Place Matters gendered geography in Victorian women’s travel books about Southeast Asia
Morgan, Susan
Rutgers Uni Press USA 1996 
 Papeback Susan Morgan's study of materials and regions previously neglected in contemporary postcolonial studies begins with the transforming premise that "place matters." Concepts derived from writings about one area of the world cannot simply be transposed to another area, in some sort of global theoretical move. Moreover, place in the discourse of Victorian imperialism is a matter of gendered as well as geographic terms. Morgan makes extensive use of theorists whose work on imperialism in Southeast Asia is unfamiliar to most American academics. This vivid examination of a different region and different writings emphasizes that in Victorian literature there was no monolithic imperialist location, authorial or geographic. The very notion of a "colony" or an "imperial presence" in Southeast Asia is problematic. Morgan is concerned with marking the intersections of particular Victorian imperial histories and constructions of subjectivity. She argues that specific places in Southeast Asia have distinctive, and differing, masculine imperial rhetorics. It is within these specific rhetorical contexts that women's writings, including their moments of critique, can be read. 600g + 345 perfect pp  Very Good/None issued

A Biography of Frieda Lawrence
Byrne, Janet
Bloomsbury  1995 
 Hard Cover Frieda's fascinating life & travels through England, Australia, Mexico. This biography defies the conventional portrait of Frieda Lawrence as love goddess and Earth mother, depicting instead a strong-willed, independent-minded, creative woman who broke every social and sexual taboo of her time. The book takes readers through Frieda's tumultuous life, from her aristocratic Prussian childhood through to her first marriage to a staid English professor in Nottingham, her wild affair with the cocaine-addicted psychoanalyst and free-love advocate Otto Gross, the scandalous abandonment of her husband and three children for the love of a coal miner's son who would become one of the 20th-century's greatest novelists, to her years at Mabel Dodge Luhan's artists' colony in Taos, first with Lawrence and then with her third husband, the handsome if hapless Captain Angelino Ravagli. Frieda appeared in every major novel Lawrence wrote during their 18 years together, from The Rainbow to Lady Chatterley's Lover. She was his most trusted reader and she had an anti-intellectual sure-footedness that helped shape one of the most famously embattled unions of the century.Ex-library with stamps & borrow slip (borrowed 7x) 504pp clean & white, binding tight.  Very Good/No Jacket
