Summary

The female performer with a public voice constitutes a remarkably vibrant theme in British and American narratives of the long nineteenth century. The tension between fictional female performers and other textual voices can be seen to refigure the cultural debate over the ïvoiceÍ of women in aesthetically complex ways. By focusing on singers, actresses, preachers and speakers, this book explores an important tradition of feminine articulation.
