Summary
"Jane Eyre's, Nelly Dean's, Esther Summerson's, Marian Halcombe's, and Molly Bloom's narratives have been noted for their artlessness, but the Female Narrator in the British Novel shows how they are actually carefully constructed to deceive. How a woman tells her story is crucial to our understanding of its content, for a novel's mode of narration frequently undermines its ostensible plot. Analyzing relationships between the sexes in terms of battles for narrative authority, Sternlieb argues for a rethinking of the history of the marriage plot."--Jacket
