ABSTRACT
The article discusses sensationalism in Victoria era literature and literary representations of domestic life. The author reflects on the subversion of social structures in realist domestic fiction due to rebellious heroines and the idea of a desirable home. The novel "The Heir of Redclyffe" by Charlotte Mary Yonge is analyzed in terms of its domestication of Gothic motifs and conflicts in domestic realism. The religious aspects and moral instruction of Yonge's novels are considered. Other topics include women in literature, abandonment and exile in the family, and the social criticisms on femininity of author Elizabeth Lynn Linton.
