Favorite heroines of Victorian Literature:
1. Elizabeth Bennett (Pride & Predjudice) - undoubtedly, perfect - even Darcy loved her.
2. Dorothea Brooke (Middlemarch)- always knows right from wrong
3. Emma Woodhouse (Emma) - always makes me smile
4. Franny Price (Northanger Abby) - love her for her judgement
5. Maggie Tulliver (The Mill on the Floss) - who is always, always left out of these lists
