlds that grow in complexity and fascination. Victorian novelists too created complex and fascinating fictional worlds, often in long individual novels that appeared in monthly installments. We will read two such novels, Dickens's Little Dorrit and Eliot's Middlemarch. Both are quite long, but the syllabus will give you time to enjoy them. Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights will join them, reminding us that memorable fictional worlds can come in smaller packages. These are three of the greatest novels written in the Victorian era, or in any other.
