1819 is a year notable, in retrospect, for its literary births. It marks the first appearance of George Eliot, Arthur Hugh Clough, Charles Kingsley, and — on 8 February, in Hunter Street, London — John Ruskin. Other celebrated fellow-infants of 1819 were Princess Victoria and Prince Albert; John Ruskin went up to Oxford in the year of Victoria’s accession to the throne.
