Edinburgh Critical Studies in Victorian Culture

  • Reveals the ways in which the couples promoted progressive socio-political ideas
  • Draws on extensive archival research and analyses unpublished writings, including diaries and poems
  • Focuses on neglected female figures in creative partnerships to challenge longstanding perceptions of them as the submissive or subordinate wives of famous Victorian artists, and of their marriages as representatives of the traditional gender binary
  • Shows how male and female writers and artists engaged with mid-to-late Victorian feminism together and individually, reclaiming them as influential early feminists
