Course Description

We study the short ‘Golden Age’ before ‘the black pit of war’ (J.B. Priestley’s description) that was to change the idyll of elegant living for the wealthy socialising on a grand scale, but was also a tarnished age for the poor living in slums. We compare domestic, social and cultural life, including how paintings and literature depicted society. Illustrated with PowerPoint slideshows, paintings and texts.
