[quote]It’s an unabashedly sensual and sexual story. As far as the period, I’ve had a preoccupation with the Victorian era in terms of how its obsessions and repressions created the modern era. I have no rose-colored glasses for it, and the romanticization of it has annoyed me before, but it fascinates me all the same.
You had contemptuous, murderous, destructive imperialism that ushered in a modern global society; you had gender roles that claimed to venerate women as “angels of the house” by crushing them into increasingly rigid domestic spheres; you had absurd prudish public values underscored by one of the highest percentages of sex workers in recorded history – 1 for every 12 adult males in London. The dualities and hypocrisies – social, sexual and psychological – have always compelled me, in and of themselves, and then in what they created and left lingering through the 20th Century. [/quote]
