Jean Rhys further evaluates Antoinette while, Charlotte Bronte affirmed that it was left cleared. Antoinette, like Jane, evolves in a world with a negligible measure of affection to offer. Both of these characters are taken care of by relatives, both had lonely childhood experiences, and both had lost their only friend. Jane is competent in refusing herself, the trademarks others put on her shape her character, while Antoinette is baffled by having a body, soul and life. She is overlooked by everybody aside from Josephine and has little correspondence with others.

The first one is Mrs. Ramsay, a woman still belonging to the Victorian age, the second, Lily Briscoe, here called a “New woman”. My intention is also to analyze the significance of Lily’s painting and how it symbolizes and represents her coming to terms with her homosexuality, and simultaneously her feelings towards Mrs. Ramsay.

Jo dreams of becoming a great writer and does not want to become a conventional adult woman. I would tell my friend that this book can make you very sentimental and it can make you think that even when people tell you that you cannot do something, you always try and show them up. The story Little Women took place during and after the Civil war, roughly 1861-1876 in a small town in England.

(Bronte 2010: v) Experiences and solitary life in the isolated and gloomy landscapes of the Yorkshire moors unquestionably influenced the work of Emily Brontë the most. The only close bond were with her family and her dog Keeper. (Adams 2000) The majority of what is known about her and her life comes from what others wrote and scarce private letters and journals. Even though she wrote it under a male pseudonym, many believed that she, as a female in the Victorian era, was not able to write such an intense and dark novel in which the characters are driven by their desires. At the time of the novels release, critics and the audience were deeply distraught by its refusal to accept the norms of the Victorian era and almost demonic characterisation of main characters.
