This paper examines how writers during the the Victorian era, typically identified from the years 1832 through 1901, did not differ from the Romantic writers as much as the Romantic writers differed from their Restoration predecessors. It looks at how Victorian writers, surrounded by change and advancement, reflected attitudes in response to their circumstance and these attitudes varied and were as diverse as the ideas themselves and how often a common theme that can be seen in the literature of this period is that of the past. It shows how these writers recognized the incredible impact their work would have with the recollection of days gone by and whether clinging to the past fearfully or willing to remember but not let go and move forward, the Victorian writers contributed greatly by simply remembering anything at all.

From the Paper:

"Victorian literature is not only prominent, but it is also versatile because it ranges from sentimental fiction to he the fictional reworking of the ideologies that were in progress at the time. It could be asked if the Victorian writers exaggerated their history and if they did, by how much. Historical accounts can be balanced with history records, leaving the reader to enjoy the literature as it was written and how it was meant to be enjoyed as a piece of art. Art when England was on the brink of an industrial revolution probably makes it more insightful and interesting to the reader."
