From the Publisher"I was eagerly awaiting the publication of this book. It did not disappoint me. Well-researched, well-articulated, and well-explicated, it clearly proves her an expert on social dance customs and literary manifestations of them in the nineteenth century...In short, this book is a lucid, smart analysis of social dance, showing how literary dance scenes signify larger social discourses—on the New Woman, for instance—and how actual dance moves represent elements of the fictional narratives (as when quadrille sets stand in for inflexible social hierarchies)."
