the Image Breakers

Cheers.  I am reading an amazing novel called the "Image
Breakers" by Gertrude Dix written in 1900.  A popular novel,
Dix deals with two women who are both socialists, who are
attracted to each other (unspoken) and yet are also torn by
hetero relationships with radical men.  Dix describes the
dilemma between love (and its capitalist bourgeois narrative)
and the Party or the Commune or as a woman, one's art.

But it seems that no one knows a stitch about Gertrude Dix--not
anything.  So has anyone out there taught this novel, read it
or know anything about Dix?  And if anyone is teaching a 19th
cent. class, or turn of the century--check it out.
