Subverted Gender Roles in “North and South” and “Shirley?”
“To what extent are traditional gender roles subverted in E. Gaskell’s North and South and C. Bronte’s Shirley?”
The essay should be well structured. Please use well-chosen quotations (as well as references to specific passages) from both books to support your argument. Also, don’t forget that gender issues may be impacted by other contemporary issues represented in the books, including (among others) economic/industrial changes.
In regards to the structure,
The essay should have a clear introduction briefly introducing the two books that will be the core of the essay, the female characters (two females in Shirley and one in North and South), the question at stake leading to the development paragraphs of the essay.
The question “To what extent are traditional gender roles subverted in E. Gaskell’s North and South and C. Bronte’s Shirley?” should be then introduced in response to the introduction. You should also define what “subverted” means to you; what does it mean? is it the right word? what other words would you use? what does it imply? Also, the question should then be reformulated in your own words (with the implied definition of “subverted” you have and your interpretation of the question.)
The body paragraphs should then respond to the question with specific quotations and passages in the book, to actually show that you have read the book. Also, refer to Harriet Martineau if you are able to draw parallels. Arguments and quotations should be of high analysis. Don’t forget to draw parallels between the two characters in the two books, how there are two females in Shirley, their personalities and how that affects their behaviour and to what extent they are “subverted.”
Clear conclusion wrapping up the essay and ending with an opening question or an interesting thought.
