Welcome to victorian_novel. Our community is honored to receive the pleasure of your company. Please proceed to the drawing room to join the conversation about the works, lives, and world of the Victorian novelists. That includes discussions about Victorian poetry and drama, as well as non-English writers and literatures which also flourished during the 19th century. We trust that your visit to our community will be agreeable and rewarding. We do not insist upon protocol and ceremony, so feel free to launch boldly into your literary debates. There is no place in this community, however, for charlatans and miscreants who intend to abuse, defame, or otherwise harass other members. Troublemakers are strongly advised to ply their trade elsewhere.
