Byronic Heroes In Nineteenth Century Women S Writing And Screen Adaptation

by Sarah Wootton, Byronic Heroes In Nineteenth Century Women S Writing And Screen Adaptation Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Byronic Heroes In Nineteenth Century Women S Writing And Screen Adaptation books, Byronic Heroes in Nineteenth-Century Women's Writing and Screen Adaptation charts a new chapter in the changing fortunes of a unique cultural phenomenon. This book examines the afterlives of the Byronic hero through the work of nineteenth-century women writers and screen adaptations of their fiction. It is a timely reassessment of Byron's enduring legacy during the nineteenth century and beyond, focusing on the charged and unstable literary dialogues between Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, George Eliot and a Romantic icon whose presence takes centre stage in recent screen adaptations of their most celebrated novels. The broad interdisciplinary lens employed in this book concentrates on the conflicted rewritings of Byron's poetry, his 'heroic' protagonists, and the cult of Byronism in nineteenth-century novels from Pride and Prejudice to Middlemarch, and extends outwards to the reappearance of Byronic heroes on film and in television series over the last two decades.

Romantic Women Writers And Arthurian Legend

by Katie Garner, Romantic Women Writers And Arthurian Legend Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Romantic Women Writers And Arthurian Legend books, This book reveals the breadth and depth of women’s engagements with Arthurian romance in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Tracing the variety of women’s responses to the medieval revival through Gothic literature, travel writing, scholarship, and decorative gift books, it argues that differences in the kinds of Arthurian materials read by and prepared for women produced a distinct female tradition in Arthurian writing. Examining the Arthurian interests of the best-selling female poets of the day, Felicia Hemans and Letitia Elizabeth Landon, and uncovering those of many of their contemporaries, the Arthurian myth in the Romantic period is a vibrant location for debates about the function of romance, the role of the imagination, and women’s place in literary history.

Eighteenth Century Women Writers And The Gentleman S Liberation Movement

by Dr Megan A Woodworth, Eighteenth Century Women Writers And The Gentleman S Liberation Movement Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Eighteenth Century Women Writers And The Gentleman S Liberation Movement books, In the late eighteenth-century English novel, the question of feminism has usually been explored with respect to how women writers treat their heroines and how they engage with contemporary political debates, particularly those relating to the French Revolution. Megan Woodworth argues that women writers' ideas about their own liberty are also present in their treatment of male characters. In positing a 'Gentleman's Liberation Movement,' she suggests that Frances Burney, Charlotte Smith, Jane West, Maria Edgeworth, and Jane Austen all used their creative powers to liberate men from the very institutions and ideas about power, society, and gender that promote the subjection of women. Their writing juxtaposes the role of women in the private spheres with men's engagement in political structures and successive wars for independence (the American Revolution, the French Revolution, and the Napoleonic Wars). The failures associated with fighting these wars and the ideological debates surrounding them made plain, at least to these women writers, that in denying the universality of these natural freedoms, their liberating effects would be severely compromised. Thus, to win the same rights for which men fought, women writers sought to remake men as individuals freed from the tyranny of their patriarchal inheritance.

Women Writing And The Industrial Revolution

by Susan Zlotnick, Women Writing And The Industrial Revolution Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Women Writing And The Industrial Revolution books, The industrial revolution in nineteenth-century England disrupted traditional ways of life. Condemning these transformations, the male writers who explored the brave new world of Victorian industrialism looked longingly to an idealized past. However, British women writers were not so pessimistic and some even foresaw the prospect of real improvement. As Susan Zlotnick argues in Women, Writing, and the Industrial Revolution, novelists Elizabeth Gaskell, Charlotte Brontë, Frances Trollope, and Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna were more willing to embrace industrialism than their male counterparts. While these women's responses to early industrialism differed widely, they imagined the industrial revolution and the modernity it heralded in ways unique to their gender. Zlotnick extends her analysis of the literature of the industrial revolution to the poetry and prose produced by working-class men and women. She examines the works of Chartist poets, dialect writers, and two "factory girl" poets who wrote about their experiences in the mills.

Heroes And Housewives

by Adeline Johns-Putra, Heroes And Housewives Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Heroes And Housewives books, In the Romantic age, women poets wrote epics to pay tribute to female domesticity, instead of solely to praise masculine and public achievement. These poets were empowered, not repressed, by the idea of separate spheres. They celebrated the domestic woman as a figure of authority. They assumed this authority themselves and drew on it in order to write epic poetry. This book examines a variety of women's epics, from war epics to biblical narratives, from heroic poems to mock epics. It also includes an analysis of the female Gothic in verse, reading it as an alternative epic of fall and salvation for the domestic woman.
