English literature A-levelWatch
For my english lit coursework, I wanted to find a 2 books that highlight the role of women whether it's the oppression they face or the freedom. I was thinking A dolls house but I'm struggling to find a book that I can compare it to. I'm open to any suggestions and would appreciate some help. Thank you
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath or The Yellow Wallpaper by... I can’t quite remember who. Anything Jane Austen is good when talking about women, especially if you want to talk about the alienation of women from society as keeping in domestic sphere’s or the way marriage can mean mobility for women. Erm... Margaret Atwood’s the Handmaid’s Tale is like the pre-set text when thinking feminism. The Crucible or the Scarlet Letter may be good if your looking for plays that take women into consideration. The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy or Sylvia Plath’s poetry if your looking for poems, she has some beautiful poems about domestic life and motherhood. Oranges Aren’t Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson (I think that’s her name) and The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter if you’re looking for more obscure references. Hope that helps 👍🏾.
