The Victorian Woman Question in Contemporary Feminist Fiction

release date: Sep 03, 2005
The Victorian Woman Question in Contemporary Feminist Fiction
Jeannette King explores the representation of Victorian womanhood in the work of some of today's most important female novelists, including A.S. Byatt, Sarah Waters, Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter and Toni Morrison. By analyzing these novels in the context of the scientific, religious and literary discourses that shaped Victorian ideas about gender, it contributes to an important interdisciplinary debate. While showing the power of these discourses to shape women's roles, the novels also suggest how individual women might challenge that power through their own lives.

Tragedy in the Victorian Novel

Tragedy in the Victorian Novel
How does one dominant literary genre fall into decline, to be superseded by another? The classic instance is the rise of the novel in the nineteenth century, and how it came to embody the tragic vision of life which had previously been the domain of drama. Dr King focuses on three novelists, George Eliot. Thomas Hardy and Henry James. All three, while trying to offer a realistic picture of life in prose narrative, wrote with the concept of tragedy clearly in mind. The concern was widespread, and Victorian literary critics found themselves discussing the problem of how one might reconcile concepts as dissimilar as tragedy and realism. Their criticism provides Dr King with her starting point. Dr King examines the work of her three authors in relation to the large concepts of traditional tragic thought, and also examines how the form of specific novels was affected by their differing ideas of tragedy.
