Queen Victoria and the Theatre of Her Age free pdf This title provides a portrait of Queen Victoria "at the play". Through Victoria's diary, artwork, and correspondence we see her as enraptured spectator, bountiful patron, and tyrannical director of private theatricals. At times she appears formidable. More frequently she is impudent, high spirited and unruly a woman who delights in gory melodramas and circus acts. This volume gives readers a personal account of her lifelong devotion to the stage. It should appeal to anyone interested in monarchy's place in popular culture.
