Social Life in England 1750-1850 by F.J. Foakes-Jackson (1855 - 1941).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/social-life-in-england-1750-1850-by-f-j-foakes-jackson/


In 1916, the Cambridge historian, F.J. Foakes-Jackson braved the wartime Atlantic to deliver the Lowell Lectures in Boston. In these wide-ranging and engaging talks, the author describes British life between 1750-1850. There are John Wesley's horseback peregrinations over thousands of miles of English countryside. Next, Foakes-Jackson introduces the mordant rural poet, George Crabbe, who began life as a surgeon apothecary and ended up as a parish rector who made house calls. He gives us a female convict, assorted Cambridge University dons, Regency fops and rakes, and Victorian slices of life from Dickens and Thackeray. In the last lecture we barrel over hedges and fences and through muddy lanes in headlong chase of the fox. (Pamela Nagami, M.D.)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Pam,

I'm just happy to take part in this project! At least from the first section, it looks like the first chapter will make a perfect follow up from Creighton's writing that viewed the religious, social and political life of a country all together.

As it's a proper name, I'm going to query one thing. Listen back to it yourself and see what you hear:

7.57-8.03, first para p 8
...and was distinguished when at New Inn Hall [heard Hill – I think] at Oxford for his proficiency in Oriental studies.

You are very alert!

Hi Pam,

Sections 1 and 2 are PL OK. Foakes-Jackson choosing to emphasise these aspects of Wesley's character is really a fascinating window on Wesley and Foakes-Jackson. They certainly weren't what was emphasised when I visited Wesley's Chapel!
