    Abstract

    The 1820s and '30s are routinely ignored as a lacuna in literary history, yet they were years of transformation, the seedbed of great achievement thereafter. Commentators at the time responded variously with alarm or optimism, but all agreed that it was an age of profound change. In 1824, William Hazlitt diagnosed the end of an era in The Spirit of the Age; in 1844, Richard Henry Horne, in conscious emulation, celebrated A New Spirit of the Age. These works stand as landmarks in the transition from Romanticism to Victorianism and offer insight into the ferment of the era.
