Hatred & Civility

The Antisocial Life in Victorian England

eBook - 2004
Rate this:
To understand hatred and civility in today's world, argues Christopher Lane, we should start with Victorian fiction. Although the word ""Victorian"" generally brings to mind images of prudish sexuality and well-heeled snobbery, it has above all become synonymous with self-sacrifice, earnest devotion, and moral rectitude. Yet this idealized version of Victorian England is surprisingly scarce in the period's literature--and its journalism, sermons, poems, and plays--where villains, hypocrites, murderers, and cheats of all types abound.
