Great Expectations: Representations of Pregnancy in the Victorian Novel

Part of: In Pursuit of Knowledge - Spring

Course description

Pregnancy in Victorian texts is everywhere—and seemingly nowhere. Female characters give birth (that is, babies appear) but are these women ever represented as pregnant? In an era of restraint in bodily representation, how did authors suggest that their female characters were expecting? Victorian literature experts Mary Elizabeth Leighton and Lisa Surridge will explore this topic with reference to both text and image in well-known Victorian novels. Bring your own examples of pregnant Victorian heroines and join in the discussion!
