This chapter introduces the Victoriana genre, first examining The Great Victorian Collection, which explores the late twentieth-century desire to know and possess the Victorian past through its remains. It then shifts to writing about the Victorian period, and presents the five chapters that discuss Victorian literature and culture through the perspective of modern interpreters. The chapter states that the following chapters discuss concerns about class, race, empire, and gender, and the political and cultural results of Victoriana.

Keywords:   Victoriana, Victorian past, writing, literature, culture, modern interpreters, political results, cultural results
