CONTRA O GOLPE CIVIL EM CURSO E A FAVOR DA DEMOCRACIA

segunda-feira, 12 de maio de 2014

Together with Samuel Butler's The Way of All Flesh (1903), Eminent Victorians is one of the major works from the generation immediately suceeding the Victorians that helped to give the word "Victorian" that heavy sinky feeling which so often still accompanies it. We might perhaps speak of a "Renaissance" cast of mind or say that some phenomenon was essentially "Romantic", but neither of these descriptors has the derogatory force that "typically Victorian" has carried from at least 1918.

(Philip Davis, The Victorians, p.1)
