Critical sites about Shirley
- Consistent Inconsistencies: The Transvestite Actress Madame Vestris and Charlotte Brontë’s Shirley
- ” In this paper I propose the transvestite actress Madame Vestris as an interpretive doppelgänger for the title character in Charlotte Brontë’s novel Shirley. Vestris crossed gender lines not only in her cross-dressed performances on the Victorian stage but also in her incursion into the male-dominated realm of theater ownership. In this way she is like Shirley Keeldar, the fiercely independent female factory owner whom Brontë consistently depicts in masculine terms.”
