Abstract

Heritage is not the preserve only of the rich and powerful although the content of monument lists, public statuary and official histories and commemorations often give that impression. This paper is concerned with the heritage of the mundane struggle for survival of nameless ordinary people leading everyday lives. These are often commemorated not through official heritage channels but through the medium of literature with the novel being a political genre and thus, often subversive, unofficial heritage.
