Description: This book examines the interrelation of social class and its literary representation in Victorian Britain, focusing for the first time on the emergence of the lower middle class as a social and cultural phenomenon. It places the evolution of the lower middle class and its relation to other classes within the social structure of nineteenth-century England and within the historical context of changing perceptions of the idea of the gentlemen and the changing role of women, especially during the second half of the century. Arlene Young traces popular attitudes through the examination of novels, comic sketches, and contemporary nineteenth-century social commentaries.
