Description

In a literary high-wire act, Bruce Robinson offers a radical reinterpretation of Jack the Ripper, contending that he was not the madman of common legend, but the vile manifestation of the Victorian Age's moral bankruptcy. In exploring the case of Jack the Ripper, Robinson asserts that any "gentlemen" that walked above the fetid gutters of London, the nineteenth century's most depraved city, often harbored proclivities both violent and taboo-yearnings that went entirely unpunished, especially if he bore royal connections. As Robinson makes clear with his unique brilliance, the Ripper was far from a poor resident of Whitechapel he was a way of life.
