Books By Author Sophie Gee

Making Waste by Sophie Gee Making Waste, Hardback (December 2009)

Why was eighteenth-century English culture so fascinated with the things its society discarded? This book explains how English writers used contemporary theological and philosophical texts about unwanted and leftover matter to explore secular, literary relationships between waste and value.

Rape of the Lock by Sophie Gee Rape of the Lock, Paperback (August 2007)

A hideous crime is committed at a fashionable London society gathering. The victim is the beautiful, innocent Belinda, her attacker is the dastardly Baron, and his weapon of choice is a pair of scissors...Pope's mock-epic is the sharp and witty tale of the most famous bad hair day in the history of literature.
