The Portable Victorian Reader

Forsideomslag
Gordon Sherman Haight
Viking Press, 1972 - 658 sider
To meet the current approach to the study of literature, the selections in this anthology have been chosen and arranged for what they tell us of that surprisingly revolutionary period -- its social and political outlook, art, philosophy, customs -- as much as for their purely literary interest. Included are substantial, self-contained passages from thirty-seven British authors: novelists, essayists, humorists, scientists, writers on religion and education, writers of leaders for "The Times", letter-writers, even Queen Victoria herself. -- From publisher's description.
