Abstract

This study examines the rise or the fallen woman in the Victorian novel and her progress in the course of the century from a shadowy figure playing a minor role to a major character who stands at the center of attention. From a helpless victim condemned to an early death she becomes a heroine who lives and triumphantly prevails. The dissertation follows the chronological sequence of the novels looked at, and every chapter concentrates on a decade or so at a time.
