The novel Jane Eyre is an autobiographical account including elements of a fairy tale, gothic mystery and is Bildungsroman, as it follows the characters internal development. This essay will focus on Jane’s controversial standing in her autobiography, where she searches to be independent and of a higher social standing. The way in which Charlotte Bronte imposes the style of writing in describing scenes and passages containing letters sets the content of the novel and leads to the climax of the text and inevitably the ending of the novel. From the opening paragraph which creates the scene for the narrators essential traits, to the letters perceived throughout, provide the context for the plot. Jane Eyre is an autobiography in which she tells of her journey through life, imposing her need of achieving independence and social stature to be at last happy and fulfilled.
She praises Rhys for not sacrificing Antoinette, a woman from the colonies as in insane animal. Spivak reads Bronte’s novel as an allegory of the general epistemic violence of imperialism, the construction of the social mission of the colonizer (Gayatri 251). Critics like Gita Ranjan and Radhika Mohanram who opine that Rhys by penning down the prequel, directs “future readers to envisage Victorian Britain as dependent upon her colonies, just as Bronte’s Jane depends upon a colonial inheritance” (49). So not just in the connection of personal level of Antoinette’s stories, Rhys’ novel also goes for the historical exchanges between two nations, namely England and Jamaica, one being colonizer and the other being the colonized respectively.

Discuss the respective artistic attributes of the Print and Film versions of Austen’s Sense and Sensibility endorsing your partiality in a comprehensive manner. Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility and its Adaptation by Emma Thompson The intricate and complex nature of human feelings always mesmerizes artists. Hence, they tend to explore them through their works of art. Jane Austen (1775-1817) was one of the most revered female authors in the English literary arena who explored both human nature and the society in which humans dwell in and according to Prof. Eisha Hewabowela “Sense and Sensibility (1811) is an extensively memorable narrative about two very different siblings, namely, Elinor, the calm Dashwood daughter full of prudence and good sense, and her younger sister, the impulsive, passionate and pretty Marianne who is very close to the older sister” (Hewabowela 1). Like Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen’s novels are comedies of manners that depict the self-contained world of provincial ladies and gentlemen and they often revolve around the delicate business of providing husbands for daughters who are at the marriageable age.
Introduction to Sense and Sensibility Sense and Sensibility is a novel as well as the first published work of Jane Austen when it appeared in 1811 under the pseudonym "A Lady". A work of romantic fiction, better known as a comedy of manners, Sense and Sensibility chronicles two sisters' experiences through romance, misunderstandings and heartbreak. Elinor Dashwood with her good sense and well-developed sense of justice forms a foil to her romantic, headstrong sister Marianne. Economics and social standing also play important parts in one of Austen's most endearing stories. Jane Austen wrote the first draft of the novel in the form of a novel-in-letters (epistolary form) sometime around 1795 when she was about 19 years old, and gave it the title Elinor and Marianne.
Feminist Literary Criticism Feminist literary criticism, according to Michael Delahoyde, “critiques patriarchal language and literature by exposing how these reflect masculinity ideology” (Delahoyde). It was in the late 1970s, when feminist criticism became a strong literary criticism in the Western studies (Murfin). The aim of this paper is to analyse some of the main points between two feminist criticisms: the French criticism and the Anglo-American criticism. French feminists were highly influenced by Simone de Beauvoir. In her book entitled The Second Sex (1949), de Beauvoir, influenced by Sartre’s existencialism, states that ‘one is not born a woman; one becomes one’ (qtd in Moi, p. 92).
Literary Brilliance Invigorated By Theatrical Glamour The riveting, timeless, classical, and coming of age tale orchestrated by Charlotte Brontë is immaculately composed, modernized, and brought to life by Cary Fukunaga, endeavoring to portray the narration of an orphan exposed to the rigors of a cold, scornful, forsaken, loveless, dreary, desolate, and arbitrarily governed past. Taking place in the patriarchal Victorian society, the protagonist known as Jane Eyre sought refuge and embarks on the pursuit of acquiring her true autonomy, independence, and seeking a sense of belonging against conspicuously insurmountable odds, in this “rags to riches” masterpiece. Encompassed in this cinematographically astonishment is the juxtaposition of the essence and prowess behind a gripping and at some instances heart stopping romanticism between the plain-featured, reserved, yet talented, empathetic, hard-working, honest, and passionate archetype of Jane, matched with the wealthy, deceitful, self-centered, passionate, tormented, driven, charismatic, and brooding Mr. Rochester. Differing in appearance to society, and on the surface incompatible, the two seemingly star-crossed lovers mirror one another in terms of a passionate interior, enclosed in the mind and soul. Will Jane Eyre become the heir to more than skills at studying, drawing, and teaching?
• Feminist critics are especially interested in issues concerning women’s culture. Also, they insist on the autobiographical side of the story, especially on the centrality of the act of giving birth. • An intertextual reading of the novel reveals echoes of several romantic poems, of various authors. It is a well-established notion that references to other texts add to the meaning of the work in question. In other words, if you consider ‘The Rime’ as a hypotext (= underlying text) to Frankenstein, your understanding of the novel may be enriched thanks to suggestion from Coleridge’s
Chaucer on Feminism That One Gal Brit Lit Professor Brainy Ack 2012 Chaucer on Feminism The Wife of Bath’s Tale and its prologue, first published in 1387, are part of The Canterbury Tales and are arguably Geoffrey Chaucer’s most famous work. The tale’s fame stems as much from its entertaining romantic narrative as it does from the fact that it is narrated by a woman and primarily affected by the needs and desires of women. In addition to its feminine voice, Chaucer’s bawdy narrator, Alisoun, discusses various taboo subjects of her time, from her own sexual needs and experiences to the rape of a maiden by a knight, all while making a clever argument for women’s desire to have sovereignty over men. The Wife of Bath’s Prologue and Tale is Chaucer’s version of feminist literature and the wife’s powerfully independent and distinctly female voice represents the unshackling of women in a time when women were bound by institutional misogyny. Alisoun uses scripture, certainly the most influential and anti-feminist literature of the Middle Ages, to justify her own feminist philosophy; which is evidence of Chaucer making a medieval attempt at feminist writing.
Both of these writers might seem like they had different ideas, but they both elaborated on new methods that makes one’s work modernistic, making the future bright for their descendants and followers. When reading “Modern Fiction,” I noticed that Woolf explains her way of defining ways to create a good fiction modernistically while she points out what makes a bad fictional writing as well.
