Writing as "Michael Field," Katharine Bradley (1846-1914) and Edith Cooper (1862-1913), the British aunt and niece lesbian couple, produced an enormous and distinguished body of plays and poetry. Long neglected, they now appear frequently in anthologies of Victorian literature, queer literature, and literature by women. This is the first collection of essays to be devoted to their lives, works, relations with contemporaries, and influential legacies, as well as to the critical and theoretical questions raised by their collaboration. The contributors to this volume are some of today's most prominent scholars of Victorian studies and gender studies from several continents. They offer readers new, interdisciplinary ways of looking at Bradley and Cooper's engagement with figures ranging from Matthew Arnold, Walter Pater, and Charles Ricketts to pioneering women, such as Louise Chandler Moulton, Ella Hepworth Dixon, and Radclyffe Hall.Drawing on archives, visual resources, and on the evidence of book design, these essays put Michael Field's literary achievements into a material context, at the same time that they open up issues of spirituality by examining the significance of worship, whether pagan or Christian, for Bradley and Cooper. With its wide coverage of topics that include feminism, classicism, philosophy, sexuality, theatre, religion, art history, and Victorian print culture, this volume will prove valuable to many different audiences.
