    Abstract

    McCabe argues that Benjamin demonstrates his deep ambivalence about bourgeois discourse in The Arcades Project. She suggests the feminist issues at the heart of the text, most particularly though a discussion of modernity and prostitution. She also discusses Paris in the nineteenth century, commenting on its character and the commercial activities housed within it.
