Summary:Using literature as a frame of reference, this program illuminates the quest for wealth and world dominance that spurred empire-building among 19th- and 20th-century European governments. Learn about poverty and oppression in the colonies and the rise of slums and intolerable working conditions in the cities of England and other nations. Gain insight into the social reform agendas of such diverse writers as Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Mark Twain, Paul Laurence Dunbar, and Karl Marx. The program explores Realism, the dominant literary style, and shows the emergence of psychological characterization in the works of Dostoyevsky and George Eliot.
