(p.1) Introduction
The Victorian Eighteenth Century

B. W. Young

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the importance of understanding the period immediately preceding the Victorian era for gaining a better understanding of Victorians. The organization of the book is then described, which begins with the contribution of an author born in the mid-1790s, namely Thomas Carlyle, and ending as the consciously Victorian generation began to die out in the 1930s.

Keywords:   Victorian culture, Victorians, Thomas Carlyle, Leslie Stephen
