Publisher Description

"I was born a Victorian; and sympathise not a little with the serious Victorian Spirit." In this engaging and extremely personal account G K Chesterton expounds his views on Victorian literature. Many of his opinions reflect the conventions of the age; however of the Victorian novel he refreshingly comments "it is an art in which women are quite beyond controversy". Equally uncompromising about poets and poetry he does not hesitate to call Tennyson "a provincial Virgil". This book is an important landmark in our understanding of an age which produced some of Britain's most widely enjoyed literature.
