The Victorian Age in Literature


Join G. K. Chesterton in his evocative gallop through the great books of the nineteenth century. Meet the men who wrote them and feel the atmosphere they breathed.

Every insight remains as fresh as when it was written. With unfailing sympathy Chesterton assesses each writer in his thought and style, in his life and his influence, and leaves us hungry to return to the classics of prose and verse, better equipped to delight in all they contain of truth, goodness and laughter, but also more alert to any breath of mischief.

At the end of this short book the reader feels that he has read a thousand others of which he hardly knew the names before, and is determined to read a thousand more.
