The Victorian era was an important time for the development of science and the Victorians had a mission to describe and classify the entire natural world. Much of this writing does not rise to the level of being regarded as literature but one book in particular, Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, remains famous. The theory of evolution contained within the work challenged many of the ideas the Victorians had about themselves and their place in the world. Children's Books in the Victorian Era.

The Victorian era, as stated many times, was a period of change and transformation. It, therefore, formed a bridge between the history and the modern era. The books written during this time depict these changes and also the circumstances and all the aspects of daily living during those times. Novels came into existence in this era. Books were not called novels before this time, and the latter were called so because of the kind of writing, the stories and the kind of issues raised in these novels. A novel was thus named because it was new, hence the term novel.
Victorian Britain offered to the globe an economic structure of unique complexity. Victorian Literature and Finance is the first extended study to take seriously the relationships between literary forms and those more complex discourses of Victorian high finance.
In its definition and summary of current critical theories, the book will prove useful to all students of literature, not just those interested in the Victorian period. Highly recommended for all collections.

Worrying, as Francis O’Gorman shows in this refreshingly unconventional history, is a hard activity to pin down. Undoubtedly distressing for those who do it, but rarely classed as a pathology requiring therapy or medication, fretting often intrudes when we are doing other things. It is, as he puts it, a woodpecker-like tapping away at one’s day from inside the unobservable parts of the mind. O’Gorman sees this collective mental landscape as a direct descendant of the liberal rationalism of Victorian philosophers such as John Stuart Mill, who believed that happiness would result from well-mannered debate, the exercise of a grown-up human being’s capacity to reason.
Francis O'Gorman charts the emergence of our contemporary idea of worry in the Victorian era and its establishment, after the First World War, as a feature of modernity. For some writers between the Wars, worry was the "disease of the ag. Worryingexamines the everyday kind of worry-the fearful, non-pathological, and usually hidden questioning about uncertain futures.
