overview of the subject of the adaptation of nineteenth-century British works, as
well as examinations into the creation of adaptations and their use in the
classroom. Although a wide range of critical approaches will be considered,
the emphasis should be on what particular adaptations reveal about the ways in

The False God "Favourable Chance" or "Lady Luck?": The Discourse on Gambling in England

Gambling has existed in British literature since Chaucer and before, yet the discourse on gambling exploded in Victorian England. Why was gambling such a divisive topic in the 19th century? High church, low church, secular elite, middle class: each faction opposed games of chance, but for widely disparate reasons. Where did the conflict begin? Why did the debate erupt in the Victorian age? Where has it led since? Papers could approach gambling from literary, historical, cultural, social, and/or philosophical perspectives.
