Charlotte Bronte: A Thematic Study Of Her Novels
This book is an exploration of the thematic contents of Charlotte Bronte?s fiction, analysing her major novels on an Integrated plane, and simultaneously comparing them with major works of other contemporary leading novelists living or dead. As such this study records her stand of unconventionally and novelty. The First chapter is an investigation into the seedy backgrounds to their themes of alienation predicament, and love and marriage, the Second and the Third a demonstration of the cruelty of alienation and the pinch of predicament in the lonely life of Charlotte?s heroines. But the Fourth chapter discovers that the primary and predominant concern of her fiction is love and marriage, and so it solemnizes the triumph of the passionate, revolutionary woman in love who seems to be agreeing with Donne ?To make them (Women), as God made, wives, is godly and manly too?. Here again this study exhibits how the novelist asserts the independence and the individuality of women on equal footing with man. Thus Charlotte Bronet?s crusade through the realism of The Professor and Shirley and the romanticism of Jane Eyre and Villette envisages and world where women should not b victims, if not always victorious. The conclusion sums up her vision of human life, giving due allowance to destiny and hostel forces. Dr. Singh?s study will serve as a very illuminating and stimulating analysis of Charlotte Bronte?s novels leading to the promotion of healthy attitude towards women and an understanding of their principal problem.
