If science fiction serves primarily an interrogative function, "then it is destined to disappear as a separate form, becoming in effect a subdivision of the novel of ideas" (Parrinder 31). The gripping plots of these novels involved scandalous events including murder, adultery, bigamy, fraud, madness, and sexual deviance often perpetrated by seemingly moral and upright individuals in familiar domestic settings. In other words, regardless of whether the meaning of comprised becomes completely identical with the meaning of composed, the idea of “comprised” will still exist—for as long as people can remember (and that’s the rub).

The module topics will be as follows: The intellectuals and artists of the age had to deal in some way with the upheavals in society, the obvious inequities of abundance for a few and squalor for many, and, emanating from the throne of Queen Victoria (1837–1901), an emphasis on public rectitude and moral propriety.
