Biography of any english poets
Why Enid Blyton is in neither of the lists? They usually deal with marriage and the funny activities of people in love.
No doubt the Victorians would have assumed the greatness of Sir Walter Scott, but his literature did not translate well to another era; as indeed might not Pinter. The lack of output rather disqualifies a Bronte challenge.

The Globe was an outdoor theater with no roof on top so that sunlight could stream in. Because of the open-air stage, actors had to shout very loudly and make big motions to be heard and seen by all. This acting style is quite different from play-acting today. It might also surprise you that all actors during this period were men.
