Notes

Abstract:
Because tobacco was heavily connected with ideas about masculinity in the nineteenth century, texts from this period rarely reflect a smoking woman. Yet, I have found texts from mid-century which each include a woman who is heavily tied to tobacco. These three texts?Prosper Merimee?s Carmen, Ouida?s Under Two Flags and Cuban tobacco lithographs?are significant because they are not only markedly different from the representations of the New Woman later in the century, but these texts reveal complex nineteenth century anxieties about masculinity/consumption. In each text, by consuming (purchasing and/or killing) these women, as with consuming masculine tobacco, the male protagonist consumes the exotic/sexual and thereby (re)imagines or consolidates his own white imperial masculinity, which was in question before this woman?s appearance. The fact that these texts originate from several countries reveals that these anxieties were widespread and also that these texts are related to each other in a way which correlates with (and reflects) the actual trade route of tobacco at the time.
