Description: How did Victorian women - wittingly or unwittingly - serve the cause of empire? Deirdre David here explores women's role in the literature of the colonial and imperial British nation, both as writers and as subjects of representation. Her work offers a rare close look at the intersection of gender and race in Victorian literature and empire building. David's inquiry juxtaposes the parliamentary speeches of Thomas Macaulay and the private letters of Emily Eden, a trial in Calcutta and the missionary literature of Victorian women. David shows how, in these texts and in novels such as Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, Charles Dickens's Dombey and Son, Wilkie Collins's Moonstone, and H. Rider Haggard's She, the historical and symbolic roles of Victorian women were linked to the British enterprise abroad.
