Ce livre en langue anglaise est un régal.
Quel talent chez l'auteur qui a su compiler un nombre incalculable de références pratiques allant du découpage de la population en % de membres de chaque classe sociale, du prix de l'eau, du gaz, de la place des meubles, de la composition des tissus de décoration.
Ce qui est remarquable c'est comment,partant de la description d'une pièce de la maison on en arrive à la condition féminine, à la condition de la domesticité, au bon goût, au respect obsessionnel de ce qui se fait dans la bourgeoisie ou de ce qui est proscrit.
Bref : une peinture de la bourgeoisie anglaise urbaine du 19éme siècle étonnante et fort instructive. Beaucoup d'idées reçues y sont mises à mal.
A lire absolument.

HASH(0x9053faa4) étoiles sur 5 A wonderful survey of daily life in 1800s Britain 19 novembre 2004
Par saskatoonguy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a wonderful survey of British social history in the 1800s - how people actually lived their lives day to day. Drawing from every possible historical source, the author describes what life was like for well-to-do Brits in the Victorian era, with a particular emphasis on London. Her theme is to take the reader through an upper-crust house room by room: One chapter on the kitchen, one on the scullery, one on the parlour, and so on. I found it utterly fascinating.

Victorian England is not exactly ancient history, yet it is amazing how different life was then, and how unpleasant (by our standards) life was even for the wealthy. For instance, people tolerated incredible filth. Even among the well-to-do, coal dust coated every interior surface, clothing was heavy and dirty, and baths were infrequent. London fogs were so thick that pedestrians would bump into things. Food was extremely bland even for the elite, and it was thought that feeding vegetables to children would stir up sexual interest. Most surprising of all, women rarely questioned their inferior status. It was generally accepted that women were mentally and physically weak, and women themselves seemed to accept this with little questioning. The amount of change during the last century, in both material and non-material ways, is mind-boggling.

Incidentally, this book appears to be identical to "Inside the Victorian Home" by the same author.

HASH(0x90437438) étoiles sur 5 Astoundingly Engaging 1 novembre 2003
Par David Wineberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Although the fifty page intro was a bit sluggish, it fortunately did not represent the rest of the book. Flanders devotes a chapter to each room in the stereotypical Victorian house, plus one for The Street. Her research gives new meaning to the word "depth". She has mined non fiction, letters, fiction,and just about anything that could possibly add insight to life in that very rigid time. The result is a wealth of analysis, as well as wonderful trivia (People did not want newfangled toilets in their bathrooms because bathrooms were clean!). From the weight of women's clothing (37 pounds), to the ways households detected adulteration in their food, and the number of mail deliveries per day (10-12), The Victorian House is a treasure trove of information. The three sections of colour plates add visual evidence to Flanders' text, and the whole thing is remarkably focused trip through this world.
I have no reservations about recommending this book.

HASH(0x9043babc) étoiles sur 5 Mrs. Beeton Would Be Proud of Judith Flanders 23 septembre 2006
Par Lori A. Pattillo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Like a well-run Victorian home, Judith Flanders has carefully placed each aspect of Victorian life in it's "proper place" with this thoroughly engaging book. Dedicating an entire chapter to each room of the 19th century Victorian English home(Nursery, Scullery, Kitchen,Bathroom, Parlour, Sickroom and so on), Flanders uses each room as a case-study of Victorian English life, from birth to death (and everything in-between). Flander's book draws you in to the era completely with an unromanticized glimpse into the life of average Victorians-not just the wealthy-and through a copious use of contemporary material(e.g. letters, newspapers, advertisements, diaries andliterature). All of this lends an authenticity that at times proves disarming...The details of laundry-day and the immense work involved in basic housekeeping and meal preparation are utterly amazing! After finishing "The Victorian House", I stood in awe of my household appliances and remembered the adage, "The Good Old Days...Are Now".

HASH(0x90286dc8) étoiles sur 5 Like a Trip in a Time Machine 2 décembre 2006
Par ladyguinevere - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I love, love, love this book. I usually can't get into non-fiction books, but this one was a pure joy to read. I was actually sad when I finished. What a fascinating journey back in time. Just a note: the footnotes are the best part. They are full of the most interesting factoids about what really went on in the typical middle-class Victorian's life. Judith Flanders has a wonderful wry sense of sarcastic humor that shines through in her writing, and I found myself laughing many times throughout this book. Makes you glad you live in modern times, but glad you can have an armchair journey back to get a glimpse of what life must have been like back then. It's made me appreciate what I have now so much more, and also to realize why we do things today the way that we do, and where those customs and traditions came from originally.

My only criticism would be that this isn't a totally objective look at Victorian life - it is all tinged with Ms Flanders' personality and judgments, and her feminist leanings quickly become obvious throughout the beginning of the book. Now, I'm all for women's rights and all that, being a woman myself, but it got a bit tiring after a while to be reminded, YET again, of how hard life was for women in that era. One other little criticism is that the introductory chapter is a bit slow - don't give up! The rest of the book picks up the pace quite considerably. It's definitely worth it! It's changed my view of my own life in today's world, and been a wonderful, and fascinating journey back over a hundred years ago, from the safety and comfort of my rather cushy 21st century existence. I didn't want it to end, even though it removed my rose-tinted glasses of "charming" Victoriana entirely!

I am always curious about life in the past and this book is quite good at explaining all the things that they had in homes back in Victorian times. There are some diagrams and also pictures actually taken at that time. Tells some about family sizes, the people hired to work in the homes, problems with soot from fires, how often some parts of the kitchen were cleaned, etc. Quite interesting. I would have liked even more diagrams and pictures. Glad I got it.
