Abstract

Typically, analyses of Louise Otto's novel Schloß und Fabrik (1846) have focused on the issues surrounding the factory and the unique way Otto involves her female characters in exposing and combatting a new form of poverty. In contrast, this reading of the novel emphasizes the role the question of class or social status plays in delineating and constraining Otto's feminine ideal. Structural elements of the text, such as representative figures and redundancies, are reexamined in light of the "cultural work" the novel was intended to do. (HGM-K)
