The Georgian era, sometimes known as ‘The Long Eighteenth Century’ was a time of great achievement in the arts and sciences, but also one of inequality and extravagance among the rich. Fashions and pleasures were writ large, and the inherent dangers and uncertainty of living in a city such as London resulted in lives that were particularly intense and passionate.
The Victorian era, meanwhile, from 1837 to 1901, provides everything a lover of the Gothic and the Mysterious could wish for. Against a backdrop of revolution and social unrest on the continent, intrigue and ‘atmosphere’ simply emanated from the walls in 19th-century England.
Here are two very different works celebrating those times -Wildish, an adult romantic comedy set during the reign of George II, and The Testament of Sophie Dawes - a neo-Victorian (modern Victorian) tale of intrigue and scandal presented in the form of a diary and letters.
