The Regency Years: During Which Jane Austen Writes, Napoleon Fights, Byron Makes Love, and Britain Becomes Modern by Robert Morrison

Moderated by Jeanmarie Kantor, Library HQ    (Request copy of book here)

The Victorians are often credited with ushering in our current era, yet the seeds of change were planted in the years before. The Regency (1811–1820) began when the Prince of Wales―the future King George IV―replaced George III, as Britain’s ruler. Around the Regent surged a society steeped in contrasts: evangelicalism and hedonism, elegance and brutality, exuberance and despair. Yet the dark side of the era was visible in poverty, slavery, pornography, opium, and the gothic imaginings that birthed the novel Frankenstein. Exploring these crosscurrents, Robert Morrison illuminates the profound ways this period shaped and indelibly marked the modern world.
