19th Century Literature

The group began by looking at all the works of Dickens, turned to a volume of each of the Brontes and have now discovered the great variety of novels published in the Nineteenth Century. Recently the group has read books by Mark Twain, Thomas Hardy, Sir Walter Scott and Jane Austen. The Nineteenth Century has produced so many fine books. We take our time reading the books, some of them might seem intimidatingly long. At our monthly meetings we often watch a film adaptation together, interestedly comparing that with the original. Recently we have spent time looking at the writers' life and times, and how that influenced their work. There are some wonderful writers to explore and discuss, and the group contribute their own thoughts on the characters, plots and circumstances. It is a fun journey.
