    Charlotte Bronte for the fact that I loved all of her novels, and Gaskell's Life of Charlotte Bronte. The novels are wonderful forays into the early/mid 19th century, and tackle so many different...

    Charlotte Bronte used a fictional landscape when writing Jane Eyre. Places like Lowood School, Gateshead, and Thornfield Hall don't actually exist. You could say it allows the reader to pick their...

    There's a great amount of ironic freedom when I think about the poetic process. I like free form, but I feel most at home when I'm working with poetic forms. They give me a way to shape my often...

    Great suggestions kiki1982. I do think that the field of Victorian marriage has been WAY overdone. Every Victorianist I've had for a professor has been hellbent on being the one who refreshes...

    My muse usually strikes when I've just watched a fantastic movie, read a great book or essay, or after a great night out with my two best friends. I've always written my best work after any of the...

    Dear Reader

    I am no bird and no cage ensnares me,
    Even though dear Reader, I married Him.
    All was perfect, our life I could foresee.
    I knew our love true, and not born of a whim.

    Yeah, Wickham and Willoughby are "practically interchangable"--great point! I also think that Elizabeth Bennet and Elinor Dashwood are pretty similar in their stubborness to stick to their ideals,...

    Well, you could focus on Dickens, Eliot, Trollope, Thackeray, and Charlotte Bronte. I feel like they were the most popular novelists of the time. Of course, there are the late authors such as Wilde,...

    So long as I'm not at work or class, and I've gotten my assignments and creative writing "done", pretty much all the time. I read on the bus and train, on my breaks during work, and while I'm...

    If you still want to go with Wolf's point, which I think is a great idea, be as creative as you want to be when writing your essay the first time around. It's kind of like brainstorming while writing...

    DanPD,

    Being someone who aspires to teach Victorian Literature within the next 3 years, I'm looking forward to reading your ideas. I look forward to the subsequent feedback as well!

    Some context would be nice. I'm assuming "Hardy" to be Thomas Hardy and "Yeats" to be W.B. Yeats? If so, that helps me quite a bit. Also, who is the "them" that Larkin refers to?

    The first of Trollope's Palliser novels doesn't disappoint as the borders of the domestic and political spheres of Victorian England become blurred. In his autobiography, the prolific author mentions...
