Reading the Victorians reveals some surprising things about the nineteenth century, and about many elements of modern-day society. Queen Victoria's reign (1837-1901) brought industrialisation, urbanisation, scientific innovation, the growth of the British Empire and major political reform. This was also an age of artistic creativity, optimism and humour. Literature in many different forms was at the heart of these developments. This course explores how Victorian literature was both product of its age and agent of change, and examines the work of such writers as Bronte, Dickens, Eliot, Gaskell and Kipling.
