What were the common obsessions during the Victorian era as portrayed in literature, and to which spans of time do they apply?
The Victorian era saw several common themes, among them: -Romanticism -Social Reform -the Other A focus on innocence and nature (a part of Romanticism) as a reaction to industrialization took place between 1800 and 1820 as seen in Wordsworth's poem, "The Daffodils" (1803), and Coleridge's "Kubla Khan" (1816). Social Reform literature was most prevalent between 1840 and 1850, as exemplified by Charles Dickens (Oliver Twist, 1837-1839) and Elizabeth Gaskell (Mary Barton, 1848). Such authors focused on economic class, and directed attention to social ills. Literature highlighting "the Other," (such as vampires, in Stoker's Dracula 1897; and repression, in Stevenson's Jekyl & Hide 1886) was the most prevalent between 1880 and the end of the era. Such fantastical themes only thinly veiled Victorian fears about race and gender.
