Sir Walter Raleigh and His Time
Biografía del Autor
<p>Charles Kingsley (1819-1875) was a notable English clergyman, university professor, historian, and novelist during the 19th century. His diverse literary contributions range from social reform tracts to children\'s literature. As an advocate for Christian Socialism, his works often reflected his passion for social reform and reflection on Victorian society\'s challenges. Kingsley\'s perhaps best-known work, \'The Water-Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby\' (1863), is a fanciful tale that combines social criticism with Christian moral lessons. Another significant work, \'Westward Ho!\' (1855), showcases his ability to blend historical detail with adventure, cementing his reputation for historical accuracy blended with vivid storytelling. \'Sir Walter Raleigh and His Time\' is an example of Kingsley\'s historical investigations, capturing the life and times of the illustrious Elizabethan courtier, explorer, and writer, Sir Walter Raleigh. Kingsley\'s literary style was in part characterized by his attempt to reconcile science and religion, capturing the intellectual currents of his time. As a proponent of the Broad Church Anglican sector, he worked to harmonize the discoveries of the natural sciences with Christian faith. Kingsley\'s influence extended beyond literature; he was also involved in the education sector, serving as a professor of modern history at Cambridge University from 1860 to 1869. His works remain studied for their reflection of the social and intellectual milieu of Victorian England.</p>
