About this Item

216 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 0.7in.This volume explores womens intricate negotiations for traversing space in Anglo-American literature, written by or about women between the Victorian era and the 1950s. Whereas previous studies have tended to focus on a single aspect of womens engagement with space, be it the urban setting, the domestic interior, or the natural world, this volume considers womens temporary occupation of an array of liminal spaces and its literary representations during the period of approximately one hundred years that permanently changed gender relations. It brings together careful and subtle readings of spaces that are neither strictly private nor incontestably public, and furnishes important evidence that being in transit not only implies crossing, but often actually eradicating established boundaries: between the public and the private, between home and away, and between gender and genre codes. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137330468

About this title

Synopsis:

This volume explores women's intricate negotiations for traversing space in Anglo-American literature, written by or about women between the Victorian era and the 1950s. Whereas previous studies have tended to focus on a single aspect of women's engagement with space, be it the urban setting, the domestic interior, or the natural world, this volume considers women's temporary occupation of an array of liminal spaces and its literary representations during the period of approximately one hundred years that permanently changed gender relations. It brings together careful and subtle readings of spaces that are neither strictly private nor incontestably public, and furnishes important evidence that being 'in transit' not only implies crossing, but often actually eradicating established boundaries: between the public and the private, between home and away, and between gender and genre codes.
