Vicorian Era Question
Before becoming educated on dismal life led by the poor in Victorian England, I thought of the distinguishing clothing, royalty led to parties in carriages, arranged marriages of highly important people and famous icons and literature to name of few things. Movies, books and television series cemented the idea of wealth, royalty and ever present scandal as defining characteristics of Victorian London. Extravagance specifically enters my mind as an all encompassing metaphor. The peasants and middle class even illustrate themselves as somewhat closely resembling dress of royalty but on a much simpler scale; however, all of these uneducated assumptions proved very wrong as the semester began.
