This brilliantly witty novel (1894) follows the lives of two sisters in a wealthy Scots family. One escapes to a profession in London and eventually a decent marriage while the heroine, Hadria, vows to become a composer in Paris, but is thwarted. The Daughters of Danaus reveals the power of marriage and the family hold in controlling the lives of talented, spirited women; but unlike other oppressed heroines of the period, Hadria and her feminism both survive. The books includes a trailblazing essay on marriage published by Caird, a visionary novelist and social critic.

About the Author:
Mona Caird (1932-1969) was a visionary feminist, novelist, and social critic.
Review:
"Feminists of the 1890s have much to say to feminists of the 1990s. The extraordinary detective work and critical acumen of Margaret Gullette have restored Mona Caird's The Daughters of Danaus to the canon of 'New Women' literature. The Daughters of Danaus is an important and welcome edition."
Elaine Showalter

"Mona Caird is a treasure in whose rediscovery we can truly rejoice. Caird, her heroine Hadria, and her editor Margaret Gullette, speak eloquently of women's strengths we can emulate."
Mary Anne Ferguson

"I am delighted that the Feminist Press is publishing this important and highly readable book by a pivotal fin-de-siècle feminist. Critics have too long neglected the important role played by women authors in establishing the terms of the debate for both literature and feminism during the 1890s. The publication of The Daughters of Danaus should help to rectify this situation."
