This chapter discusses the romance revival. It looks at the place of romance as a secure antithetical literary category. It identifies the developments in publishing that helped the romance genre rise during the final decades of the late nineteenth-century, the developments that were related to the causes of the penny dreadful's continuous growth. The chapter also looks at a particular model in educational discourse that helped identify the link between evolution and the reading habits of children.
