This original edition provides bold new insights into Nightingale's beliefs and a new picture of the relationship between feminism and religion. "Suggestions for Thought to the Searchers after Truth Among the Artisans of England" (1860), which contains the novel "Cassandra," is a central text in 19th-century history of feminist thought and is published here for the first time. Nightingale argues that work was the means by which every individual sought self-fulfillment and served God. She wrote influentially about the group most Victorians declared to be above work: unmarried, middle-class women.
