Opening line of Bulwer Lytton’s Paul Clifford: “It was a dark and stormy night, the rain fell in torrents except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the house-tops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness”.
(Which I snagged from here).

Are there any popular 19th century lit jokes? Aren’t they all obscure? By the way, I was trying to work out what what was going on between the actress and the gentleman and the dark and stormy night. I entirely missed the Snoopy thing.
