Sketches of English Character by Catherine Gore
Book DescriptionWritten by the prolific Victorian author Catherine Gore, best known for her novels about high society, "Sketches of English Character" is a reaction to what she saw as the lack of individuality in that society. In a series of witty and observant short stories, she describes what she believes to be the stereotypical figures of Victorian life. From the interfering Chaperon getting in the way of the Debutante's romantic expectations, to the overblown pomposity of the family butler, who runs the household with an iron fist but ingratiates himself with the master, Gore brings to life in an engaging and entertaining manner the characters that best denote her generation of Englishmen and women. This is the second volume of two, containing sketches of the 'Lady Patroness,' the 'Optimist and the Pessimist' and the 'Lady-Killer.'

Author Biography - Catherine Gore
Catherine Gore was born in 1799. As a child she wrote poetry and was called 'the poetess' by her friends. Within a year of her marriage she had embarked upon a prolific writing career which was to last for more than three decades and produce more than 60 published works, both novels and plays. Her novels, noted for their wit, were very popular at the time; her obituary in The Times in 1861 called her 'the best novel writer of her class and the wittiest woman of her age.'
