Join Professor Clive Bloom as he discusses his latest publication, Victoria’s Madmen, which tells the stories of the figures, who came to exemplify a contradictory history of the Victorian age: not one of Dickensian London and smoking factories, but of little-known revolutionaries and radicals.

Exploring the unexpected aspects of a host of famous and infamous personalities, from Arthur Conan Doyle’s Professor Moriarty to occultist Aleister Crowley, Professor Bloom will reveal the dark underbelly of Victoria’s Britain and the unrest bubbling under the surface of strait-laced society.
