“As Good as Nowhere”: Dickens’s Dombey and Son, the Contingency of Value, and Theories of Domesticity
“In the discussion of Charles Dickens’s 1848 novel Dombey and Son that follows, I examine the split between the economic and the sexual itself as a principal catalyst in the creation of a new model of value in both spheres in which value is created through exchange.”
Contains: Historical Context
