A "delightful reader's companion" (The New York Times) to the great nineteenth-century British novels of Austen, Dickens, Trollope, the Brontës, and more, this lively guide clarifies the sometimes bizarre maze of rules and customs that governed life in Victorian England. For anyone who has ever wondered whether a duke outranked an earl, when to yell "Tally Ho!" at a fox hunt, or how one landed in "debtor's prison," this book serves as an indispensable historical and literary resource. Author Daniel Pool provides countless intriguing details (did you know that the "plums" in Christmas plum pudding were actually raisins?) on the Church of England, sex, Parliament, dinner parties, country house visiting, and a host of other aspects of nineteenth-century English life--both "upstairs" and "downstairs. An illuminating glossary gives at a glance the meaning and significance of terms ranging from "ague" to "wainscoting," the specifics of the currency system, and a lively host of other details and curiosities of the day.… (més)

This book was a little silly compared to some of the other, more immersive books that I've read on the subject of daily life and customs in 19th century England. It's more like a books of facts rather than a book that follows a narrative. I think it would definitely be handy to have around as a reference for when you are reading literature from this time period. ( )

I picked it up on a whim at the library and, as soon as I picked it up to read, knew I had made a mistake. Apart from monetary matters (who can keep British coinage and slang about coinage straight anyway) I knew most of it from deduction and various histories. Thus, I was not the primary target for this book.

Bother.

And, to further complicate matters, new research has since been published that questions some of the facts presented herein.

Double bother.

But I skimmed it anyway. And found that there were some sections that deserved skimming because they skimmed themselves.

Also, I felt that the time (1780s to 1880s) was a little too broad. Picking one time period (either Victorian or pre-Victorian) would have allowed for more specificity. ( )

Good overview, but not enough detail for anyone who picked it up in order to write historical fiction. Useful details when it comes to carriages and servants. ( )

Good for Glossary and dryly amusing.
