Abstract

This article examines the politics of female pleasure in Millenium Hallboth in relation to the contemporary economic theories with which it engages, and in the light of the anonymous Histories of Some of the Penitents in the Magdalen-Houseupon which Scott's text is substantially modelled. When read in these contexts, this article suggests that the much vaunted pleasures of the ladies of Millenium Hallappear decidedly penitential. The argument is framed by a discussion of the problematic status of influential but “conservative” female writers for feminist scholarship.
