AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Edwards examines the similarities between Rudd's Cranky Jack and Lower's Jack Gudgeon, concluding that, while the destruction committed by both characters indirectly affects womenfolk through their menfolk, only Jack Gudgeon is conscious of this. Despite the chaos produced by the men in these stories, women are able to maintain domestic stability, reflecting negatively on the behaviour and character of the men.
