A talk by Dr Douglas R.J. Small
Lecturer in Nineteenth Century Literature
Department of English, History, and Creative Writing at Edge Hill University

From the dark and tangled streets of London to perceived threats from abroad, the end of the Victorian era was an age of anxiety that produced monstrous characters like Count Dracula and Mr Hyde. But it was also a moment of modernity, of scientific advancement, and of optimism as the twentieth century drew ever closer.

In this talk, Dr Douglas Small explores how the most famous heroes and villains of the late-Victorian age captured the conflicts of the time to both terrify and reassure their readers.
