In this series, Lucy Worsley delves into the history of romance to uncover the forces shaping our happily ever after. It reveals how even our most intimate thoughts and feelings have been affected by social, political and cultural ideas. Worsley's exploration of three centuries of love's rituals begins in the Georgian age. She explores the glamorization of romantic love that followed the emergence of the romantic novel in the 18th century by examining the works of Samuel Richardson, Fanny Burney and Jane Austen. Worsley discovers how medieval chivalry shaped Victorian courtship, and explores the influence of valentine's cards and flowers on romantic lives. And she uncovers the way that literary passions -- in novels by writers such as Charlotte Bronte, Mrs. Henry Wood and H.G. Wells -- translated into real-life desires, changing the way the British felt.
