Illegitimacy in Literature: Victims & Villains


For centuries, illegitimacy was a thorny issue for everyone except authors and dramatists. The shame of a child born outside wedlock was a gift for writers requiring drama. As a result, there are oodles of books with illegitimate children in them.

Explore the strife and hard times of illegitimate folk in Peyton Place, Bleak House, the World According to Garp and many more gripping books.
