Literature of the 1800s was dominated by the British/English connoisseurs. Period. Unlike never before, literature bloomed and blossomed in the 19th century Britain as English writers went on to produce historic novels that became precedents of the future of the literary world. Unlike their predecessors, novelists, writers and authors of 19th century Britain rose from the ordinary and challenged class system, gave a real view of the deplorable state of the working class, offered us our first taste of feminist literature, and created some unforgettable characters that have immortalized British literature and litterateurs. Be it Charles Dickens’ ‘Oliver Twist’, Thomas Hardy’s ‘Tess of the D’Ubervilles’ or Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice Adventure in Wonderland’, Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ or Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Treasure Island’, each of them and many more British authors took literature to an altogether new level with their masterpieces. Such has been the immense effect of the work of these novelists and writers that they have left a lasting imprint on everything from thereon. Discover an amazing feat accomplished by British writers during the 19th century through their body of work. Their sheer works of genius would leave you spellbound!
