Edwardian Era

The Edwardian era covers the period right after the Victorian era until the end of World War I. It begins with the reign of Edward VII in 1901 and continues after his death.

Edwardian works are more than just life at Downton Abbey or a glamorous evening on the Titanic. Many of them deal with the changes brought on by the suffrage movement, the sudden changes brought about by the public availability of electricity and technological advances. In the Edwardian era, war became more brutal and more advanced. Human rights became a topic of interest and change. Class differences became sharply evident.

A lot of societal changes that happened in the 20s and 30s and 40s had their roots in Edwardian thinking and Edwardian issues.

This time is part of the 20th Century.

Dolce Domum (Mole’s Christmas)

Edwardian Era

I decided to review not the entire Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame but, instead, focus on an excerpt of one particular chapter — ‘Dolce Domum’. Or, as I affectionately refer to it, Mole’s Christmas — based on the animated special ITV put out sometime in the 1990s which I watch on Youtube every year to start the holiday season.
