Susanna - Censored by GoodReads British only, yes?


message 2: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Hmm, have included only British so far but I don't have any objection to expanding it.... :-)


message 3: by Sara (new)

Sara Shakouri There are two versions of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights on this list. Is there anyway to merge their votes, or remove the one with less votes?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I believe I successfully combined them.


message 5: by Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (last edited Dec 10, 2012 10:32AM) (new)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Much as it pains me to say this, the Sherlock Holmes omnibus edition should be taken off this list. Of the Holmes canon, 4 1/2 books (i.e., over 50%) were published after Queen Victioria's death:

The Return of Sherlock Holmes
The Valley of Fear
His Last Bow
The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes
,
as well as the final installments of
The Hound of the Baskervilles.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_of...

Only the canon's first four installments (Scandal in Bohemia, Sign of Four, Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes) are actually "Victorian" in the sense of first having been published (in their entirety) during Queen Victoria's lifetime.

A more relaxed view of the term "Victorian" could include anything prior to World War I in which the old social order is still intact.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The subtitle suggests strictness was intended for this list, though.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Susanna wrote: "The subtitle suggests strictness was intended for this list, though."

Yes, that's why I made the comment in the first place. There's no doubt the entire canon has a Victorian "feel."


message 9: by Nermin (new)

Nermin Should Dostoevsky be in this list?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Sarah - you want the foreign but correct period stuff on the list or not?


message 11: by Karen (new)

Karen Sense and Sensibility is not a Victorian novel. It was published in 1812 and she died in 1817, well before Queen Victoria was even born.


message 12: by Rosa (last edited Dec 24, 2016 03:23PM) (new)

Rosa Remove the Jane Austen books this instant. I'm serious. Not even funny!! And Edwardian is not the same as Victorian.
