To what extent have 19th-century British novelists, such as Austen, Dickens, Eliot, and Hardy, influenced the works of contemporary British writers? Is there a continuity of themes and styles, or have 21st-century British authors fundamentally broken away from examples of the past? Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words.
