"London in 1820 was a city of extraordinary creative dynamism and big money.

The voice of Victorian sex : Arthur H. Clough, 1819-1861 by Rupert Christiansen( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 95 libraries worldwide
"The golden hope of his generation at Rugby and Oxford, he battled against the repressive orthodoxies of his time to produce some of the 19th century's most witty and original verse. Sexually and morally tortured, he died at a tragically early age, his health destroyed by his devotion to the cause of Florence Nightingale." "In this study, the first biography of Clough for more than 30 years, Rupert Christiansen draws on newly emerged documents, to present a dramatic portrait of a maverick figure, whose radical ideas about politics, religion and women will make him vividly sympathetic to modern readers."--BOOK JACKET
