Über dieses Produkt
- KurzbeschreibungFrom the end of the seventeenth century to the <br>beginning of the nineteenth century, the large <br>households of the elite represented complex active <br>communities where individuals held interdependent <br>relationships with one another. Throughout the <br>period an elite woman s managerial presence and <br>performance within the dimensions of domestic space <br>were key to her more public image and femininity. <br>From primary sources a complex picture of authority <br>and deftness arises in which the elite woman was <br>expected to run the household within the wider <br>departments of the country estate. For the elite <br>women of the Yorkshire country house, this <br>role was to have been one of difficult decision-<br>making, influenced at all times by degrees of moral <br>judgement over large numbers of people. <br>The domestic space of the country house had long <br>been associated with feminine accomplishment in <br>the delicate art of needlework or the knowledge of <br>pickling and preserving. In her role as household <br>manager an elite woman could actually exercise <br>expressions of power and find that this space was <br>more heavily imbued with command, authority and <br>organisational skill.
