Dear C19th Novels,
I’m having technical issues getting those deathbed scenes on here for you all. For now, you can google-image the following — they’re not difficult to find on the Net [4/12 2:30pm, posted them now! ed]:
George Cattermole, ‘Death of Little Nell’ (1841)
I’m ‘collecting’ deathbed scenes in Victorian culture: we talked about the 7 or so such scenes in *Mary Barton* last week, and there are numerous in Dickens of course; any more suggestions gratefully received.
