The Bower of Bliss: An Improper Architecture takes sensuality as a theme, as well as an effect of the performance. Specifically, it concerns the gendered association of feeling with femininity and rationality or thought with masculinity. Linder gestures to the ramifications of this distinction in history and in language, and reclaims the persecuted feminine realm as a space that may mean differently. This overturning was a long time coming.
