Brief analysis of Thomas Hardys female characters; Tess and Sue from a feminist perspective
While preparing my thesis, Ive met some problems in some parts. In my thesis, I examine Hardys two novels,Tess of the Durbervilles and Jude the Obscure from a feminist perspective. I would like you to help me complete the parts below.
1. A brief analysis of Tess as A new woman”. (please give some examples from the book to show how Hardy portrays Tess as a modern woman.) Does she really represent the new woman in the Victorian Age? Does she reflect Hardys own feelings about the society? Does Hardy mention Tesss inner feelings in the book?
2. Double standard of morality and Tess.(please give some supporting examples from the book)
3. A brief analysis of Sue as A new womanand her experiment of free union instead of marriage.(please give some examples to show in what ways she is a good example of The new womanin the Victorian Age)
4. Double standard of morality and Sue.(please give some supporting examples from the book)
