The son of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Benson was well-placed to observe the thoughts, words and deeds of the late Victorians. In this anecdotal book, Benson affords his sly observations on the great and the not-so-good. Prince Albert, Blume Jones, Queen Victoria and Edward VII, as well as Gladstone, Gosse, the Pre-Raphaelites, Ruskin, Swinburne, Whistler and Wilde are all subjects of his wit.
