      Pages in category "19th-century British short story writers" The following 70 pages are in this category, out of 70 total. This list may not reflect recent changes (learn more). With the recent advent of the cellular novel in Japan we see that the evolution of the novel has come full circle from the period we have been examining, Britain in the 19 th century. We have talked a lot about how female authors in the 19 th century, such as Charlotte Bronte and Elizabeth Gaskell, revolutionized literary forms by showing the point of view of commonplace female characters.   For Jan B. Gordon it facilitates the inclusion of a subversive oral culture to challenge the hegemonic, written one (see Gordon, Gossip and Subversion in Nineteenth-Century British Fiction: Echo's Economies [New York: St. Martin's Press, ]).
