When Miss Milner announces her passion for her guardian, a Catholic priest, she breaks through the double barrier of his religious vocation and her society's standards of proper womanly behaviour. Her love is legitimized when Dorriforth is released from his vows, but her own unorthodox nature cannot be contained by a marriage where her husband continues to be a stern moral guide. Elizabeth. When Miss Milner announces her passion for her guardian, a Catholic priest, she breaks through the double barrier of his religious vocation and her society's standards of proper womanly behaviour. Her love is legitimized when Dorriforth is released from his vows, but her own unorthodox nature cannot be contained by a marriage where her husband continues to be a stern moral guide. Elizabeth Inchbald is concerned with the question of a woman's 'proper education' and in a novel whose sureness of touch and subtlety of characterization prefigure Jane Austen's work, she shows that there is no simple answer.

Elizabeth Inchbald:

A Simple Story (Penguin Classics) - used book

ISBN: 0140434739

ID: 5229039

A Simple Story by the actress, playwright and novelist Elizabeth Inchbald has remained enduringly popular and almost continuously in print since its first publication in 1791. In scenes charged with understated erotic tension it tells the stories of the flirtatious Miss Milner who falls in love with her guardian, a Roman Catholic priest and aristocrat, and of their daughter Matilda who, banished from her father's sight, craves his love. In her use of dramatic methods-expressive gestures, delayed revelations and economical dialogues-to present these two versions of the same power-struggle between an older father-lover figure and a young girl, Inchbald achieves a psychological intensity and subtlety of characterization rarely found in other late eighteenth-century novelists. classics,contemporary,domestic life,gender studies,humanities,literary,literature,literature and fiction,politics and social sciences,social sciences Women's Studies, Penguin Classics
