Whilst discussions of gender and space in the nineteenth-to early-twentieth century have typically focused on "women and the city", rural spaces offer equally productive contexts for exploring the intersections between gender and space in this period. As the socio-spatial relations of the country are impacted by the move into modernity, rural environments are revealed in literary and historical texts as sites of complex, contradictory and changing gendered codes.
