    [synopsis] => In June 1889, Mrs Humphry Ward's open letter "An Appeal Against Female Suffrage" was published with over a hundred other female signatories against the extension of Parliamentary suffrage to women. Inflamed by this "most despicable piece of treachery ever perpetrated towards women by women", Corbett wrote and published New Amazonia.In her novel, Corbett envisions a successful suffragette movement eventually giving rise to a breed of highly evolved "Amazonians" who turn Ireland into a utopian society. The book's female narrator wakes up in the year 2472, much like Julian West awakens in the year 2000 in Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward. Corbett's heroine, however, is accompanied by a man of her own time, who has similarly awakened from a hashish dream to find himself in New Amazonia.The narrator reacts very positively to what she sees and learns; but her male companion reacts precisely oppositely and adjusts badly.

This was not my study, and I beheld nothing of the magazine which was the last thing I remembered seeing before I went to sleep. … I was recalled to the necessity of behaving more decorously by hearing someone near me exclaim in mystified accents, "By Jove!
