This volume continues the story of English literature through most of the Victorian period--a period that in religion and politics, science and technology, sociology, social life, and its physical environment, witnessed the often painful development of modern England. Paul Turner studies not
only traditional genres like poetry, drama, and history, but also scientific and technical writing, art criticism and religious controversy, biography, autobiography, travel books, and books for children. With over 170 authors discussed, the book is a complete survey of the field as seen in the
light of present-day scholarship, and against the context of classical and established precedents. Also included is a chronological table of contemporary events, historical background, and a bibliography.
