Mapping the relationship between gender and space in eighteenthand
early nineteenth-century British literature, this collection explores
new cartographies, both geographic and figurative. In addition to
incisive analyses of specific works, a group of essays on Charlotte
Smith’s novels and a group of essays on natural philosophy offer case
studies for exploring issues of gender and space within larger fields,
such as an author’s oeuvre or a discourse.
