The Victorian Writers

The Victorian Era is from 1837-1901, the years of Queen Victoria's Reign as Queen of England when the sun didn't set on the British Empire. However, the diversity of styles, themes, and very interesting personalities bely the monarchy's influence on the writer's minds.
How many British and American poets and writers do you recognize?


Where is Poe? Twain? or Robert Louis Stevenson? How about H.G. Wells? One of the Bronte sisters,
Dickens, Louis May Alcott, Kipling, Oscar Wilde. Emily Dickenson, Walt Whitman, Tennyson, who do I spy with my little eye?
