Authors Of This Time

Literature History in the Industrial Revolution The start of a new revolution brought upon renowned authors that spoke beyond their generations, and started their own literary movements. During the middle and late 18th century, the Romanticism movement was born in England. Author William Wordsworth expressed the dynamic form of poetry derived from the lyrical period “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” in everyday conditions. The Romanticism period was also a start for more in depth writings in mystery, adventure, fantasy and gothic romance (in the U.S. gothic from Edgar Allen Poe). The next literary period during the Industrial revolution was French Realism, bringing authors like Charles Dickens and Geroge Elliot. The Realism movement (also in art) despicted actual events and realistic situations in writings that focused closely on the lives of the poor and working classes. (Romantistis vs. Naturalists writers.)

Why Was Literature Important?Literature movements and advances was important during the industrial revolution because it told aloud the stories of industry workers, familes and the oppressed of how they thought of the injusticies they faced. Bold authors like Charles Dickens had used their craft to dispict the harsh working conditions in lchild labor, education and the effects on family values. ("Oliver Twist" despicted a boy who cleaned chimmney sweeps, and described how he thought about being poor and staying there). Because of their voices the society and government began to change their laws to help children, woman, and working conditions during the Industrial Revolution for all.
