Ok, well, take those three factors:
1. The immense new market of potential readers created by the Forster’s Education Act
2. the strong efforts to clean up the mighty (and above all dirty and overpolluted….) Thames by the Thames Conservancy Board
3. the suburban areas surrounding London and spreading and growing at a fast pace
The set is complete and ready. And so was the “Idler” Jerome to write about three men in boat….(to say nothing of the dog!).
As far as I know, it’s the very first time in the history of literature that a writer talks about “overwork” and need to have “some rest and complete change” in order to “restore the mental equilibrium”. This book is the official literally welcome to 20th century and the new mass-culture era.
