Elsie B. Michie here provides insightful readings of novels by Mary Shelley, Emily and Charlotte Bront , Elizabeth Gaskell, and George Eliot, writers who confronted definitions of femininity which denied them full participation in literary culture. Exploring a series of abhorrent images, Michie traces the links between the Victorian definition of femininity and other forms of cultural exclusion such as race and class distinctions.
