This chapter traces the legacies of Romanticisms engagement with revolutionary politics through the changing trope of woman as wanderer in Frances Burneys The Wanderer (1814) and Charlotte Brontės Jane Eyre (1847). In these novels, the upheaval of national and personal revolution generates individual displacement from established geographical, societal and psychic settings. Burney and Brontė each interrogate the gendered dynamics of Romantic vagrancy, establishing the essential insufficiency of existing natural and social worlds to nurture their displaced heroines, and seeking alternative ordering principles for their heroines post-revolutionary futures. For Burney, this serves to envisage a fragile post-revolutionary world reconstituted with regard to an overarching external framework of divine justice. Brontė, however, extends her Romantic legacy of revolutionary wandering to inscribe a mode of rooted societal selfhood, one which nevertheless takes its shape from the contained desires of the individual. This suggests a means through which Victorian women writers could articulate constructions of post-Romantic and post-revolutionary futures grounded in the psychological interiority of the narrating subject.
