The aim of this study is to analyse the Victorian novel and its rewritings that are produced in the line of Neo-Victorian movement within postmodern literature, in relation with theories on time and space. The novels at the focus of the study are Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations (1861); Peter Carey’s Jack Maggs (1997); and Lloyd Jones’ Mister Pip (2006). Theoretical background of the study presents a survey of the forms of perception, production and representation of time and space, starting from the nineteenth century and reaching to the twenty first century. The analysis chapter portrays a study of the continuity and transformation of the Victorian novel, culture and methods in postmodern rewritings, over concepts of industrialisation, city and crime.
