This collection of essays, both feminist and historical,
analyzes power relations between men and women in the Victorian
period. This volume is the first to reshape Victorian studies from
the perspective of the postmodern return to history, and is
variously influenced by Marxism, sociology, anthropology, and
post-structuralist theories of language and subjectivity. It
analyzes the struggle for legitimacy and recognition in Victorian
institutions and the struggle over meanings in ideological
representation of the gendered subject in texts.
Contributors cover diverse topics, including Victorian
ideologies of motherhood, the male gaze, the cult of the male child
genius in narrative painting, the press, and Victorian women and
the French Revolution, discussing both well-known and less familiar
