WHAT IS REGENCY? By Blair Bancroft - page 10 / 10





10 / 10

10 time of enormous social upheaval, characterized by a high society that often seemed to

be doing its best to ignore the serious things of life. So what else is new? And, as I’ve mentioned, in spite of outward appearances, these were the ancestors of those who fought the Battle of Britain. Noble. Strong. Resolute. The men of this time were seldom known for ruling their women with an iron fist. This cannot be said of Victorian times. Which is a major reason why I write—and read—Regencies.

And the next time you do the same, I hope you’ll find this article has brought you a better understanding of what makes Regency novels tick—why we write them and why we love to read them.

*** Among my favorite Regency Research books:

The Prince of Pleasure Our Tempestuous Day Life in Regency England

J. B. Priestley Carolly Erickson R. J. White

Wellington—Years of the Sword Elizabeth Longford

Beau Brummell

Hubert Cole

The Terror Before Trafalgar
