Authors of the 19th CenturyeBook - 2013
"From Romanticism to Realism, the 19th century saw a flourishing of literary movements, as well as the arrival of several now-revered luminaries on the literary scene. Authors experimented with new styles that elevated the novel as a significant literary form, while new techniques and themes were also introduced into poetry and drama. These compelling profiles examine the lives of some of the 19th century's greatest writers-Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and Leo Tolstoy, to name just a few-and reveal the remarkable stories behind the works they crafted."-- Provided by publisher.
