I've just posted this at the Victoriana Group but I thought I'd post it here as well, to be sure.

I wonder if anybody can recommend a book which needs to fit quite tight description.

I have to analyse a literary text (or several texts) for an essay. Initially, I thought about comparing some of the novels of the Brontë sisters with each other, especially Wuthering Heights
and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, both of which I love and show several similarities (issues of gender, etc.). However, I am now thinking that if I want to write about questions of sex and gender, it might be more to the point to compare one of these two books to another one of a British male author from the same period, which might yield some more interesting contrasts. Of course, a novel dealing with a similar topic would be great. Any suggestions, anyone?
