Schroeder and Holt demonstrate the significance of this relatively unexamined authors works for literary studies today by investigating the ideological connections between Victorian, modern, and postmodern cultures inherent in Ouidas works, while revealing Ouidas oeuvre as a complex reflection of Victorian cultural paradoxes.

Situating Ouida within the context of central nineteenth-century cultural debates such as the New Woman controversy, the Aesthetes discourse in alternative male sexualities, and the aesthetic controversy over popular sensation fiction, Schroeder and Holt likewise examine how Ouidas concerns anticipate such modern/postmodern issues as the conflict between popular and high culture and the development of a consumerist society based on commodity spectacle.
