  1. Jane Austen and the Feminist Influence on 19th Century Fiction Presented By: Mary Claire Leonard

  2. Jane Austen (1775-1817) “It is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man always imagines a woman to be ready for anybody who asks her.”

  3. “Romantic” Authors Victor Hugo (1802-1885) “I have two luxuries to brood over in my walks, your loveliness and the hour of my death. O that I could have possession of them both in the same minute.”  -John Keats John Keats (1795-1821) Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849)

  4. Realities of the 19th Century Woman

  5. 19th Century Novels

  6. Reoccurring Themes and Ideas • Domestic Heroine: Woman going through temptations and troubles as she attempts to find emotional and economic order in the middle class. • Men in the presence of women (instead of vice versa) • Marriage for actual liking of one another - couples are on same intellectual plane - moving up in classes=influence for women - symbol of maturity, not victory of man • Women in all classes of society • Education for women=personal empowerment • Subtle parallels between women and nature -Eco-feminist movement
