Georg Brandes (1842-1927) was of European importance in the second half of the 19th century. Main Currents in Nineteenth Century Literature (six volumes) is his magnum opus. You can find it at Gutenberg. They have added some pictures and forgotten to mention me in the first four volumes.
The book is of interest if you are a fan of Edwardian romances or interested in English social history of that period.
