Editorial Reviews

Review

"I was eagerly awaiting the publication of this book. It did not disappoint me. Well-researched, well-articulated, and well-explicated, it clearly proves her an expert on social dance customs and literary manifestations of them in the nineteenth century...In short, this book is a lucid, smart analysis of social dance, showing how literary dance scenes signify larger social discourses--on the New Woman, for instance--and how actual dance moves represent elements of the fictional narratives (as when quadrille sets stand in for inflexible social hierarchies)."
-Alissa Clapp-Intyre, nbol-19.org

Book Description

This book analyses works by Jane Austen, W. M. Thackeray, George Eliot and Anthony Trollope, as well as extensive material from nineteenth-century dance manuals, to show how dance provided a vehicle through which writers could convey social commentary and cultural critique on issues such as gender, social mobility, and nationalism.
