British And American School Stories 1910 1960

by Nancy G. Rosoff, British And American School Stories 1910 1960 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download British And American School Stories 1910 1960 books, This book examines school and college fiction for girls in Britain and the United States, written in the first half of the twentieth century, to explore the formation and ideologies of feminine identity. Nancy G. Rosoff and Stephanie Spencer develop a transnational framework that recognises how both constructed and essential femininities transcend national boundaries. The book discusses the significance and performance of female friendship across time and place, which is central to the development of the genre, and how it functioned as an important means of informal education. Stories by Jessie Graham Flower, Pauline Lester, Alice Ross Colver, Elinor Brent-Dyer, and Dorita Fairlie Bruce are set within their historical context and then used to explore aspects of sociability, authority, responsibility, domesticity, and possibility. The distinctiveness of this book stems from the historical analysis of these sources, which have so far primarily been treated by literary scholars within their national context.

Download Eine Geschichte Von Land Und Meer books, North Carolina um 1800: Helen wächst als Tochter eines Plantagenbesitzers behütet auf, doch ihre Mutter starb bei ihrer Geburt, der Vater ist zerfressen von Schuldgefühlen. Helen ist stark und unabhängig, bringt den Sklaven auf der Plantage das Alphabet bei und kümmert sich mehr und mehr um die väterlichen Geschäfte. Von Heirat hält sie nichts, sämtliche Verkupplungsversuche ihres Vaters schlagen fehl. Aber dann taucht John auf, ein einfacher Soldat ohne Herkunft, und noch ehe Helen weiß, wie ihr geschieht, entbrennt sie in Liebe zu ihm. Der Vater verweist ihn des Hauses, und so bleibt den beiden nur das Meer als Ort für ihre Liebe, sie heuern auf einem Schiff an und befahren ein ganzes Jahr den Ozean – doch als Helen ein Kind erwartet, müssen sie zurück an Land und sich der Realität stellen ... Katy Simpson Smith hat einen gewaltigen Roman geschrieben über Hingabe und Verlust, Leben und Tod, über die bedingungslose Liebe einer Frau zu einem Mann und eines Vaters zu seiner Tochter.
