An era marked by sweeping change, the age of Queen Victoria was a time of rapid modernization as well as social and political upheaval, which is reflected in its literature. Bridging the gap between the Romantic and Modern traditions, Victorian writers held a mirror to society, chronicling the tensions between the prosperity enjoyed by a few, and the poverty and suffering endured by so many. Filled with captivating stories by the most iconic writers of the era (including Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, Henry James, and Elizabeth Gaskell) this collection is a fitting companion to the other titles in our bestselling Gothic Fantasy series. Peter Garratt (foreword) is a lecturer in the Department of English Studies at Durham University, with research interests in Victorian literature and culture; literature, science and medicine; and the cognitive turn in the humanities. His book Victorian Empiricism was published in 2010. He has published on Victorian writers such as John Ruskin, George Eliot, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Charles Dickens.
