Material Relations tells the story of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century middle-class families by exploring the domestic spaces they inhabited and the material goods they prized. By opening the doors of the house, the book sheds new light on aspects of family life including love, marriage, sex, childhood, and death. Historians have argued that as the nineteenth century waned, domestic spaces became increasingly private. Material Relations challenges this, contending that domestic space created a complex series of family intimacies. Drawing upon novels, advice manuals, and magazines, alongside sources for everyday use such as diaries, autobiographies, sale catalogs and inventories, wills and photographs, this fascinating book will be of particular interest to scholars and students of modern history, English literature, cultural studies, social geography, history of art, and history of design.
