In late nineteenth century England millions of women were condemned to live a life of shabby genteel desperation because there simply weren't enough men to have for husbands and virtually no actual employment was possible This is the horribly narrow lonely fate endured by one woman here but it's far better than the fates of two of her siblings alcoholism and marriage to a well meaning but unendurable ogre It's an alien world with its strained proprieties and cock eyed values yet Gissing's treatment of it is so good honest fresh angry insightful way ahead of its time and yet scarcely ever didactic that many many pages seem to describe scenes and emotions that are wholly modern And on top of all this we get Rhoda Nunn a magnificently complex brave fraught proto feminist trying almost singl

    Epub adultdating3x.uk Ö Odd Women Kindle Ë women kindle, Odd Women PDFA riveting novel exploring the nascent rumblings of female emancipation with a cast of strong and memorable characters serving up a long and thoughtful series of ruminations on the problems of Victorian marriage and divorce laws and the basic humbuggering that befell women who liked to think things and not sew uilts for eight hours a day The two main narrative threads concern an emancipated woman conflicted by the attentions of a man who is attracted to emancipated women with dreams of dominating one and a man who marries a seeming doormat who turns out to like thinking and refuses to bend to her master’s wishes A plethora of mild mannered cacophonies ensue in one of Gissing’s finest and less despairing

    Epub adultdating3x.uk Ö Odd Women Kindle Ë women kindle, Odd Women PDF ”So many odd women—no making a pair with them” Before I read this book I thought of only one meaning of the word “odd” strange unusual The sentence above from Chapter IV brought to focus another meaning If there are “half a million women than men” in England and their main purpose is to be married off what is there to do with the left overs?—the so called woman uestion Rhoda Dunn is determined to train the many women who are fit for it She wishes the workforce of females those barely surviving on low wages in menial jobs instead of “creeping to their garrets and hospitals” to die were instead dying “of hunger in the streets” for the “crowd to stare at” though she admits the crowd “might only congratulate each other that a few of the superfluous females had been struck off” With this novel’s irony and humor I thought of George Meredith’s The Ordeal of Richard Fever

    Epub adultdating3x.uk Ö Odd Women Kindle Ë women kindle, Odd Women PDFIn his day in the late Victorian age Gissing was one of the most popular novelists But he is not well known today his contemporaries Trollope Hardy and James having aged much better than Gissing has Indeed neither the Oxford Anthology of English Literature Victorian Prose and Poetry nor the Norton Anthology of English Literature has an entry for his writing and the Oxford Anthology doesn't even mention him in its Suggestions for Further Reading The Teaching Company course on The English Novel has no discussion of him His contemporary obscurity is a shame because while he may not be a first rank writer some of his novels and most of his short stories are certainly worth reading The Odd Women is one of his better known novels though in my view not as strong as either New Grub Street or The Nether WorldThe o
