⇁ ൌ Between Women: Friendship, Desire, and Marriage in Victorian England eBook: Sharon Marcus: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EU S.à r.l. download ⣬ ePUB Author Sharon Marcus ⥆ Queen Victoria would not be amused In this persuasively argued, provocative book, Marcus makes the case that women in late 19th century England engaged in intimate friendshipswhich the Victorians believed cultivated the feminine virtues of sympathy and altruismthat often had a sexual component of visual objectification and even sexual intimacy Marcus, associate professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia, probes a wide range of the period s culturenovels of Dickens, Trollope and George Eliot women s fashion magazines female children s literature doll storiesto understand a Victorian culture that is not interpreted by our present day belief that heterosexual norms dominate all lives Going against the current academic grain, Marcus maintains that images of women in fashion magazines did not turn women into passive objects but represented women s own erotic appetite for femininity Much of Marcus s material will be new to the common reader, and she presents it in plain, engaging prose Many of her examples are marvelously intriguing her critique of the conservative opposition to same sex marriage is bolstered by her documentation of prevalent female female marriage in the 19th century involving such noted women as Charlotte Cushman, Anne Lister and Rosa Bonheur This is an important addition to the current literature on sexuality and gender Feb Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Women in Victorian England wore jewelry made from each other s hair and wrote poems celebrating decades of friendship They pored over magazines that described the dangerous pleasures of corporal punishment A few had sexual relationships with each other, exchanged rings and vows, willed each other property, and lived together in long term partnerships described as marriages But, as Sharon Marcus shows, these women were not seen as gender outlaws Their desires were fanned by consumer culture, and their friendships and unions were accepted and even encouraged by family, society, and church Far from being sexless angels defined only by male desires, Victorian women openly enjoyed looking at and even dominating other women Their friendships helped realize the ideal of companionate love between men and women celebrated by novels, and their unions influenced politicians and social thinkers to reform marriage law. Through a close examination of literature, memoirs, letters, domestic magazines, and political debates, Marcus reveals how relationships between women were a crucial component of femininity Deeply researched, powerfully argued, and filled with original readings of familiar and surprising sources, Between Women overturns everything we thought we knew about Victorian women and the history of marriage and family life It offers a new paradigm for theorizing gender and sexuality not just in the Victorian period, but in our own.
