The swagger of vulgar villainy, the lisp of genteel imbecility, and the free and easy manner of Wapping, are now quite the rage in the Elysian fields of romance. (Whipple, 1848, p. 354) The title of this chapter names two incommensurate bodies: nineteenthcentury fiction and the canon. The first is unwieldy, almost monstrous, in its proportions; an estimated 60,000 novels were published between 1855 and 1890 alone (Maunder, 2005, p. 20). Such figures, moreover, do not take into account the explosion of serialized fiction within the growing number of popular periodicals launched during the same period.
With a plethora of materials to choose from, it may be helpful to identify the criteria that informed my choice but which might also be employed in defence of an alternative selection. In the first place, Oliphant’s review includes examples of what are identified as both “high” and “low” literature. This, in itself, is not unusual but her determination to “make as distinct a separation as the printer’s skill can indicate between the lower and the higher ground” (p. 275), aids the students in their first attempts to distinguish the qualities attributed to each category.
Such a way of reading could not take account of the contexts of production (social, cultural, political) and so removed itself from a “properly” historical account. This kind of argument seems to me to be flawed on several accounts. First, it has to be asked, can one ever recover the histories that make up a text? Is it ever possible to reconstruct the totality of history out of which a text appears, and which that text then mediates through its own encoded signs of its historicity? The answer is no; not only is a totality impossible, there is also no direct access to another period, the forms of its thought, its cultural practices, and so on.
