The Flesh Made Word

Female Figures and Women's Bodies

Helena Michie

This provocative work examines how women's bodies are portrayed in a variety of Victorian literary and non-literary genres--from paintings, poems, and novels, to etiquette books, sex manuals, and pornography--and offers fresh readings of the Brontës, Dickens, Eliot, Hardy, Adrienne Rich, Audre Lorde, and many others.
