With no real avenues to a proper education, travel, or influence outside of their often protective and limited family circle, these women were not given the opportunities to ever think for themselves or develop a sense of true self. As such, many must have suffered dull, unfruitful, deeply unsatisfying lives that were spent pouring out tea in stuffy, cluttered parlours and caring for their rapidly ageing parents. Harriett Frean was one of these women, and her sheer helplessness and passivity both infuriated me and left me feeling desperately sorry for the generations of women like her who never had the chance to truly live. This short book charts the life of Harriett Frean, from birth to death. Her mother and father are both very moral, good, upright people who consider themselves liberal intellectuals. They are a close, tight knit family and Harriett feels little need for other people, though she does have several close girl friends as she grows up and goes to school. Her mother instils in her a belief that self sacrifice for the good of others and behaving beautifully in all respects are the most important and meaningful things in life.
Zegger might well have subtitled her book as Margaret Ganz subtitled her study of Elizabeth Gaskell, The Artist in Conflict, for what clearly emerges in this interesting treatment of May Sinclair and her novels is Sinclair's difficulty in reconciling satisfactorily divergent interests and tendencies: her fascination with psychoanalysis on the one hand and her philosophical idealism on the other; her hostility toward the Victorian ideal of the family and woman's place in it combined with nonmilitant feminism and her apparent endorsement, frequently, of self-sacrifice as a resolution for some of the conflicts her heroines endure; her fairly consistent adherence to early twentieth-century realism early in her career, sporadically later on, as opposed to her use of stream-of-consciousness and presentation of the inner life of her characters in her greatest novels; and others. Zegger characterizes Theophilus E. Boll's earlier study, Miss May Sinclair: Novelist In Zegger's study, the early idealistic and realistic novels are described briefly in chapters following a short "life," and Zegger makes straight for what she considers most worthy of close examination - The Three Sisters , Mary Olivier , and The Life and Death of Harriett Frean , novels Zegger characterizes as "psychological. In all, I think the proportions are right. Theme and character are Zegger's preoccupation, and style gets short shrift. On the other hand, she judges Mary Olivier and The Three Sisters "richer" because "no subsidiary characters enlarge and deepen" Harriett Frean, Harriett's character does not develop or change, and she "retains no mystery and no opacity.
Women of Faith in Victorian Culture pp Cite as. However the central characters of the three novels I wish to discuss are fictional representations of products of a Victorian upbringing, an upbringing shared by Sinclair herself. I intend to argue that two of these characters challenge and rewrite the Victorian ideal of womanhood, as exemplified by the Angel in the House. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.
