[Anthony Trollope]


Novel, Serial


Monstrosities, Gender

    Miss Dunstable likens her position as a wealthy unmarried woman to that of a 'two-headed sheep' whose abnormality is the 'only thing which the world regards in that sheep'. She reflects, 'All this money which my father put together [...] has turned me in to an abortion. I am not the giantess eight feet high, or the dwarf that stands in the man's hand— [...] But I am the unmarried woman with—half a dozen millions of money—as I believe some people think'. (58)
