In response to Queen Vic, written by JW on April 13, 1998 at 17:41:46
You were mistaken to assume that I believe Queen Victoria to be a "prude"--by no means. I was just curious to see what others thought about the social constraints that came about in her reign and how, if they'd been different, society today would be. You did a wonderful job in explaining the role the middle class played in the backlash against the previous monarchs (I had no idea). It must have been trying, indeed, for the first queen in a long while to tackle such ignominy within the crown, and lose one so dear to her as Albert.
Thank you for your input. I haven't studied the Victorian era much (I've been too enthralled with the Regency), but if you have any 'must see' resources to recommend, I would be eternally grateful.
