Investigates the conviction passed on by the Victorian novel that a woman's love is the fortune a man can count on to last. This work studies the diverse ways that the Victorian novel imagines women as property removed from the uncertainties of the marketplace. It addresses literary and cultural theory, gender studies, and gay and lesbian studies.
