First published in 1913, Outlines of Victorian Literature was co-authored by Professor Hugh Walker and his wife and was based upon the former's earlier and larger volume, The Literature of the Victorian Era. The aim here was to furnish a clearly ...
worded and accessible introduction to the subject of Victorian literature and to stimulate interest in the lives of the different writers and their works. The types of literature examined include novels and poetry, but also extend to works of biography, criticism, history, theology, philosophy and even science with a particular focus on the works of Charles Darwin. This volume will be of value to anyone wishing to know more about how Victorian literature was received and understood at the beginning of the twentieth century.
