Victorian life and morals,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mrs Robinson's Disgrace: The Private Diary of a Victorian Lady (Kindle Edition)
To learn more about middle/upper class Victorians. This book shows the double standards in Victorian society, men appear to have had different rules they lived by, whilst women were deemed of no consequence and not supposed to have views on any subject other than their children and running of the household. And to have actual feelings of passion was shocking.
This book is an excellent record of victorian marriage and divorce, based on a genuine divorce, not a novel so many will be disappointed, the language is different, more stilted, many would struggle with it. The book is quite short pity another case is not included. If you like light chick lit this is not for you, students of history will find it a helpful reference of research.
