Virginal Sexuality and Textuality in Victorian Literature, Numero 1

Etukansi
Lloyd Davis
SUNY Press, 1.1.1993 - 257 sivua
This book examines the figure of the virgin, a symbol central to many aspects of society and sexuality in nineteenth-century England, and its effects on the Victorian literary imagination. Studying the virgin as a social, sexual, and literary phenomenon, the volume contributes to current critical accounts of the relations among the body and language, gender, and discourse.

These essays explore the ways in which virginity is not a natural ideal but a complex cultural and literary sign. The authors rethink the virginal as a textual counter-example to the idealization of natural sexuality.
