Back in the salad days of the British Empire, there was a Queen named Victoria. She defined an age in a way that few could do today, and certainly not for sixty years. While her writings are not represented in this fine online collection, it contains writings of many who flourished during her long reign. Bartleby.com recently placed the complete "A Victorian Anthology, 1837-1895" here, and visitors will be most delighted when they browse through its contents. Edited by one Edmund Clarence Stedman, this magnum opus contains 1274 works by 343 authors. It should be noted that the entire work is comprised of poems, so those seeking lines from Lord Jim or Martin Chuzzlewit may need to look elsewhere. Of course, those who are temped by the quatrains of Yeats, Arnold, or Rossetti will want to linger awhile.
