Scandal has long been associated with the collaborative partnership of Michael Field (the pseudonym/collaborative identity of Katharine Harris Bradley and Edith Emma Cooper): In the 1880s, the English literary world was reportedly scandalized to discover the recently lionized young debut writer, Michael Field, was actually an aunt and niece from suburban Bristol. Rediscovered in the 1990s as lesbian lovers and writers, Bradley and Cooper reemerged at the forefront of historiography on transgressive sexuality and the nature of female same-sex relationships; and current scholarship has extended this to argue that this relationship embraced more complex and fluidly desiring bodies. If LGBTQ+ sexuality is no longer a site of scandal, nevertheless under the surface, a modern discomfort with the specter of aunt–niece incest remains. In some sense, “Michael Field” often represents the bellwether for scholarship on Victorian women writers. Using Sara Ahmed’s theory of willfulness and digital humanities scholarship on The Diaries of Michael Field, this chapter draws on Bickle’s transcription of the 1912 diary, written predominantly by Edith Cooper while dying of cancer. This volume, which begins with Cooper’s discussion of her sin in the context of her Catholic conversion and includes a tumultuous penultimate meeting with art historian Bernhard Berenson—central to several of Cooper’s love triangles—grants a unique vision into Cooper’s sense of her own sexuality and how she viewed the morality of her most intimate relationships.
