My only real experiences with Victorian Literature are from reading Jane Eyre on my own and A Christmas Carol in an English class. Due to my limited exposure, I don’t have a complete grasp on what the literature truly is. What are some common themes and threads? What are the characteristics that these books possess? I know the time period of which the literature was written in, which leads me to think of science vs. religion and issues of class, but after that I don’t have much knowledge. I am excited to learn about the characteristics of Victorian literature and what it’s made up of.
