Wuthering Heights - World's Best Edition

Historical Context - The Victorian Era

The Victorian Era

The Victorian era was the period of Queen Victoria's reign, from 20 June 1837 until her death on 22 January 1901.

The era followed the Georgian period (and Regency Period ) and preceded the Edwardian period

From a historical point of view, in terms of moral sensibilities and political reforms, the period can arguably be said to have begun with the passing of the Reform Act of 1832.

Ideologically, the Victorian era witnessed resistance to the rationalism that defined the Georgian period and an increasing turn towards romanticism and even mysticism with regard to religion, social values, and arts.

Religiously, there was a strong drive for higher moral standards. Indeed, moral standards improved very dramatically, especially for the middle class. As will be explained, this resulted in the idea of the typical Victorian - upstanding, moral, working to better him/herself and working towards the greater good for all society, in and outside of the empire.

From this stand point, term 'Victorian Morality' is often used to describe the people and the belief system of the era - this encompassed sexual proprietary, hard work, honesty, thriftiness, a sense of duty and responsibility towards the less well-off who deserved help.

The negative aspects of this typical 'Victorian personality' has also led to Victorians be characterized as stodgy, stuck up, preachy and stoic.

In England itself, there was an increasing shift towards social and political reform, in real terms. Indeed, when Victorians spoke about justice, ending poverty or child-labor and about improving the quality of life, they meant it and they meant it not just for their own country.

Other notable elements of typical Victorian Era people included:

Moral values such as Sabbath observance, responsibility, charitably charity, discipline in the home, and self-examination for the smallest faults and needs of improvement.

Historians continue to debate the various causes of this dramatic change and the 'creation' of the Victorian morality. Some emphasize the strong reaction against the French Revolution (1789 onwards). There was also the powerful role of the evangelical movement among religious organizations of the time and factions inside the established Church of England. These religious and political reformers set up organizations (with growing number of followers) that monitored behavior and pushed for government action.

Class Structure

In terms of this shift, between 1780 and 1850 the English ceased to be one of the most aggressive, brutal, rowdy, outspoken, riotous, cruel and bloodthirsty nations in the world and became one of the most inhibited, polite, orderly, tender-minded, prudish and hypocritical.

Among the higher social classes, there was less gambling, horse races, obscene theatres and prostitution. The debauchery of aristocratic England in the early 19th century simply disappeared.

In England itself, politics became increasingly liberal with shifts in the direction of gradual political reform and industrial reform.

The two main political parties during the era were the Whigs/Liberals and the Conservatives, and by the end of the Victorian Era, the Labour Party had formed as a distinct political entity.


The problem with the classification of "Victorian literature" is the difference between early works and later works of periods, the later works said to have more in common with the writers of the Edwardian period. Many writers straddle this divide.

Victorian literature is preceded by Romanticism and Realism and Modernism, and in some way can be said to be a mixture of both schools of literature and arts. It could be called a fusion of romantic and realis
