Synopsis: This work looks at the legacy of love between women in the English canon from romantic to postcolonial literature. It examines layers of homoeroticism in works by male and female authors, and demonstrates the place of lesbian desire in the Western literary imagination.

Review: Academic literary criticism can often be a tough read. Luckily, this is not the case with Ruth Vanita's Sappho and the Virgin Mary, a compelling look at how these twin images of sex and celibacy--both outside the world of men--have brought the idea and meaning of lesbianism to British writing. Vanita has a likable style that makes the literature she explicates--Keats, the Brontes, Christina Rossetti, E. M. Forster, George Eliot--live again in a new light. Beautifully argued and intelligently written, Sappho and the Virgin Mary surprises us on every page, making us reexamine previous assumptions in a new light.
