Excerpt from English Masterpieces of the Nineteenth Century The nineteenth century in England was a period of literary activity closely paralleling that of the Elizabethan Age. Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria both lent encouragement to writers, contributing to the great advancement of their nation along the highways of finer intellectual life. The severance between literature and contemporary existence, so frequently noticeable, is replaced in this era by close union between the actual and the ideal. The French Revolution and the American Revolution had overthrown certain forms of political tyranny, and the ideas which had animated the two rebellious nations were communicated to the English people by books, newspapers, the tales of travellers, and the poetical work of such men as Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, and Byron. Science stirred to intense activity, bringing before the world theories of the descent of man which made necessary a thorough reconstruction of men's opinions. Darwin, Huxley, and Herbert Spencer established with incontrovertible firmness the doctrines of Evolution. Political Economy began its career of benefit to the state in urging the consideration of practical questions in regard to labor.
