Summary, etc.:
With his customary flair for dramatic stories and telling detail, A.N. Wilson singles out those writers, statesmen, scientists, philosophers, and soldiers whose lives illuminated the fervor of an age on the cusp of modernity. Here we meet the lofty and famous--Prince Albert, Darwin, Marx, Gladstone, Christina Rossetti, Gordon of Khartoum, Cardinal Newman, George Eliot, Kipling, and Disraeli. But we also meet the poor and the obscure--doctors ministering to cholera victims in the big cities; young women working as models for famous painters; the man who got the British hooked on cigarettes; the colonizers and colonized in Ireland, India, and Africa.
Subject: Great Britain > History > Victoria, 1837-1901.
