Listening to the “Roar Which Lies on the Other Side of Silence”
by Carita Keim
Narration, Subjectivity, and Selfhood in Villette and Middlemarch. Examining the works of two female authors of the 19th century, Carita discusses how these authors revolutionized narration and the coming-of-age novel to carve out space for a new sort of modern individual. Carita also discusses the role of desire and subjectivity as a key motivation in Villette and Middlemarch.
