Essay from the year 2007 in the subject History - Miscellaneous,
grade: -, Humboldt-University of Berlin (Centre for British
Studies), course: British History, language: English, abstract: In
this paper I would like to demonstrate the historical antecedents
of the cultural change Britain went through in the nineteenth
century as it finds its expression in the construction of a new
type of urban institution: the music hall. I will scrutinize the
drives that brought in its emergence as a mass entertainment
industry by presenting the economic and social factors that
prepared the necessary background. By relating the innovations that
reshaped the Victorian population, I will try to illustrate the
ground upon which this new institution was built. By giving an
account of the responses from different sections of the society, I
will try to establish the music hall as a product of the new urban
population. After delivering a brief history of its evolution I
will try to portray the great success it attained. Finally, I will
analyse one of the popular entertainment forms it offered in order
to understand the values it represented and how it reflected and
shaped the cultural trends.
