In class this week, we read and discussed many literary works centering around the Victorian time period. My initial understanding of this era was pretty basic. To my knowledge, the Victorian age was a period in history with beautiful furniture, portrait paintings, and king and queens. After reading the texts assigned, I began to acknowledge many other ideas and contributions made as a result of the time, including religious doubts, exquisite art, modern invention, and politics. Overall, the texts and class discussions were a great eye-opener for me on The Victorian Age.
