wrong ones first so the first one is Sir

Philip Sidney's Arcadia Arcadia means

the full name was the Countess of

Pembroke's elk area it is a long prose

work by Sir Philip Sidney and it was

written towards the end of sixteenth

century so this is the first English

example of prose Estoril romance which

was imitated by various English authors

for about 200 years the story related in

Arcadia in the midst of pastorals

surrounding where everything is possible

it's long enough to cover 20 modern

novels but its main attraction lies in

its style which is highly political and

exhausting one word is used again and

again in different senses that means as

fun until it's all meanings are

exhausted it is also full of pathetic

fallacy which means establishing the

connection between the pearance of

nature with the mood of the artist

that means oven let me work next all

Daniel Defoe's frictions like Robinson

Crusoe or Moll Flanders they are written

in the biographical form they follow no

system and then narrated in the half a

said manner which gives them a semblance

of reality and truth sir Leslie Stephen

biographies or history - the facts next

known with Joseph Edison Joseph Edison

and metered steel they were prose

writers of the new classical era so

Richard Steele was the first exponent of

the sentimental comedy in the 18th

century in his place such as the funeral

distinction between the literature of

knowledge and afar all such questions

have been asked in the past in this exam

that's why I have collected all these so

that you can know more about them next

Alfred Lord Tennyson

but this Tennyson's poetry is an

exposition of the cautions spirit of

Victorian liberalism he was essentially

the point of law and order as well as of

progress he was a great admirer of

English traditions and though he

believed in divine evolution of things

the old order earth changes yielding

place to noon and God fulfills himself

in many ways lest one good custom should

corrupt the world next the seven lamps

of architecture and the stones of Venice

prove that the best type of architecture

can be produced only in those ages which

are morally superior being one of the

greatest masters of English he became

that culture is the minister of the

sweetness and light essential to the

perfect character being a poet himself

life and laid great emphasis on the part

it played in the formation of character

and the guidance of conduct next all the

novels of George Eliot yes the same home

actual name was Mary Ann events so all

her novels are example of psychological

realism she represents in them like that

of browning you know the browning and

spray tree the inner struggle of a soul

that is soul dissection and reveals the

motives impulses and hair editor

influences which govern human action but

unlike browning who generally stops shot

when he tells a story and either lets

the reader draw his own conclusion or

gives his in a few striking lions George

minutely explained the motives of her

characters are the moral lessons to be

learned from them so she was only
