Imperialism at Home: Race and Victorian Women's Fiction

Synopsis

"Meyer's readings are most interesting when she charts the different ways in which the metaphorical linkage between gender and race rebellion collapses or is rewritten as the narrative proceeds. By giving us a complex sense of the multiple routes the connection between race and gender could take, Meyer's book beautifully maps out the ideological limits of what Raymond Williams calls a 'structure of feeling'"-Elsie B.
