What time period is A Series of Unfortunate Events set in?
It is in an alternate universe, set around the late 1800s and early 1900s. Snicket (Handler) says himself that this is so, but with the technology and knowledge of today. From the books, it takes part in a European English nation, with reference to North America and some other real parts of the world.
It feels very Victorian 1800s, but there are many technologies, stories, poems and other things that are mentioned that take place up to our time. (Sunny makes a reference to George W. Bush.)
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events supposedly takes place in the 1980s. That may be true, but also, it cant be because there had to be car phones and computers so i think it wasn't in a specific time period because the cars were described as very old fashion as were the outfits worn in the books and movie.
No one knows. There's a lot of speculation, but it never states what kind of location is both near the sea, near the city, near a mountain and a lumber mill and a busy hotel, etc. The time period is also debatable, as the school in TAA has a "super computer" and the car in the prequel series can literally run through a brick building without a dent. Telegrams are also still being in use…
Count Olaf is a fictional character in the 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'. After the main characters are made orphans he takes them in so that he can steal their fortune. He attempts to steal their fortune several times with many different plans, each time he was however, thwarted by the children.
An age (E.G. The Bronze Age) has no set duration of time. Rather, it is a period of time where a specific event, or series of events, happen that all have the same theme. For example, the Bronze Age was the period of time when use of bronze in metalworking was common. When iron was brought into widespread use, then it became the Iron Age.
Which tense allows for the sequencing of two or more noncontinuous events that occur in the same time period?
It is never specified when the series is set. I know it is defiantly not set around our time, so I think it might be set maybe quite in the middle of the 1900s. Because they have cars and things like that. I remember reading on Wikipedia that it was based on a mixture of 20th century New York, and somewhere else. It's probably set in the world we live in because it references places…
It is based on events in the Bible (Old Testament), so the time period is the same as the events recorded in Genesis... which is to say, undetermined exactly, and something that people have a lot of different opinions about, but if you just wanted to refer to it as a generic time period, you could say back in "Biblical times."
The largest most luxuriest steam ship of it's time. A marvel of engineering, and the best engineering could not save the lives that were lost due to a series of unfortunate events. It was supposed to be unsinkable....yet she sank in under 2 hours. She was also the largest most world renowned ship of her class.
