    Book synopsis: Writing as “Michael Field,” Katharine Bradley (1846–1914) and Edith Cooper (1862–1913), the British aunt and niece lesbian couple, produced an enormous and distinguished body of plays and poetry. Long neglected, they now appear frequently in anthologies of Victorian literature, queer literature, and literature by women. This is the first collection of essays to be devoted to their lives, works, relations with contemporaries, and influential legacies, as well as to the critical and theoretical questions raised by their collaboration. The contributors to this volume are some of today’s most prominent scholars of Victorian studies and gender studies from several continents.
