ABSTRACT
An essay is presented that argues the works of English novelist Charlotte M. Yonge that are concerned with novel writing and novel reading. It highlights the reputation of Yonge on reactionary conservatism. It cites the novel "The Heir of Redclyffe" that connects the Gothic novels of the post-Romantic Medievalism and pre-Raphaelitism of the mid-Victorian era and the Romantic period. The guiltless pleasure offered by the novel to the readers is also emphasized.
