History & Politics

Representation of women in English literature, as a subject, has a multiple shade because such a topic involves not only the politics of women empowerment and subjugation but also the politics of literary representation itself. Beside this, the topic has an astonishingly wide range considering the wide spectrum of English literature. The present volume engages a number of renowned and aspiring scholars to explore the various modes of representation of women in English .literature, with special emphasis on the key literary figures and texts such as Jane Austen and Virginia Woolf. Never pretending to be exhaustive and conclusive, the book claims to posit itself as a suitable introduction to this subject and will be happy to address the needs of students, teachers and scholars in furthering their scholarly pursuit.
