Summary/Abstract: The contemporary, multi-dimensional fascination with the Victorian past has been mirrored in a proliferation of so-called neo-Victorian novels. We witness a seemingly-increasing number of authors that participate in, and contribute to, this fascination by recreating the Victorian period in their fiction. The present article focuses on some of the major neo-Victorian rewritings and the ways in which they (re)-explore, (re)-construct or (re)-imagine Victorian fiction.
