‘Toman completes here a thorough reassessment of the literary, cultural and theological influences on Kilvert, bringing us closer than ever before to his character. Meticulously researched and written in a clear, engaging style, the book foregrounds the diarist’s complex and ambivalent relationship with the rapidly developing climate of the mid-nineteenth century.’
Dr Philip Dunham, University of Coventry

‘Toman’s study reveals Kilvert to have been a man who ‘had the curiosity and courage to face the age’s difficult questions.’ The book’s thorough and scholarly approach will ensure that it remains an indispensable tool to all those who wish to understand him and the forces which shaped him.’
