This article discusses the topos of domestic interruption, which lays bare the temporal politics of the nineteenth-century middle-class home. It was a commonplace in the nineteenth century that women’s time in the home was interruptible and porous. When Victorian writers described everyday interruptions, they showed the contrast between plot time and an underlying marginalised domestic time.
