Nobody's Angels: Middle-Class Women and Domestic Ideology in Victorian Culture

Synopsis

"Langland's account is deeply provocative, and it is elaborated with great intellectual integrity.... Her readings are astute, and her dexterity at balancing strong claims about gender and class against her theoretical fidelity to the demands of writing a discontinuous, non-traditional account of cultural politics is impressive and instructive. Nobody's Angels is, without doubt, essential reading for students of nineteenth-century culture, and it will significantly alter the ways we reconcile the ideologies of public and private spheres."-John Kucich, University of Michigan. Novel. Spring, 1996.
