    One thought on “The Portable Victorian Reader”

    1. Unfortunately, I hadn t realized how political this compilation was which is my own fault I read the bits by authors I was interested in and left the rest However, if you want a 360 view of Victorian life through the eyes of those who were there, this is an excellent and comprehensive selection.
