Details

After Queen Victoria’s death, it was decided to publish her correspondence. Based on unprecedented access to royal archives, this work of historical detection profiles the men chosen to edit the letters: the depressive schoolmaster Arthur Benson, and Viscount Esher, a royal confidant obsessed with Eton schoolboys. It shows how their decisions shaped our perception of Victoria, and reveals aspects of the queen not intended for public scrutiny.
