Synopsis

"Through analyses of The History of Miss Betsy Thoughtless, The Female Quixote, Evelina, Emma, Pride and Prejudice, and Jane Eyre, this genre study explores the ways in which the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British female Bildungsroman fuses female power and autonomy with a conservative reintegration with society."
