Book Description
Its growth was stupendous. Its wealth was dazzling. Its horrors shocked the world. In one hour’s walk from west to east, London revealed cavalcade of life chances – from all the prizes that civilization could offer on the one hand to a barbarous struggle for existence on the other. As William Blake put it, London was ‘a Human awful wonder of God’. The nineteenth century was London’s greatest so far. It was a century of genius – poets, novelists, journalists, philanthropists, and politicians too. This was the London of Blake, Thackeray and Mayhew, of Nash, Faraday, Barnardo and Disraeli. Most of all it was the London of Dickens.
