Sex is there in the Victorian novel-it’s just not there in the way we might recognise it in contemporary literature. Does literature represent sexuality in a way that Victorian society can’t? That’s a really good question. In the Victorian period, there’s intense anxiety and fear about sexual contagion and impropriety-bad behaviour from aristocrats (usually wealthy, older men) with young women, who don’t have parents to look after them.
