Notable Female Characters of Great Literature
Gary F. Taylor "GFT"
Inside Daisy Clover (Midnight Classics)
"One of the most overlooked heroines of 20th Century fiction, Daisy Clover is sharp, sardonic, and eternally memorable."
To Kill a Mockingbird
"Scout Finch: easily one of the least pretentious narrators ever created for fiction."
Pride and Prejudice (Bantam Classics)
"Elizabeth Bennett, her various sisters, and her eternally befuddled mother are brilliant creations."
Madame Bovary (Bantam Classics)
"Flaubert's MADAME BOVARY is perhaps the single finest novel ever written--and the character is a memorable study in human failings."
The Great Gatsby
"Mysteriously shallow and superficially deep, Daisy Buchannan is the embodiment of the failure of the American dream."
Anna Karenina (Modern Library Classics)
"Tolstoi's great heroine eschews the values of the society in which she moves--and pays the ultimate price for her transgressions."
The Awakening and Selected Stories of Kate Chopin (Signet Classics)
"The character Edna Pontellier was so ahead of her time that the publication of THE AWAKENING virtually ended author Kate Chopin's career."
Wuthering Heights (Bantam Classics)
"The wilful, class-concious Cathy set a new standard--and cast a new type--for romantic heroines."
Gone with the Wind
"Whatever its status as literature, GONE WITH THE WIND certainly gives us one of the most memorable females of 20th Century literature: Scarlett O'Hara"
Agnes Grey (Oxford World's Classics)
"Though not so famous as her sisters, Anne Bronte paints a painfully realistic portrait of a Victorian governess in this semi-autobiographical novel."
Vanity Fair (Penguin Classics)
"William Thackery's creation of Becky Sharp shocked an entire generation of readers."
Of Human Bondage (Bantam Classics)
"Maugham's slatternly, vicious, and sexy Mildred did the same for a later generation."
The Postman Always Rings Twice
"The sin-blackened Cora is one of the most powerful potraits of the entire noir literature movement."
Green Mansions (Oxford World's Classics)
"Rima, "the bird girl," is a miracle of lush, tropical, and high Victorian romance."
Jane Eyre (Signet Classics)
"Charotte Bronte virtually created the gothic romance with her tale of a drab governess who finds herself in love with her employer in a mysterious mansion."
A Murder is Announced (Miss Marple Mysteries)
"Agatha Christie's elderly, dithery Jane Marple is a classic of her kind."
Dracula (Signet Classics)
"Mina and Lucy are among the most memorable victims of the legendary Count in Stoker's memorable horror novel."
The Turn of the Screw (Dover Thrift Editions)
"Henry James' unnamed governess is at storm center of this psychological horror."
The Haunting of Hill House
"Speaking of psychological horror, Elenor Vance sits at the apex of the movement in this modern masterpiece."
We Have Always Lived in the Castle
"As does Connie and Merricat in this lesser known but no less memorable Jackson shocker."
"The nameless wife, the dangerous Mrs. Danvers, and the mysteriously dead Rebecca create a memorable triangle."
Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade
"Patrick Dennis' legendary Auntie Mame is a comedy classic."
The Maltese Falcon
"The perfidious Brigid O'Shaughnessy is one of two memorable Hammett female creations."
The Thin Man
"The sharp-witted and hard drinking Nora Charles is the other."
La Cousine Bette (Ldp Classiques) (French Edition)
"And Balzac's sea-salt-bitter old maid living on the kindess of relatives is memorable study of unwarrented revenge."
