2e hands

Artikelomschrijving

Full of detail and colour about everyday life in Dickenss London, and leaves you with a sense not only of how hard life was then, but how strange. Even if youve read Dickens and the contemporary historians of the poor, there is still more to marvel at here. Sebastian Faulks, Mail on Sunday Books of the Year The nineteenth century was a time of unprecedented transformation, and nowhere was this more apparent than on the streets of London. In only a few decades, London grew from a Regency town to the biggest city the world had ever seen, with more than 6.5 million people and railways, street-lighting and new buildings at every turn. Charles Dickens obsessively walked Londons streets, recording its pleasures, curiosities and cruelties. Now, Judith Flanders follows in his footsteps, leading us through the markets, transport systems, sewers, slums, cemeteries, gin palaces and entertainment emporia of Dickens London. The Victorian City is a revelatory portrait of everyday life on the streets, bringing to life the Victorian capital in all its variety, vibrancy, and squalor. No one who reads it will view London in the same light again.
