Summary
Lettmaier explores ideals of femininity during the 19th and early 20th centuries by charting responses to broken engagements. Interweaving a history of the legal remedies for a broken promise of marriage with literary accounts from Dickens to Wodehouse, it offers an insight into attitudes to female identity
