About

Overview

From Romanticism to Realism, the 19th century saw a flourishing of literary movements, as well as the arrival of several now-revered luminaries on the literary scene. Authors experimented with new styles that elevated the novel as a significant literary form, while new techniques and themes were also introduced into poetry and drama. These compelling profiles examine the lives of some of the 19th century’s greatest writers—Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and Leo Tolstoy, to name just a few—and reveal the remarkable stories behind the works they crafted.
