The two books I’m studing are The Bloody Chambers and The Bell Jar. I’m familiar with the books and I’ve began analysing them. I was hoping someone could give me insight on feminism in literature and possibly give any links to the books I’m studying. Thanks a lot in advance.

Haven't read those particular books but I have done AQA coursework for Feminism and Post Colonialism.

For Feminist criticisms, it may be a good idea to think about the following things:

- Does the author identify as a woman?
- How many female characters are present and if there are any, are they marginal?
- Use of voices and narrative perspectives
- In terms of constructs, what constraint does each female character fit: femme fatale or angel of the house - think about the original idea of women as femme fatales being rooted in the beginning of history (Eve and the forbidden fruit)
- Are women empowered as the narrative progresses - how (is it through a male character)
