Description

The aesthetic movement dominated the closing decades of the nineteenth century. It was significant for the role women played in it at a time when there were growing opportunities for them, both artistically and professionally. The material in this collection provides a representative selection of essays, fiction, poetry and drama by female authors, including Violet Fane, Agnes Garrett and Rhoda Broughton. The collection provides a useful resource for students of nineteenth century art, literature, gender studies and history.
