The Victorians and Old Age

Karen Chase (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This brief afterward glances at the growing prominence of the elderly by the century's end, and connects it to the increase in visibility brought about by reforms in institutional care, the passing of an Old Age Pensions Bill, the maturing of gerontology as a medical discipline, the increasing awareness of a generational divide, and not the least, by the narratives, journalism and portraits of aging which it has been the task and the pleasure of this book to analyze.

Keywords:   visibility, institution, generation, portrait, medicine, Old Age Pension Bill
