Kurzbeschreibung

6. März 2014
How to be a Victorian - a time traveller's guide to Victorian Britain by the BBC's Ruth Goodman We know what life was like for Victoria and Albert. But what was it like for a commoner like you or me? How did it feel to cook with coal and wash with tea leaves? Drink beer for breakfast and clean your teeth with cuttlefish? Dress in whalebone and feed opium to the baby? Surviving everyday life came down to the gritty details, the small necessities and tricks of living.Drawing on Ruth's unique first-hand experience, gained from living on a Victorian farm for a year, this book will teach you everything you need to know about 19th century living.If you liked A Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England or If Walls Could Talk, you will love this book.Popular Historian Ruth Goodman is an expert in nineteenth-century social and domestic history. She has presented a number of BBC television series, including Victorian Farm and Edwardian Farm and is a regular expert on The One Show. She spent ten years as a historical advisor to the Royal Shakespeare Company's Globe Theatre and has co-authored three books, including the Number One Bestseller Victorian Farm.

Beetonian, compendious (Guardian)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely fascinating 4. November 2013
Von Nancy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this book absolutely fascinating. It's all about the everyday things you wonder about but don't get to learn from most history books - how you would have kept yourself clean, washed your hair, done laundry, cooked, cleaned, etc. The author's experience living as a Victorian in BBC reality shows has enriched this book immensely. She tells us that corsets are surprisingly comfortable, although itchy, and describes how you had to learn to sit and move properly in a crinoline or bustle. The tricks and etiquette of using chamber pots, how privies were kept clean and sweet smelling, dealing with menstruation, looking after babies, cooking on a coal range are all covered. I would recommend this book to anyone who finds the small details of the past as interesting as I do.

5.0 von 5 Sternen OMG what a great book on Victorians 30. November 2013
Von Mrs. Alice S. Franceschini - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
OMG This is a great book. The author lived the life of a Victorian for a year. Sures opens up my eyes that the Victorian times were not as romantic as I thought. Victorians did not heat their houses and in the dead of winter they left the windows open because they thought the cold was healthy. However, they should have gotten a clue that heat was better since the pubs at the time all had a roaring fire and it was crowded with folks wanting to get warm and have a beverage. People went hungry all the time and the very poor was starving all the time. The work houses were nothing but slave and abuse camps. This book is well written with well researched and personally lived knowledge. So good I read it twice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen an expereince, not just a book 18. März 2014
Von Jude Gerstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
OK, I have to admit it. I'm a huge Ruth Goodman fan. I've watched every episode of the "farm"series Ms. Goodman is in and the Victorian Pharmacy ones as well. It's her enthusiasm as well as her expertise that comes shining through. They both shine through in this book, and that's no mean feat.

Ms. Goodman has lived the life and her research is impeccable. What sets her and this book apart is the empathy and understanding she brings to what would otherwise be merely dry facts. The writing style is her own voice, I can hear her voice as I read.

It's the sort of book that I can sit and read for hours, or pick up, read a bit, or a chapter, and then put it away until I have time to explore Victorian England again. Ms. Goodman paints a picture of the every day minutia that affected those living then as do those same things in our own times.

I have only 2 negative comments to make. The first one is that there is no audiobook available, narrated by Ruth Goodman herself, and that she hasn't written a companion volume for the Tudor age.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of good information. 3. Februar 2014
Von Elizabeth Urbach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I've been a fan of Ruth Goodman's ever since I saw her in Victorian Farm a few years ago, and I love her approach to learning history -- by doing. I'm also a domestic historian and I collect antique and vintage housekeeping manuals and cookbooks to get a peek into the thoughts and actions of everyday people, especially women. This book is like one of the old manuals, but with this improvement: it was written from the experiences of a modern woman who has both read about and lived the Victorian era, during the production of Victorian Farm, Victorian Farm Christmas special, and The Victorian Pharmacy television programs. Ruth includes not only the original information from primary sources, but her own observations and the results of her experimentation with following 19th century methods. The book follows the Victorian woman (and man) through the day, from the time they get up to the time they go to bed at night, as Ruth discusses what they would have done and how they would have done it. Fashion, hygiene, food, housekeeping, animal husbandry, gardening and much more are included. Although Ruth and her teammates Alex and Peter wrote a companion book to the Victorian Farm series, this is Ruth's own book, which goes into much more detail than the earlier book. The illustrations in this book include color photos of original period clothing, domestic tools, and images from newspapers and magazines. If you want to feel the Victorian life for yourself, this book has those little details that don't get mentioned in the original household manuals, or even most letters or diaries from the period, like how to deal with women's menstrual hygiene and other personal issues.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How to be a Victorian 1. Mai 2014
Von Sharon M Hallman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I adored Ruth in "The Valley", "The Victorian Farm," "The Edwardian Farm" and all the others. I found her book to be a useful commentary and expansion to much of what we saw from her on these shows. I enjoyed it very much!
