In response to the Shakey Bill stuff.

When I saw the word "odious", the writer
who actually came to mind, and the period of literature,

was 20th-century Englishwoman Georgette Heyer
with her revival of Regency novels.
In which the protagonists -- including some strong-willed women --
go around saying that something is "all a hum",
or something else is "the outside of enough,"

and some woman will invariably express her indignation with:
"Odious,
odious man!"

Which usually means that she is going to fall into romance with said man.
