The introduction contextualises representations of female oddity between the 1850s and the Second World War in relation to debates within queer theory about heteronormativity, queer subjectivities, relations between women and gender non-conformity. It tracks changing attitudes to female singleness in relation to the rise of feminism, considering debates around women's work, sexuality and suffrage. It introduces debates around female auto/biography and queer auto/biography, and considers the ways in which modernity was conceptualised in this period.
