  • Introduction: "Narrative against Data"
    • Authors: Rosenthal J.
      Pages: 1 - 18
      Abstract: This introduction frames the principal questions of this special issue: the nature of data in criticism and the relation between data-driven literary criticism and more traditional forms of criticism. The suggestion throughout is that the current tension in critical practice can be better understood by turning to nineteenth-century narratives and their fraught attempts at encapsulating and representing data. Particular attention is paid to the means of representing data in literary criticism, particularly through visualizations. The essays in this special issue are then discussed, with emphasis on the possibilities and conceptual difficulties that come with the representation of large aggregates in novel form.

  • Slow Fire: Serial Thinking and Hardy's Genres of Induction
    • Authors: Williams D.
      Pages: 19 - 38
      Abstract: This essay considers the use of "serial thinking"—an approach to representation and cognition that emphasizes repetition, enumeration, and aggregation—in the work of Thomas Hardy. Examining his first novel, Desperate Remedies (1871), it connects Hardy's approaches to serial thinking with the discourse of Victorian logic (especially the work of John Venn) and links this early sensation novel to Hardy's later output. Serial representation operates in two modes in Hardy: one material, tactile, and affective (figuring long-run processes of wear, attrition, and change); the other discrete, rational, and numerical (depicting patterns of counting and aggregation). Serial thinking also speaks to the problematic generic identity of Desperate Remedies in Hardy's oeuvre and to broader difficulties of genre designation through its historical and formal relation to problems in inductive logic. The novel enacts in its figures for class thinking a generic identity that is by turns stable and dynamic. Hardy's intuitions about serial and class thinking, which draw on nineteenth-century logic's decision problems and its discourse of "sets" and "classes" and their "members," can be thus linked to questions of genre writ large. The essay concludes by connecting nineteenth-century images for the bounding and blurring of classes to similar figures in recent studies of genre. Considering the deeper historical relationship between generic thinking and the areas of logic that undergird later approaches to genre—both theoretical accounts and empirical studies, often using digital tools—can show how generic dynamism demands methods of reading that collaborate along different explanatory axes.

  • "I Know the Man": Evidence, Belief, and Character in Victorian Fiction
    • Authors: Baker G.
      Pages: 39 - 57
      Abstract: Focusing in particular on Wilkie Collins's The Law and the Lady (1875) and Anthony Trollope's Phineas Redux (1873), this essay examines the manner in which Victorian novels grapple with various forms of evidence, ranging from the forensic and detective knowledge of the police to a knowledge of another person's character that is often termed "belief." The author elaborates the complex role belief plays in British empiricist texts by John Locke and David Hume and in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century treatises on evidences directly influenced by empiricist philosophy, where one could distinguish what one might call a "belief-in-evidence" from a "belief-against-the-evidence." This essay then demonstrates how episodes of character witness in Victorian legal fictions become venues for addressing the value of belief in others and its complex participation in the attempt to discover truths. Belief, in these novels, is frequently more correct than the evidence marshaled by the police. That this is so often the case suggests an idealistic desire to imagine continuities and forms of knowledge more complete than those accommodated by the epistemology of detection.

  • The Enormity Effect: Realist Fiction, Literary Studies, and the Refusal to
           Count
    • Authors: Levine C.
      Pages: 59 - 75
      Abstract: This essay contends that the most canonical realist novelists refused both close and distant reading. The realist novel seems to go out of its way to avoid statistics, but at the same time it insists that we must move beyond attending to a few exceptional examples. The problem with too few cases is that we will miss the suffering that happens on a vast scale. But the problem with numbers is that they actually condense and compress affective experience. Thus the realist novel demands that we recognize the impossibility of knowing large numbers in any adequate way while still taking up the ethical and sometimes the political responsibility to try to cognize experience at a massive scale. The solution the realist novel develops is a discursive strategy that this essay calls the "enormity effect."

