3.0 out of 5 stars A Sequel In The Victorian Erotic Genre Involving Elaine Cox, 4 May 2010
Clifford (Weymouth, Dorset, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Tomboy: Memoirs of a Girls' Reformatory and Its Cause Celebre by One Who Was a Witness (Paperback)
This is a sequel to the books published in Paris in the 1890s concerning the goings-on at an English Girl's Reformatory in which young ladies could be incarcerated for several years, during which time they were subject to the will and chastisement of men employed by the local gentry for the purposes of correction using physical punishments. 'School for Scandal' is another of the series. The tale is related by a young man newly apprenticed to Master Miles, responsible for the day-to-day running of the Reformatory. Girls with names familiar within the genre, such as Elaine Cox, predominate, with ambiguous attitude to their situation that varies between pain and pleasure. The former tends to predominate in this book. It is a classic of the Victorian part of the genre, charmingly written, although like many sequels it tends to repeat what appears already elsewhere.
