This amusing foray into 18th century literature is an entertaining tabloid biography of an age not unlike our own; men and women of fashion led their lives under the avid scrutiny of a public who had a sharp appetite for scandal and sensation.

T.H. White gives us a brief tour of more-or-less Regency society that seems to have no point except to humorously repeat the most scandalous/bitchy/salacious gossip of the era and poke fun at major figures of the time, largely through extended quotations from contemporaries. In doing so he reveals perhaps more about himself than the history he's talking about in the most partial and judgemental fashion imaginable. It's not a flattering self-portrait, depicting a very conventional middle-class man of his times not really recognisable as the author of The Once and Future King. It lacks any kind of thesis but it's equal parts amusing and appalling. I just don't think White expected himself to be one of the characters we are both amused and appalled by... ( )

Proof that our own age doesn't have a monopoly on gossip, stomach-churning cruelty, or ridiculous behavior by the rich, etc. etc. This is an entertaining read for the most part, marred by White's rather obtuse style at times and his insufferable habit of quoting long passages in French without any translation. In this regard, it would work better as a Kindle book, where I have been able to use the Translate feature to make my way through other books with the same issue. I must say that, unlike a lot of books which might be considered shocking in their day, this one is STILL shocking. ( )

The author claims to have written this as an escape from the egalitarian spirit of the early nineteen fiftes. In the most affectionate spirit, he digs the dirt on the old aristocracy.

Told largely as excerpted quotations from contemporary sources it is full of scabrous anecdotes and admiration for Dr Johnson; a sort f 'News of the World' view of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

Well worth reading just for the salacious details. ( )

When I first read this when young, I found it fascinating fotr its picture of bizarre behavior among the engilsh elite. Rereading it, I note a very Tory attitutde to the socioeconomic effects of the Atlee era (when it was written) and some inaccurate but colorful stories. It is still fun, though. ( )
