9780199538300: The Odd Women (Oxford World's Classics)

A novel of social realism, The Odd Women reflects the major sexual and cultural issues of the late nineteenth century. Unlike the "New Woman" novels of the era which challenged the idea that the unmarried woman was superfluous, Gissing satirizes that image and portrays women as "odd" and marginal in relation to an ideal. Set in a grimy, fog-ridden London, Gissing's "odd" women range from the idealistic, financially self-sufficient Mary Barfoot to the Madden sisters who struggle to subsist in low paying jobs and little chance for joy. With narrative detachment, Gissing portrays contemporary society's blatant ambivalence towards its own period of transition. Judged by contemporary critics to be as provocative as Zola and Ibsen, Gissing produced an "intensely modern" work as the issues it raises remain the subject of contemporary debate.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book. there are half a million more women than men in this unhappy country of ours .So many odd women - no making a pair with them. The idea of the superfluity of unmarried women was one the New Woman novels of the 1890s sought to challenge. But in The Odd Women (1893) Gissing satirizes the prevailing literary image of the New Woman and makes the point that unmarried women were generally viewed less as noble and romantic figures than as odd and marginal in relation to the ideal of womanhood itself. Set in grimy, fog-ridden London, these odd women range from the idealistic, financially self-sufficient Mary Barfoot and Rhoda Nunn, who run a school to train young women in office skills for work, to the Madden sisters struggling to subsist in low-paid jobs and experiencing little comfort or pleasure in their lives. Yet it is for the youngest Madden sister s marriage that the novel reserves its most sinister critique. With superb detachment Gissing captures contemporary society s ambivalence towards its own period of transition. The Odd Women is a novel engaged with all the major sexual and social issues of the late-nineteenth century. Judged by contemporary reviewers as equal to Zola and Ibsen, Gissing was seen to have produced an intensely modern work and it is perhaps for this reason that the issues it raises remain the subject of contemporary debate. *Introduction *Textual Note *Bibliography *Chronology *Explanatory Notes *Map ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
