This book identifies and traces bankruptcy as an archetypal experience of the Victorian age and as a major metaphor in the language, imagery, and structure of the Victorian novel. With reference to selected works by Eliot, Bronte, Gaskell, Dickens, and Thackeray, it presents the range of symbolic meanings of the bankruptcy metaphor.
