Here they are: Alfred Lord Tennyson (poet); Edward Bulwer-Lytton; William Makepeace Thackerey; Walter Scott (wrote St. Valentine's Day in 1828). Is that enough? Also, the Bronte's died in the 1840-1850's so they probably were writing in the 1830's weren't they?] I belong to a Classics book discussion group at our local Barnes and Noble bookstore. Usually we read English literature with occasional forays elsewhere. We recently read "The Red and the Black" by Stendhal, a book written circa 1830. And someone asked, "Who was a contemporary of Stendhal's from England?" This was after Jane Austen and before the Brontes. Sir Walter Scott was still alive, but was he still writing? Dickens published his first "Sketches by Boz" a few years later. Otherwise, we were completely at loss.
] And have any of you read "The Red and the Black." Most of us read it earlier and enjoyed the character of Julien Sorel more in our younger days. Is this a young person's book?
- Didn't George Sand write in the 1830's also? (nfm) Marie-Bernadette 01:10:45 6/30/98 (2)
