Victorian Period Overview
Art and Literature

With regard to literature, writers such as Dickens, Sir Walter Scott and the Bronte sisters brought the novel up to its fullest potential.

Dickens wrote on a broad range of themes and in a variety of styles, from comedy to tragedy. He wrote of Victorian society--exposing social controversies, the faults of the legal system, dangers to public health, the horrors of factory employment, to the scandals in private schools, corruption in government, and the miseries of prostitution.

Jane Austen, another great writer of the period, depicted day-to-day life from its environment and the social classes.
