'A little bit of the real Sydney': Comparing Gender, Socialism and the City in Works by William Lane and Christina Stead
Keywords:William Lane, Christina Stead, the city, women, socialism
AbstractThe article compares William Lane's Workingman's Paradise (1892) and Christina Stead's Seven Poor Men of Sydney (1935) as representing the city of Sydney as a gendered political order. It explores how these novels intervene in contemporaneous debates about gender and the 'woman question' in the context of radical socialist thought.
