About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon was necessary horror. With it, William T. Stead opened doors, threw back shutters, drew curtains and let pitying Christian eyes see the sights over which voluptuous Londoners were nightly gloating. He showed gins and snares in which simple country girls were nightly caught, to leap and shriek like a hare with the feel of the wire on its foot; he showed the girl-poacher mad with joy in this damnable sport. Stead allowed us to see the stinging, girlish tears, and hear girlish voices full of wild, pitiful despair; which makes us revolt at the cruelty. Upon publication, this noble work was the talk of every home in all England. The appearance of this little known newspaper, Pall Mall Gazette, with The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon, articles, amazed, staggered and stupefied Londoners. And England shrieked, Indecent! As if topics like these could ever be made decent. Unerring excellence of taste, which makes topics like these decent, belongs to the novelists whom languid voluptuaries of clubs and drawing-rooms adore. Stead did not want to make such things decent: it would secure their sale on bookstalls-but what of that? To make them decent would be a horrible lie to the facts as they had been burned into his own brain. Revolting reading, reading to harrow and madden its readers-that was his aim. But it is illegal, said Cavendish Bentinck (a mouthpiece for hosts whose God is The Law. ) He has outraged the law! Cool critics and legal authorities who pace law courts, and study statutes, do not understand such men; how could they understand the anguished author of the Maiden Tribute? All lies; excogitated from his own brain, said many others who were able to bear very sweeping personal testimony to the excellent conduct of London brothels. True enough, maybe, the coloring of horror, and shame, and rage, which he had given his facts were projected into them by his own brain and true enough, his burning disdain, without bounds, without qualification, without mercy, of the offender, who at a weak moment of nervous, silly girlhood, dared to spoil a woman s life, all for a momentary pleasure. Does this seem to be all lies? But behind the lurid personal coloring of Stead s glaring scorn was fact-substance, and from the brothel-keepers came loud denials. So, in the interest of the public, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bishop of London, the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, agreed to examine Mr. Stead s evidence and after five days of investigation, they certified the substantial truth of all his statements, and published their decision to the world. Laws in England changed. The Queen s practically unprotected subjects were now protected. William T. Stead s method of correcting a wrong, landed him in jail. Seller Inventory # APC9781484904541

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Serialized in the Pall Mall Gazette during July, 1885, the Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon created a sensation in Victorian London with its shocking depiction of a rampant child sex trade thriving in the nation s capital. It related stories of girls as young as thirteen who had been inveigled into houses of ill repute by scheming abductresses, where they were pressured, manipulated, or even coerced into prostitution. There were rooms in London, the Gazette revealed, that had been specially padded to stifle their screams. In a zealous effort to demonstrate the horrifying ease with which these hapless young girls were being bought and sold by greedy flesh merchants, editor William T. Stead scandalized the public by successfully purchasing a thirteen year-old girl from her mother for the meager price of 5-a journalistic excess for which he served three months in prison. A controversial milestone in modern journalism, the Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon generated sufficient public outrage to secure passage of the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885, which raised the age of consent in the United Kingdom from thirteen to sixteen.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Serialized in the Pall Mall Gazette during July, 1885, the Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon created a sensation in Victorian London with its shocking depiction of a rampant child sex trade thriving in the nation s capital. It related stories of girls as young as thirteen who had been inveigled into houses of ill repute by scheming abductresses, where they were pressured, manipulated, or even coerced into prostitution. There were rooms in London, the Gazette revealed, that had been specially padded to stifle their screams. In a zealous effort to demonstrate the horrifying ease with which these hapless young girls were being bought and sold by greedy flesh merchants, editor William T. Stead scandalized the public by successfully purchasing a thirteen year-old girl from her mother for the meager price of 5-a journalistic excess for which he served three months in prison. A controversial milestone in modern journalism, the Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon generated sufficient public outrage to secure passage of the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885, which raised the age of consent in the United Kingdom from thirteen to sixteen.
