AN Wilson does for the Victorians what Peter Ackroyd did for LondonPeople not abstract ideas make history and nowhere is this revealed than in this superb portrait of the Victorians in which hundreds of different lives have been pieced together to tell a story In an entertaining and often dramatic narrative AN Wilson shows us remarkable people in the very act of creating the Victoria. It s uite difficult to know how to describe this book It s non fiction it s history of course it s history but somehownot uite history as one might expect it And yet if you asked me to put my finger on why this isn t a typical history book I think I would struggle It s about a particular time and place it s written in a chronological fashion the usual suspects of Victorian history make an appearance it focuses on politics the monarchy war culture literature fashion commerce And yet somehow there is definitely something about this book that differs from a normal history bookI think perhaps it s the author This is very much AN Wilson s personal take on the Victorians history from one individual s perspective By and large with most history books the author is all but invisible He or she presents their version of history without interfering in the narrative their presence is only really visible in the elements they choose to focus on the things they include and the things they omit Whilst that is just as much the case here the author s presence is that much tangible I think that added to Wilson s occasionally whimsical tone and authorial asides somehow makes this history book feel less like history and like one individual s musings on historyIt s an unexpected approach but not an entirely unsuccessful one It makes this book very much a mixed bag an often enjoyable but occasionally rambling read one that almost feels like it s stuffed just that little bit too full with anecdotes and snapshots and asides and marginalia One could argue a little bit structure and rigidity a tightening of the focus a trimming of some of the fat might have improved it but then it would probably have been just like every other book on the Victorians out there and there s definitely something to be said for a novel approach Book of Isms of the Victorians in which hundreds バガボンド 1 of different lives have been pieced together to tell a story In an entertaining and Расул Гамзатов Стихи often dramatic narrative AN Wilson shows us remarkable people in the very act Disrupted My Misadventure in the Start Up Bubble of creating the Victoria.

SUMMARY Í eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ A.N. Wilson

N ageThe industrial capitalist world came into being because of actual businessmen journalists and politicians We meet them in the pages of this fascinating book Their ideas were challenged by the ideas of other people such as Karl Marx William Morris and George Bernard Shaw Here are the lofty and the famous Prince Albert Lord Palmerston Charles Dickens Gladstone and Disraeli and her. This is very clearly a book the author had inside him for a long timeIt s everything AN Wilson knows about the Victorian era s literature politics arts and historical events and the main actors in each of those fields with a strong overlay of personal opinion often viewed through the eye of religion The royals do not really star as the author seems to believe ueen Victoria was largely incidental to everything that happened during her reign rather than instrumentalIt is unlikely you will actually learn the history or the politics of the period from this book let alone the literature or the arts of the Victorians because the reader here is very much left to drink from a hose However I found it to be a tremendously interesting and often entertaining read and an unbelievable source of background and gossip surrounding the very few bits I did happen to know aboutI have no means of knowing if the author s love for Robert Peel disdain for Lords Palmerston and Russel grudging respect for Gladstone or guarded disrespect for Benjamin Disraeli are feelings shared by most historians the period if the Corn Laws really ought to be understood as part of the same mentality that led to the Irish Famine if the Crimean War or the Boer War were as unjustified as the author suggests they were or if one man Charles Stuart Parnell really stood a chance of delivering Home Rule for Ireland And you re presented with a portrait of Dickens but not really with a proper tour of his London or of a Manchester cotton mill for that matter either The plight of the countryside is presented here but the industrial revolution 100% passes you by in this accountThe angle is very much that the author makes an enormous effort to tell you the story based on whatever stood a chance of reaching the eyes and ears of a privileged privately educated member of the English upper class with a side glance reserved for the sad fate of the smaller land ownersAN Wilson being a columnist you also get a peek into how journalism was born alongside still photography around the time of the Crimean War how it took hold in the 1880 s when it reported on the gallant death of General Charles George Gordon in Khartoum and how uickly it devolved to sensationalism with particular ire reserved for a proto Piers Morgan by the name of William Thomas Stead editor of the Pall Mall Gazette Stead was not a bad man He was that much dangerous thing a morally stupid man doing bad things which he believed to be brave because they made a stir p 476To summarize if the uestion you have is suppose I was a man born into privilege in Victorian times what issues would concern me on a daily basis whose company would I keep what art would I experience what books would I read how would I experience school what would be my relationship with the fair sex or other men for that matter where might I be called to serve and under whom who would take care of me if I were to get injured how did I perceive the risk that the populace might rise in the UK as on the Continent what would I think of Darwin and what would I make of the Catholic threat to the Empire then you ve come to the right place Or at the very least you ll get AN Wilson s well informed angleOverall and leaving out the bits about public school and everything that happened there yikes this was very enjoyable much as I m bound to forget most of it in a month s time Appendix of trivia I picked up here fun stuff I ve already started forgetting They are a poor summary of the book and mainly reflect my interests The New Poor Laws of 1834 ushered in by the government of Lord Melbourne centralized the provision of Poor Relief via poorhouses across the country where conditions were kept abhorrent enough to make them at best a last resort for the poorShortly thereafter the House of Parliament burnt down on 16 October 1834 with JWM Turner watching The Czar attributed it to divine punishment for the Reform Act of 1832 which had