📒Daughters Of The House ✍ Alison Milbank
✏Daughters of the House Book Summary : Daughters of the House radically revises critical assumptions about the Victorian woman's relation to the house, through new readings of novels by Wilkie Collins, Dickens, Charlotte Bronte and Sheridan Le Fanu. Tracing their various transformations of eighteenth-century Gothic, the book discovers a revision of gender power relations in works such as Bleak House, in which Dickens embraces a program of the redemption of public action by women. Le Fanu and Bronte are shown to merge the Gothic with an apocalyptic critique of society, involving a paradoxically simultaneous expansion of and yet breaking out from private domestic space. In Le Fanu's version woman becomes angel beyond the confines of a debased patriarchal order. It is argued that this "female" Gothic thematic includes a genuine emancipatory dimension whereas, against most current feminist readings, this is denied to Wilkie Collins's deployment of the "sensation heroine". His fiction is controversially read in terms of the release of women into the market as commodities, in order for them to be returned to a sexualized domestic enclosure. The book ends by aligning the Gothic heroine's project to contemporary debates in French feminism, and in particular to the work of Luce Irigaray.

📒A House Full Of Daughters ✍ Juliet Nicolson
✏A House Full of Daughters Book Summary : A family memoir that traces the myths, legends, and secrets of seven generations of remarkable women All families have their myths and legends. For many years Juliet Nicolson accepted hers--the dangerous beauty of her flamenco dancing great-great-grandmother Pepita, the flirty manipulation of her great-grandmother Victoria, the infamous eccentricity of her grandmother Vita Sackville-West, her mother’s Tory-conventional background. But then Juliet, a distinguished historian, started to question. As she did so, she sifted fact from fiction, uncovering details and secrets long held just out of sight. A House Full of Daughters takes us through seven generations of women. In the nineteenth-century slums of Malaga, the salons of fin-de-siecle Washington D.C., an English boarding school during the Second World War, Chelsea in the 1960s, the knife-edge that was New York City in the 1980s, these women emerge for Juliet as people in their own right, but also as part of who she is and where she has come from. A House Full of Daughters is one woman’s investigation into the nature of family, memory, and the past. As Juliet finds uncomfortable patterns reflected in these distant and more recent versions of herself, she realizes her challenge is to embrace the good and reject the hazards that have trapped past generations.
📒Dickens And The Daughter Of The House ✍ Hilary M. Schor
✏Dickens and the Daughter of the House Book Summary : Feminist criticism has not been kind to Charles Dickens. The characters George Orwell referred to as 'legless angels' - Little Nell, Agnes Wickfield, Esther Summerson and others - have been conjured as evidence of Dickens' inability to create 'real' women. Critics wishing to rescue him have turned to the dark, angry women - Nancy, Lady Dedlock, Miss Wade - who disrupt the calm surface of some of Dickens' novels. In this book Hilary M. Schor argues that the role of the good daughter is interwoven with that of her angry double in Dickens' fiction, and is the centre of narrative authority in the Dickens' novel. As the good daughters must leave their father's house and enter the world of the marketplace, they transform and rewrite the stories they are empowered to tell. The daughter's uncertain legal status and her power of narrative gave Dickens a way of reading and writing his own culture differently.
