How is this this meant to be a feminist victory - unless this is the whole point? That back in the 1800s, a woman had few rights and it is something as ridiculous as the most unlikely plot twists, that would point this out. Thing is, whereas I am all for the 'sisterhood,' I feel more at home discussing Marxist Theory/Post-Colonial Theory. However, I think I have thrashed out some of this via my trusty wipe board, under cut (look away if you don't want any spoilers)
Last year, my bugbear was Wuthering Heights, written by her sister. I struggled a bit with this, but I managed to crawl through and I even had a sneaking respect for Emily Bronte. Hopefully, I will have that re her sister.
Getting the bare bones down, but will fill in the rest tomorrow evening and Friday.
