Woman's Journey Toward Self and Its Literary Exploration


Barbara Keller

This dissertation examines a number of mainly twentieth-century novels written by women whose works reflect the problem of woman's identity and its fictional representation. It analyses the confrontation of the authors and their protagonists respectively with the old values imposed upon them, their struggle to free themselves, and their search for appropriate ways of expressing their insights into new concepts of female identity.
