This was a fascinating book to be reading at the same time as Rachilde's Monsieur Venus as both are written by women and deal with restrictions on gender roles transvestism and women reaching beyond the boundaries of their late 19th century society But while Rachilde's book is brief and decadent Sarah Grand's New Woman novel is thoroughly Victorian in its sensibility Grand's women are painted most often as victims though two of her three heroines have happy if compromise endings; her men are either villainous or rational and sympathetic to the point of saintliness I began it shortly after teaching excerpts from Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Women and found that despite the hundred years that had passed the issues of women's education and independence Wollstonecraft had raised were still very much in play The book is a bit ponderous but it's well worth reading for anyone interested in women's issues and gender roles in the late Victorian era

Best Kindle The Heavenly Twins author Sarah Grand This is very good. The Heavenly Twins is the kind of triple decker Victorian novel that is easy to make fun of uite aside from its individual characteristics which are also easy to make fun of This is a strange book but an interesting one Grand's challenge to Victorian morality ends up just as moralizing as her opponents and what was controversial then reads than a little dated today And frankly even by the standards some of her contemporaries Grand is kind of bourgeois and banal as far as morality and gender analysis is concernedI read this book for a class and wrote a paper on it so as you can imagine there is some PTSD I don't think Grand is a great stylist but I think her political statement is interesting and complicated than people tend to give her credit forThere are two other books connected to this one They are Ideala which is set before THT and The Beth Book which follows it

Fascinating as a piece of historical interest I kept writing uote after uote in a notebook As a novel a bit all over the place a bit heavy handed in places a bit baffling in others You spend half the time going yes we understand your point stop laying it on so thick Then you get big sections where you are not sure what the point is at all Grand should have been allowed in parliament then she wouldn't have had to try to write a novel She clearly was an excellent speech writer Read as part of an online literature class with the WEA Workers’ Educational Association
