AbstractThe ideas adopted by John Stuart Mill(1806-1873) have their influence on English literature in the Victorian Age. This is because these ideas are in harmony with the spirit of the age which is characterized by a strong sense of inquiry and curiosity concerning God, Nature, Religion and so many other serious matters. Moreover, these ideas are a sharp reflection of many aspects of the social, economic, political and intellectual life in the Victorian Age.
This paper is devoted to study some of the aspects of the influence of J.S.Mill on Some Victorian Writers. It traces this influence on the literary production of some distinguished Victorian poets and novelists such as Tennyson, Arnold, Dickens, Hardy and some other ones.
