Analysis of the character of the maiden in The Wood Beyond the World. Notes that as a woman both chaste and possessed of wizardly powers—like her decidedly unchaste counterpart, the Mistress—she engenders a degree of tension and uncertainty until the end of the novel. Sees Morris’s attitudes toward sex and society in terms of his Victorian background.
