Patriarchy and female subordination in selected works by Jane Austen
2002 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

An overview of the theme of patriarchy / female subordination in selected works by Jane Austen. The male characters own power and authority while the female characters struggle for independence in Austen's rather local and limited world. The society that Austen portrays in her novels is an arranged and formal one where the social hierarchy depends on factors such as, for example, class, gender and behaviour. The economic, as well as, the marital situation restricted women and favoured men. In Austen's society women were rarely found at the top of the pyramid like social structure. Even if a woman possessed the qualities necessary for such a position as well as belonging to the finest of families with the largest of fortunes, she would not gain the same position as a man of the same standards.
