Abstract "Employs transimperial reading, queer theory, disability studies, and philosophies of the formation of human society to scrutinize nineteenth-century marriage--grappling with questions of women's relation to education, careers, science, and crime and aiming to widen the repertoire of critical questions asked about how fiction represents conjugal coupling"-- Provided by publisher.
