Jack the Ripper (England Culture)

 Jack the Ripper


Hi guys!

Let me tell you about something that really caught my attention when I was researching about England and her culture, the famous Jack the ripper.
You may think that this man was not even real, but it turns out it was one of the most cruel serial killer in the country, specifically in London, terrorizing an entire people that can’t even go out to the streets because of the fear in their hearts.
Obviously it is hard to believe, but let me tell you this mysterious and exciting story from the beginning.

I was researching 1 topic in general, which it was about the culture and the people of London when suddenly I notice that people in the 19th century (Victorian era) was so scared of walking in the streets of London, why? It was all because of a man known as Jack the ripper. From the moment I read that, the curiosity ran through my veins and I couldn’t help investigate this man.

Jack the ripper (as people called it) was a serial killer that to this day remains anonymous, in their murders were involved most of the time female prostitutes.

Nobody could ever solve the mystery and nobody could catch jack, but, what has all this to do with the culture of England? , beyond the fear of the people at that time, the media spread the story of jack all across the country until this man became folklore in England and an inspiration for a lot of movies and biographies. 

Nowadays the story of Jack the Ripper is recognized in every single place of the Earth.


Do you think that the legend of this man impulse London to be a tourist place and also at that time to be the cause of so much fear in the people?

  1. I knew about this story! The mistery is even bigger, was Jack the real name of this killer? How many people did he really kill?
    In Chile we don't know the relevance of his figure in England.
    People used to represent him as a monster and they told stories about him, so I think he wasn't just another killer, he became a part of the culture.

    I think and ask myself, how people remember this man, like a character with a whit scared?
    It is very interesting that this man became an inspiration for a lot of directors, because even though he was a serial killer he became a legend.
    So, how can London be a touristic and at the same time a terrorific place?
    mmm It just its cultural identity.
