Book excerpt: Agnes Grey was one of a trio of novels that defined the “governess novel” in 1847 and 1848. Alongside Jane Eyre and Vanity Fair, Agnes Grey may be the most radical of the three. Agnes Grey is the younger daughter of a clergyman and his wife of modest means, cherished but also infantilized. When her father’s mercantile investment goes disastrously wrong, Agnes decides to contribute to the family’s financial rebuilding by working as a governess, despite her mother’s and sister’s misgivings about her fitness for such work. Her first position is indeed trying, as the parents and children are uncouth and even cruel. Her second position is slightly more congenial, but she is still manipulated and ignored. Yet Agnes perseveres and begins to build relationships outside the family, most importantly with a kind, empathetic young curate. As life brings more trials to Agnes and her family, we watch her persist on her steady path of hope and determination. This Broadview Edition provides extensive historical documents on the novel’s reception, the role of the governess in Victorian England, and contemporary debates about thetreatment of non-human animals.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Writing from positions of cultural exclusion, women have faced constraints not only upon the "content" of fiction but upon the act of narration itself. Narrative voice thus becomes a matter not simply of technique but of social authority: how to speak publicly, to whom, and in whose name. Susan Sniader Lanser here explores patterns of narration in a wide range of novels by women of England, France, and the United States from the 1740s to the present. Drawing upon narratological and feminist theory, Lanser sheds new light on the history of "voice" as a narrative strategy and as a means of attaining social power.

Book excerpt: Elevée au sein d'une famille unie mais pauvre - qui n'est pas sans rappeler la fratrie Brontë -, Agnès Grey, 18 ans, fille d'un pasteur d'un village du nord de l'Angleterre, décide de tenter sa chance dans le monde en se faisant gouvernante. Trop discrète et inexpérimentée, elle est vite confrontée à la dure réalité dès son arrivée chez la famille Bloomfield. Désarmée face à l'indiscipline des enfants gâtés dont elle a la garde, et à l'indifférence cruelle des adultes, elle est renvoyée au bout de quelques mois. Sans désemparer, et dans l'obligation de subvenir à ses besoins, elle trouve alors un emploi chez les Murray. Les jours passent, avec leur lot de monotonie et de difficultés, jusqu'à l'arrivée du nouveau pasteur, Mr Weston... Chronique réaliste à la première personne, non dénuée de satire, Agnes Grey est largement inspiré de l'expérience de gouvernante d'Anne Brontë dans l'Angleterre provinciale de son siècle, tout comme Jane Eyre de sa soeur Charlotte.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Bible teems with nonhuman life, from its opening pages with God's creation of animals on the same day and out of the same earth as humans to its closing apocalyptic scenes of horses riding out of the sky. Animals are Adam's companions, Noah's shipmates, and Elijah's saviors. They are at the center of ancient Israel's religious life as sacrifices and yet, as Job discovers, beyond human dominion. It is an animal that saves Balaam from certain death by an angel's hand, and an animal that carries Jesus into Jerusalem. The Creator declares all of them good at the beginning, and since the Apostle Paul writes of God's eternal purposes for all things on earth, they are somehow part of a hoped-for eschatological restoration. So why are animals so often ignored in Christian moral discourse? In its theological thinking and faith-motivated praxis, human-centeredness typically results in the complete erasure of the nonhuman. This book argues that this exclusion of animals is problematic for those who see the Bible as authoritative for the religious life. Instead, biblical literature bears witness to a more inclusive understanding of moral duty and faith-motivated largesse that extends also to Eden's other residents.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since the late twentieth century, there has been a strategic campaign to recover the impact of Victorian women writers in the field of English literature. However, with the increased understanding of the importance of interdisciplinarity in the twenty-first century, there is a need to extend this campaign beyond literary studies in order to recognise the role of women writers across the nineteenth century, a time that was intrinsically interdisciplinary in approach to scholarly writing and public intellectual engagement.
Download or read book The Brontes written by Patricia Ingham and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-06-11 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The novels of Charlotte and Emily Bronte have become canonical texts for the application of twentieth century literary and cultural theory. Along with the work of their sister, Anne, their texts are regarded as a sources of diversity in themselves, full of conflictual material which different schools of criticism have analysed and interpreted. This book shows how the Brontes writings engage with the major issues which dominate twentieth century theoretical work. The essays are grouped under broad schools of theory- biographical; feminist; marxist; psychoanalytical and postcolonial.
