James Greenwood (. 835-1927) was one of eleven children, born to a Lambeth coach trimmer. Many of these were anthologised into book form, but The Seven Curses of London was written as a single campaigning work, designed to stimulate debate about the manifold evils which beset the urban poor. To certain squeamish readers this useful and well-written volume will prove an unsavoury book; and even to those who have the nerve to witness agony and explore the lurking-places of crime, it will occasion no ordinary sadness and sense of repugnance. Redolent with the unwholesome smell of ill-drained alleys and over-crowded dwellings for the poor, it resounds in every chapter with the cries of violence and the mutterings of woe.

What an interesting wee book. A voice of reason and caring in an age where it seems that none existed - where children were used indiscriminantely as labour in unsanitary and extremely unsafe conditions, those who were insane were used as side shows etc etc. The author advocates better care and conditions for all including sex workers. Interesting and, at the same time, horrendous especially in relations to what he writes about.

I had seen references to this in Kellow Chesney's "Victorian Underworld" but didn't realize it's availability until recently. As an Irish reader the item on the Curragh Wrens was surprising in a book on London but a real insight into something I had heard of almost as a folktale. The only problem as I said was the florid writing so beloved by Victorian writers including journalists.

I learned many interesting facts about life in that era. It is hard to believe that living conditions were so bad in a relatively modern age.

Verbose and undirected writing..Too much of Greenwood...not enough of the subject of address.

I liked the book enough and the writing was done really well. I would definately read the authors books in the future

It really didn't hold my interest. James has a series of books in this genre and I personally would not buy others.

It was written in 19th century English which was very difficult to interpret, and made it a chore to read. I am a voracious reader (especially historic texts and novels) and I rarely give up on a book, but this one......! I read about 20% of it and gave up - it was not a pleasure to read. I could not comment on the subject itself as I was too busy interpreting what I was reading to take in what the author was trying to say.
