This study shows how she sought to reconcile her attachment to the Victorian past with her recognition of a new society that undermined established order and in doing so gave more opportunities to women, confused class-boundaries, extended tolerance, allowed the cult of pleasure and self-assertion and revealed the ambiguities of respectability.
R.A YORK was educated at Emmanuel College Cambridge, UK and University College London. In1969 he joined the University of Ulster, UK, eventually becoming Emeritus Professor of European Literature. He has published on European, British and American literature, with a special interest in literary form and language.
