Description

In her time Charlotte Yonge (whose publications span the precise years of Victoria's reign) was as popular as Dickens. Her novels reflect her close involvement with John Keble, inaugurator of the Oxford Movement, and record every stage and detail of the Movement throughout the century at parish level, and how it was received by the middle-classes in a rapidly-changing society. In the light of recent biographical discoveries, published and unpublished letters, non-fiction material such as her articles in the "Monthly Packet", and consequent re-reading of Charlotte Yonge's novels, this study reveals the pervasiveness of the Oxford Movement in society.