broadened the franchise s property ualification in the counties to include small landowners tenant farmers and shopkeepers and had disenfranchised some 56 rotten boroughs p10 The reforms of 1832 perhaps extended suffrage to some propertied persons who had hitherto been excluded but many of the old ways persisted Proprietary boroughs still existed for example p 39 In terms of actual votes cast the Reform Act made no difference at all in many regions In Harwich which returned two members the electorate was 214 people Liverpool with its 8000 new voters also returned two members p 40Poorhouses notwithstanding the depression of 1837 44 led to a million Britons dying of famine and beueathed us literature like Oliver Twist serialized in 1837 39 p28Police is a nineteenth century phenomenon it did not exit before Robert Peel established a Metropolitan Police force of 3000 men in 1829 in response to crime against property which had sprung from the fact that English criminal law was moving from being the harshest anywhere with some 200 capital offences closer to the European norms with only eight capital offences in 1841 p 38One man could contest as many seats as he pleased as Gladstone did in 1880 winning both Leeds and Midlothian and passed Leeds on to his son Herbert p 401The Lancet was originally a muckracking publication that upset the medical establishment because it foiled its attempt to cover up deaths from Cholera and flogging Thomas Wakley its founder was a coroner not a medical doctor p 35 and even became a member of parliamentThe Chartist movement was born in the famine and depression of 1837 44 The Chartists were basically asking for one man one vote but were split between a rebellious and a pacifist faction They were violently uashed on April 10 1848 but their influence had been dwindling for a decade p 118 but also pp 34 47You could hear thick non London accents in UK parliament until deep into the Victorian age Robert Peel had a strong northern accent mocked by Benjamin Disraeli for example p 59An Austrian uack Anton Mesmer invented mesmerism a widely practiced form of hypnotism in the 1840 s pp 103 107The British have been defeated before in Afghanistan 16000 men British and Indian were slaughtered in the 1842 retreat from Kabul to Jalalabad One man an army doctor was spared to deliver the newsJohn Stuart Mill s day job was that of an Examiner for the East India Company pp 108 112The Great Exhibition of 1851 was the brainchild of Henry Cole p 128 and took place in Hyde Park in the glass and iron structure designed by Joseph Paxtonueen Victoria and Prince Albert did not much like Lord Palmerston Between themselves they used to call him PilgersteinIt was Marx who uipped that history repeats itself first as a tragedy and then as a farce in reference to the fact that 18 Brumaire marked both the ascension of Napoelon to power in 1799 and Louis Napoleon s in 1851The menu served at the banuet of the warring officers Russian and British after the battle of Balaclava p 195 makes for some reading and lends credibility to the notion that war in the 19th century was a form of sport for the uarrelsome and incompetent landed gentry who could afford to pay for it p 186Darwin descended from businessman Josiah Wedgwood of fine china fame and that s how he could afford his travels to say nothing of his scientific views The Enfield rifle caused great misery to loyal Sepoy officers severely punished for refusing to bite off the cartridges before loading them into the gun they were stuffed with tallow an animal fat and beeswax p 201 Childhood as Americans or Europeans of the twenty first century understand the term is really uite a new phenomenon in human history and began roughly speaking in the 1860s p 260 In 1814 there were 23000 four wheeled vehicles in the capital by 1834 49000 by 1864 102000 with a further 170000 two wheelers This represents a huge social class as well as a huge congestion in the streets and it is this class this immensely privileged class probably comfortable than any human class who had ever existed on the planet whose offspring were the first with the leisure and time to have a childhood p 262The James Bulger killing of 1993 was a repeat of an entirely similar incident in 1861 when the eight year old boys who perpetrated the murder were imprisoned for one month and sent for five years to a reformatory p 266The Contagious Diseases act of 1864 and other such legislature that followed were of disastrous conseuences to women until it was repealed in 1886 p 308 Women had it pretty bad at the time as the legal framework was no different from Saudi Arabia s todayCharles Lutwidge Dodgson better known as Lewis Carroll from our angle a pervert who took pictures of little girls and proposed to Alice Liddell when she was all of 11 actually was not all that abnormal for his day when morals were rather different from ours p 324The last man to be hanged publicly in England was an Irishman p 338Marx Metternich and Napoleon III all found refuge in England when things got hot for them on the ContinentThe Reform Act of 1867 ushered by Liberal Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone granted the vote to all householders in the borrows as well as lodgers who paid rent of 10 pounds a year or extending the franchise by 938000 voters p 338Further reform in 1884 extended the vote from 2618453 voters to 4376916 voters p 479 and also reduced all constituencies to one MPGladstone was the son of a Liverpool merchant had gone to Eton had married into aristocracy and is uoted as considering himself an out and out ineualitarian p 356 A devout Christian he liked to spend time talking prostitutes out of their profession Some type of Reform Act was going to come about basicallyBenjamin Disraeli wrote several novels commenting on all issues society was considering in his times including the theory of evolutionPublic opinion in England in the late 19th century was rocked by a minor footnote in world history the slaughter of fewer than five thousand Bulgarians by Ottoman mercenaries in the summer of 1876 These became known as the Bulgarian Atrocities The main purpose of the publicity given to these atrocities whose victims were Christians was to undermine Disraeli s turcophile stance p 397 The word jingoism comes from the following song which Disraeli s supporters sang the main theme here being the containment of Russian expansionism p 399We don t want to fight but by Jingo if we doWe ve got the ships we ve got the men we ve got the money tooWe ve fought the Bear before and while Britons shall be trueThe Russians will never have ConstantinopleCemeteries were invented in Victorian times Until then people had been buried around churches The first one was established at Kensal Green in 1831 then Norwood in 1837 then Highgate in 1839 My local cemetery Brompton dates from 1840 p 543David Lloyd George was a compulsive womanizer p 594The concept of
