Designing Women

£12.99

Product description

Bucknell University Press, 2005. Chico. T. Hardback condition: used very good++. Dj not price clipped, minimal shelf wear overall, pages clean and bright, from the Bucknell studies in Eighteenth Century Literature and Culture series. Dressing rooms, introduced into English domestic architecture during the seventeenth century provided elite women with private space at home and in so doing promised them autonomy by providing a space for self-fashioning, eroticism and contemplation. Tita Chico's Designing Women argues that the dressing room becomes a powerful metaphor in late-seventeenth- and eighteenth-century literature for both progressive and conservative satirists and novelists. These writers use the trope to represent competing notions of women's' independence and their objectification indicating that the dressing room occupies a central (if neglected) place in the history of private life.
