Synopsis

This book explores women's culture and duty in the Victorian novel. The nineteenth century leisured lady disturbs modern sensibilities, as codes of strict gentility prevented women from scrubbing their own floors, from feeding or diapering their own infants, and especially from working for wages. Leisure for middle class Victorian women encompassed their entire lives: it determined women's education, upbringing, life aspirations, manners, and codes of conduct. Walters examines several Victorian novels in discussing and analyzing the cultural heritage of the lady.
