Abstract

Though typically invoked in legal writing for their portrayals of criminal trials and judicial failings, Victorian authors also probed a more subtle aspect of the law: the interrelationship of privacy and intellectual property. In their novels, this paper argues, these authors treated literary creations as uniquely private expression and used copyright-and the formal control it furnishes over publication-as a model for understanding privacy.
