about this item
Focusing on the moral tale as foremost among the new genres of literature that emerged during the late 18th century, Fleming examines both the narrative conventions of moral tales themselves and the way in which these conventions were adopted by Victorian novelists who had read and internalized the tales as children. He explores the rise of the moral tale, the moral tale comes of age: Maria Edgeworth and the romantic novel, discipline and narrate: the moral tale and the Newgate novel, Charles Dickens and the instructive monomaniac, and 1859 and after.
