Teresa and this was a question in January 2007 teens met exam also there is reference from William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night in Twelfth Night the crown say is that by swaggering I could never thrive for the rain it raineth every day and the same line has been quoted in this normal husband other than the middle March George Eliot has written so many other novels out of which mill on the floss is important mill on the floss is a story of a brother and sister named Maggie to liver unconscionable and in the end we find that there's a very important line which says that in their death they do good United and this has also been asked in that exam several times so you must read the summary of Middlemarch and been on the force other than this George Eliot has also written a very important historic novel called Ramona the novel is based on the story of Italian Renaissance but this novel was not at all popular during George Eliot's time and it was a complete failure so you must remember you must not read the summary or formula but at least remember that was a historic novel written by George Eliot and it was not at all popular during the times the fourth important to Victorian writer is Charlotte grunting Charlotte Bronte has written this beautiful work Jane Eyre Jane Eyre subtitles and autobiography this is a novel which is very important from feminist point of view because it's has her own who asserts herself as a true feminist character she says in one of the chapters of the novel that I am NOT an angel and I will not be one till I die I will be myself also towards the end Jane herself addresses the region saying that reader I buried him okay so this is how the name novel ends and the ending line reader I married him is very important from their point of view also you must remember that this novel is important due to several characters who are the part of this novel why is mr. Brocklehurst mr. Brocklehurst is a smell instructor who uses religion as a medium to justify through valid there is another important character named Bertha Mason Bertha Mason has inspired several other writers who have written so many other works on this character Bertha Mason one writer is Jean rice she has written this beautiful work called by its accuracy which is a prequel to Jane Eyre also there is another important writer Suzanne Gilbert who has written an essay mad woman in an ethic which is based on the character of Bertha Mason so these are the things which make this novel very important from that point of view there are several other novels written by Charlotte Bronte namely professor when a it should name they are not so important but you should remain certain important characteristics of those novels as they have been asked in net exam several times so this is all about Charlotte Bronte now let's move to another important Victorian writer the next important Victorian writer is Emily Bronte Emily Bronte has written this beautiful work buthe ring Heights buidling Heights is a story of Catherine and Heathcliff had it is a story which is driven by passion and revenge or Matthew armor has praised this work saying that it beautifully portrays grief passion and payments also at the same time you must remember that the story employs frame narrative the story opens with a man named Lockwood and the opening scene is very important because the man is sleeping and in the dream he dreams about Catherine who is pushing the windowpanes and she is trying to get into the room saying that let me in let me in so the opening scene is important the characters are not so important from that point of view because they have not been asked in an exam step now there are so many characters in this novel but you should at least remember the basic plotline in order to attempt the questions wisely next important Victorian writer is Elizabeth gasping Elizabeth Gaskell has written a book not in sound this work is very important because it talks about the Dee Berenson harsh effect of industrialization the work was inspired by the writings of Thomas currently Thomas Reilly is another Victorian essayist who's writing in the same period and has inspired Charles Dickens an Elizabeth Gaskell this was the Austen UGC net exam also you must remember that the basic plot of north and south

are several other novels which must be read in detail if you are preparing for UGC net namely we have made the Casterbridge the subtitle of Mayor of the Casterbridge is life and death of man of character and there's a very very important line in this novel which says that happiness is but an occasional episode in the general drama of pain and this would ask the new G C net exam that this line is taken from which Norman also you must remember that this novel is important because in this novel the central character sells his own wife the protagonist tells us who owned by unknowingly so basically the normal deals with how a man's choice affects his life the second important normally which must be read is Tess of the d'Urbervilles Tess of the d'Urbervilles talks about the moral sexual morals during the Victorian period also there are certain scenes which are very important the scene when test writes a letter and slides angel is not able to read the letter because the letter gets in gets under the carpet that scene is very important also it is important to know that s is a noble which normally talks about the Victorian society but also talks about the condition of female and how females would treated during Victorian society the third important novel is Jude the Obscure due to obscure is important normal because here June the central character is compared to a character from
