Were Victorian novels really the soap operas of their day? No!
Storylines in such soaps inevitably focus on relationships, love, loss, marriage and minor “tragedies”. As the narrative thread is required to be unending, with no extreme actions or noticeable resolution, various interlocking and interchangeable themes recur. We all know what these are as we see them every week.

Victorian fiction does not conform to this type. Authors aimed at a mixed readership. With only a few exceptions they were serialized in monthly instalments. Additionally, they have a recognisable beginning (exposition), followed by development, various crises and a final resolution.
