This is the classic age of English literature, and of the penny dreadful: Sir Creator/WalterScott, Creator/JaneAusten and Creator/CharlesDickens, but also ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'', ''Literature/VarneyTheVampire'', the first SherlockHolmes novel, ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', and the earliest ScienceFiction--to say nothing of the maudlin numbers that funded Creator/BenjaminDisraeli's political career. It is also the last time when books dominated popular entertainment, although many of these "books" were originally serialised in magazines, such as The Strand, Blackwood's etc.
