The poetic realism started around 1830 in Europe. Here we can find authors like Charles Dickens. 


Charles Dickens (1812 – 1870) was an English novelist. His work is very poetic and he often used a comic touch. He criticized judicial system and the schools. His social and political ideas were based on his own feelings and experience. In Norway many read his writings and Alexander Kielland was inspired by Dickens ideas.

In Norway:

Camilla Collett – Amtmandens døtre

Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson – Synnøve Solbakken
And poems by Wergeland – hasselnødder and Welhaven.
