Flamboyant, theatrical and ambitious, Margaret Cavendish was one of the seventeenth century's most striking figures: a woman who ventured into the male spheres of politics, science, philosophy and literature.

The Blazing World is a highly original work: part Utopian fiction, part feminist text, it tells of a lady shipwrecked on the Blazing World where she is made Empress and uses her. The first two pieces "The Contract" and "Assaulted and Pursued Chastity" are basic romance stories in which the heroine will go to any lengths to preserve her chastity to ensure that she makes a good marriage.

The Contract is pure mush, but Cavendish does display some wit especially in her praise of older men.4/5(2).One form of female relationship which is central to both 'The Contract' and 'Assaulted and Pursued Chastity' is that of the adversarial contest between current and future wives' (1).

Both stories involve a conflict between the beautiful, youthful heroine and the older, wealthy wife of the hero, who must be disposed of before the hero and heroine can marry.Erörterung des One-Sex Models in Margaret Cavendishs "Assaulted and Pursued Chastity" und Einordnung dessen unter Betrachtung von Thomas Laqueurs One-Sex Theorie.
