University of Delaware Press, 1999 - 362 páginas
The contributors to this volume offer a wide range of topics, perspectives, and approaches as they explore issues of gender and cultural cross-dressing. The meanings inherent in theatrical costuming; the ways in which novels, journals, and prints disseminated ideas about fashion, status, and gender; and present case studies of cultural practices relating to clothing are examined. The ways in which dress articulates transformations in the economic conditions, social relations, and ideological constructions of the culture of the eighteenth century are also traced. Illustrated.

Página 37 - A True-born Englishman's a contradiction, In speech an irony, in fact a fiction, A banter made to be a test of fools, Which those that use it justly ridicules, A metaphor invented to express A man akin to all the universe.