  • The Language of Chance and the Form of Phineas Finn
    • Authors: Grener A.
      Pages: 77 - 95
      Abstract: This essay examines the pervasive language of chance in Anthony Trollope's Phineas Finn (1869) and argues that the novel's competing models of probability reveal tensions in the bildungsroman form. Although Phineas's advancement has been read as demonstrating Trollope's investment in the "career" as the form of individual development, the characterization of Phineas as an adventurer—and the depiction of romantic and political outcomes in London as stochastic—reveal a causal disjunction between individual choice and the mechanisms of social progress. Parliament is the setting of both Phineas's individual development and the plot of social progress, but the novel's use of competing languages and models of probability to describe the movement of the two reveals an incommensurability of scale. While Phineas's personal choices draw on a model of probability that manages chance by focusing on "odds" and rational decision making, his encounters with statistics in his parliamentary duties demonstrate how models of aggregation that mitigate chance and randomness cannot be reconciled with or incorporated into individual experience. Thus this essay argues that the novel's form, including its peculiar resolution, does not represent a reconciliation of Phineas's private and public identities but rather reflects a frustrated attempt to coordinate the progress of the individual with the progress of the nation.

  • Narrative Form and Facts, Facts, Facts: Elizabeth Gaskell's Life of
           Charlotte Bronte
    • Authors: Allison S.
      Pages: 97 - 116
      Abstract: This essay places Elizabeth Gaskell's Life of Charlotte Brontë in the context of responses it provoked from contemporaries, including their retrospective rereadings of Jane Eyre. By 1857, the novel form had come a long way from its eighteenth-century origins in the roman à clef, but some parts of Gaskell's Life return to and invert that tradition, reading almost like a clef to Jane Eyre—so much so as to force a printed retraction and substantial revisions. Gaskell wrote the Life well after fictionality emerged as a concept distinct from history and journalism. Nevertheless, in its intersection with Jane Eyre, the Life reveals the traces of fictional realist convention in factual accounts and, conversely, shows how far the novel, fictional form par excellence, retained an aura of facticity.

  • Database and the Future Anterior: Reading The Mill on the Floss Backwards
    • Authors: Hensley N. K.
      Pages: 117 - 137
      Abstract: This article on temporality, reading, and narrative form shows how George Eliot's The Mill on the Floss stretches on the affordances of the novel to highlight the tension between structure and flow that characterizes any act of textual analysis. This tension within readerly method, elaborated by Roland Barthes in S/Z, has only sharpened since the literary humanities' digital turn. Eliot's famous surprise ending restarts the world-historical clock and seems to come from nowhere; yet it also seems slowly and inevitably to have been building all along. The novel's famous flood event, seen in light of the ambiguous textual details or "advance mentions" anticipating it, turns out to radicalize the formal or properly aesthetic tension between duration and event, sequence and structure, that animates structuralist method no less than certain varieties of distant or machine reading. On this reading, a theory of time as gradual development (flow) sits in tension with a model that imagines short, sharp transitions between discrete temporal periods (structures), one "step" and another. Like Barthes, Eliot aims to think in both synchronic blocks and linear flows simultaneously. She goes further to link this antinomy of narrative experience to the political-aesthetic problem of historical change and modernization itself. Eliot thus harnesses the resources of the novel form to challenge models of reading that work, as all digital methods must, on dechronologized textual objects like databases, textual corpuses, or (at smaller scales) sentences or lexias.

  • Response
    • Authors: Mitchell R.
      Pages: 139 - 152
      Abstract: Noting a key development that decisively distances the Victorian "crisis of information" from our own, namely, the emergence of a technical concept of information between the 1920s and the 1940s, Mitchell focuses on the efforts of this special issue's contributors to capture the uncanny nature of the relationship between data and information in the Victorian period and in our own informatic age. Mitchell underscores and seeks to expand on two strategies employed by contributors: on the one hand, the exploration of what Mitchell calls "unsecured" terms (that is, terms used in both the Victorian era and our own information age but which occupy either liminal or contested roles in both periods) and, on the other hand, the creation of metaconcepts that illuminate an aesthetic practice common to both periods. Mitchell illuminates the first strategy by focusing on the discussion of "belief" in several of the contributions to this special issue and suggests that this work might be expanded by connecting the contributors' accounts of belief and narrative in the Victorian era to the long, complex history of Bayesian approaches to probability. Mitchell illuminates the second strategy by expanding on Caroline Levine's metaconcept and brief history of "the enormity effect," drawing especially on Paolo Virno's discussion of the fate of the structuring principles of sublimity in our own contemporary moment of precarious labor and multitude.
