In Praise of British Literature
British English is the mother tongue and standard for the English-speaking world. So it’s no surprise that British literature is likewise an exemplar for the literary world. It’s hard to imagine that anyone will ever surpass the work of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Donne, Milton, Blake, Austen, Keats, Dickens, Doyle, or Woolf. Kudos to Great Britain for novelist Charles Dickens, whose vivid Victorian characters have inspired worldwide entertainment, study, and social reform.
