She is a wise young woman with the best of reading tastes. See also: "The Creation of Literature for the Young" (vol. 1); "Nineteenth-Century Fiction" (vol. 1). The truisms that girls do not read science fiction and that only girls read as children may have led to this dearth in a purely commercial sense. I think there are some real gems among “chick lit,” “misery lit,” mysteries, thrillers, sci fi, historical fiction — probably every identifiable genre in existence — but in each one, there are a lot more forgettable stories and characters than outstanding ones.

The Silent Sister

Before long, they are running for their lives. © MWms 1996-2015 / contact webmaster / Last modified: 24/Aug/2015/ Woman as gorgon, woman as temptress: the classical and biblical mythology which has dominated Western thinking defines women in a variety of patriarchally encoded roles Sealing the Deal. As the years pass and great events stalk the century, Bertie and Mabel forge identities shaped by what lies unspoken between them. And as the sisters go on to have daughters and granddaughters of their own, they discover that both love and betrayal are even more complicated than they seem. Gorgeously written, filled with extraordinary insight and emotional truth, Nancy Jensen's searing debut novel illuminates the power of family - and of family secrets Stuck in the Middle (Sister-to-Sister, Book 1).

Charles Dickens — who famously commented that he would have been quite glad to have grown up to marry Little Red Riding Hood — reinforced that position in two key pieces: first by telling in "Frauds on the Fairies" (1853) and then by showing in "The Magic Fishbone" (1868). The essay "Frauds on the Fairies" responded to the pedantic didacticism of fairy tale revisions of the age, most specifically to George Cruikshank's teetotaling rewritings in the Fairy Library (1853-64). "The Magic Fishbone" is a good example of the subversion of the fairy tale form into an early type of fantasy Finding Me. BATTLING ON Unlike Star Trek, where the roles of women gained more prominence in subse- quent series but not without reinforcing stereotypical gendered behavior and roles, Battlestar Galactica's reinvention was markedly different Angels All Over Town.

Marie's is one of the few female voices actively participating in and responding to the twelfth-century phenomenon of courtly love and chivalry; her works do not merely reflect their social context but actively criticize and engage problems of gender, love, social status, and social inequity. Although best known for her Lais and Fables, Marie also probably authored a third work, the Espurgatorie Seint Patriz — the Purgatory of Saint Patrick — and possibly a fourth, a life of Saint Audrey Cranford/Cousin Phillis (English Library).
