A Half-Century of Greatness paints a shiny and dramatic photo of the artistic considered mid- to past due 19th century Europe and the impression of the unsuccessful revolutions of 1848. It finds usually unforeseen hyperlinks among novelists, poets, and philosophers from England, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Russia, and Ukraine—especially Dickens, Carlyle, Mill, the Brontës, and George Eliot; Hegel, Strauss, Feuerbach, Marx, Engels, Wagner, and a number of other German poets; the Hungarian poet Sándor Petöfi; Gogol, Dostoevsky, Bakunin, and Herzen in Russia, and the nice Ukrainian poet Shevchenko. Ewen is going directly to hint the transition from Romanticism to Victorianism, or what he calls “the Victorian compromise”—the ascendancy of the center class.
The e-book used to be reconstructed and edited via Dr. Jeffrey Wollock from Ewen’s ultimate manuscript. It contains the author's personal reference citations all through, a reconstructed bibliography, and an up to date “further analyzing” list.

Thompson's The Romantics (1997), will locate Ewen’s paintings a welcome addition.
