This chapter examines the cultural attitudes towards women novelists during Kavanagh's lifetime. It shows Kavanagh's importance as a novelist who drew on the cultural contradictions of the period, and suggests that her insights into gender and class differences were essential to her writing. The chapter then studies six of Kavanagh's works, including Daisy Burns and Rachel Gray, and aims to demonstrate Kavanagh's diversity as a novelist during the nineteenth century.

Keywords:   cultural attitudes, women novelists, cultural contradictions, gender differences, class differences, Daisy Burns, Rachel Gray
