Summary
The female thermometer is a collection of Professor Castle's liveliest essays on female identity from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century. Throughout the book are woven the themes which are constant in Castle's work: fantasy, hallucination, travesty, transgression, women, and sexual ambiguity. These essays form a coherent and provocative exploration of a range of issues pertinent to gender studies
