Beschreibung:

Reveals how the literary voice of the Victorian age gives expression to a culminating crisis of the Western conscience. This work demonstrates how the power of Victorian literature lies in its gift of asking questions about society and the individual, democracy and industrialism, the existence of God, and the purpose of human life.
