A novel of social realism, The Odd Women reflects the major sexual and cultural issues of the late nineteenth century. Unlike the "New Woman" novels of the era which challenged the idea that the unmarried woman was superfluous, Gissing satirizes that image and portrays women as "odd" andmarginal in relation to an ideal. Set in a grimy, fog-ridden London, Gissing's "odd" women range from the idealistic, financially self-sufficient Mary Barfoot to the Madden sisters who struggle to subsist in low paying jobs and little chance for joy. With narrative detachment, Gissing portrayscontemporary society's blatant ambivalence towards its own period of transition. Judged by contemporary critics to be as provocative as Zola and Ibsen, Gissing produced an "intensely modern" work as the issues it raises remain the subject of contemporary debate.… (mere)

    CurrerBell: Miss Miles, published in 1890 and centered on "Brontë country" in Yorkshire in the 1830s, was authored by Mary Taylor, who along with Ellen Nussey was one of Charlotte Brontë's two best friends from boarding-school days.

I learned a lot about myself hike reading this excellent book. I didn’t realize how completely conditioned I am to both expect and desire a conventional romantic “happy ending.”
Gissing’s story of several Victorian-era women who are “odd” in more than one sense is mesmerizing. The main character is Rhoda, a fiercely independent woman who eventually falls in love with a man. The working-out of their relationship forms the backbone of the book, but many other characters and plots are explored.
Although Rhoda and her friend Mary are on the upper side of middle class, Gissing includes several working-class women and their struggles; none are trivialized. He has a fascinating insight into women’s problems and ideas.
The weak spot of the book is a trite solution to a particular problem. But that solution is also realistic in its own way. All in all, this is a great exploration of the hopes, fears, and ideals of Victorian women. Be warned though, that it’s not in any sense a light read. ( )

This read was an unexpected masterpiece for me. Absolutely recommended to those who are interested in Women's studies and such, but even aside from that - recommended to anyone - this is not one of those feminist books you will think pretentious. I would venture to call it a humanist book, rather, and with a focus on the female problems which are still relevant today. I still maintain that this was a book ahead of its time, and to us it can show how our current lives, our world - our time came about. Personally, I feel I have become a hundred times richer as a human being by reading it.
P.S. For anyone interested, a Project Gutenberg e-book edition of the work can be obtained online without any charge. This book is now public domain. ( )

I found Gissing's women to be more "stock" characters, in contrast with the deeper and more rounded portrayals in Mary Taylor's Miss Miles. ( )

Isabel was soon worked into illness. Brain trouble came on, resulting in melancholia.

'So to-morrow, Alice,' said Dr Madden, as he walked with his eldest daughter on the coast -downs by Clevedon, 'I shall take steps for insuring my life for a thousand pounds.'
Ridiculed by men, treated with scornful anxiety by other women, the old maid is a traditional figure of fun. (Introduction)
