The Essential Handbook of Victorian Etiquette - Thomas E. Hill Life is much more simple now in some respects, but the defined relationships and behavior patterns of the past have something to be said for them. While I would not want to return to the stultifying Victorian age as a woman, given the limited options available to females, the formal, courteous and thoughtful ways of the time have something nice about them. But of course, all these nice manners, and nice they are, were for the upper class people who had the time and money to live the lives as described. The "regular" people lived at much simpler and less formal level, and probably enjoyed it more (money aside).
