Course Description
Although remembered for its elegance of manners and Palladian architectural style, Georgian London was also characterized by an underside of considerable brutality, violence, and filth.

This class will explore the contrasts between a glittering high society and the difficult circumstances of the impoverished, the beautiful squares of the West End and the city’s overcrowded slums in the East End, and the verbal wit of Dr. Johnson’s circle and the physical violence often encountered on the streets.
Eight sessions. $305/$274.50. Led by Frank Biletz
