ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights regarding the Victorian novel fiction. The author suggests the readers of the Victorian novel to read the novel "Poor Miss Finch," by Wilkie Collins. She refers Collin's novel as an excellent example of the cross-over genre, which the author's exuberant imagination throws up some pretty odd combinations of protagonists and stretches the long arm of coincidence to the point of dislocation.
