The Steampunk Empire

The Crossroads of the Aether

I require some assistance in researching Victorian history.  My Literature teacher assigned me my project for this quarter, and the project is thus: "Choose a social or economic change in the Victorian era and analyze how it affected the literature of the time."

Unfortunately, I don't have any familiarity with the subject matter.  I would be most obliged if some of you were to help me with my research.  Might you?

It's pricy IMHO, but the book "Inside the Victorian Home: A Portrait of Domestic Life in Victorian England" takes you on a tour of the Victorian English middle-class home, exploring in-depth room by room. The author uses primary source examples which not only include letters and diaries, but also published works including fiction (Dickens especially is of note). I suggest doing something regarding the cult of motherhood or medicine and illness.

I would suggest you look into the policy changes that occurred during Benjamin Disrali's tenure as Prime Minister.
