THE GOLDEN SUMMER OF THE EDWARDIANS (1902-1914)

COURSE OVERVIEW

N.B. History courses may contain outdated attitudes, cultural depictions and language which cause offence today. They have to be viewed from an historic perspective. When discussing the content these views are not those of the tutor.

We study the short period of peace and prosperity before the First World War when life and living was completely changed for all.

‘In so far as any single group in a community imposes a popular image of its domestic life on an age, for Edwardian England that group was the very rich.’; (Marghanita Laski). This was in contrast to those living in abject poverty. The middle classes were doing better and the working class were aiming to be respectable and hard-working.

Writer J.B. Priestley’;s view of Edwardian England was that, ‘…there were many changes, many reforms, yet all seems so Victorian, not at all Edwardian…in sweet little cottages that were menacingly insanitary.’;

We take a hard look at the suffragettes and their struggles including the notorious “Cat and Mouse Act”.
