Talk by W. L. Burn
W. L. Burn, Professor of Modern History at King's College, Newcastle upon Tyne, speaks about the rise and fall of a man who cut a great figure at the mid-Victorian Bar and who would not have gone half so far if Victorian society had been as staid, as comprehensively and rigidly righteous as we sometimes imagine.'
