Abstract

Mapping the relationship between gender and space in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century British literature, this collection explores new cartographies, both geographic and figurative. In addition to incisive analyses of specific works, a group of essays on Charlotte Smith’s novels and a group of essays on natural philosophy offer case studies for exploring issues of gender and space within larger fields, such as an author’s oeuvre or a discourse.
