  • Epigraph: But then, if she had been faultless, she could not have been the heroine of this story; for I think some wise man of old remarked that the perfect women were those who left no histories behind them, but went through life on such a tranquil course of quiet well-doing as left no foot-prints on the sands of time; only mute records hidden here and there, deep in the grateful hearts of those who had been blessed by them. -- [Mary Elizabeth] Braddon, [Aurora Floyd]

    y separately published work icon The Unsociable Sociability of Women's Lifewriting Anne Collett (editor), Louise D'Arcens (editor), Houndmills : Palgrave Macmillan , 2010 Z1743469 2010 anthology criticism This collection of essays applies the concept of 'unsocial sociability' (traced in the anthology's introduction through the work of Kant, Montaigne and Rousseau) to a wide range of women's lifewriting texts. 'With its cross-cultural and transhistorical perspective, the volume makes a distinctive contribution to current debates on women's lifewriting. Its emphasis on unsocial sociability offers a timely, provocative response to the established notion of the female self as a relational subject.'
