9780140173260: Love in the Time of Victoria: Sexuality and Desire Among Working-Class Men and Women in Nineteenth-Century London

This book overturns the prejudices of Victorian London's middle class moralists and reformers, who equated poverty with depravity, by presenting and analyzing an extraordinary range of hitherto unpublished firsthand documents: love letters and testimonies from working class women who faced pregnancy alone, and from their suitors, relatives and employers. These unique and moving writings provide the fullest and most accurate picture to date of love and sex among the poor in Victorian London.
