Edwardian Turn Of Mind, Paperback / softback Book

Edwardian Turn Of Mind Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The Edwardian Turn of Mind brilliantly evokes the cultural temper of an age.

The years between the death of Queen Victoria and the outbreak of the First World War witnessed a turbulent and dramatic struggle between the old and the new.

Samuel Hynes considers the principal areas of conflict - politics, science, the arts and the relations between men and women - and fills them with a wide-ranging cast of characters: Tories, Liberals and Socialists, artists and reformers, psychoanalysts and psychic researchers, sexologists, suffragettes and censors.

His book is a portrait of a tumultuous time - out of which contemporary England was made.
