Though Daisy Miller is written by a man and preoccupied with male protagonists but the writer has used a subtle technique of psychological realism in order to portray the complex moral as well as sexual challenges faced by American woman abroad in Europe. Daisy Miller short novel is based on conflict that arises from interaction between artless American tourists and sophisticated Europeans. It is a story of a young American girl, Daisy who refuses to follow the status quo in Europe.

Well, the novels which grow out of psychological realism are thought to be character driven and they put special focus on the interior lives of protagonists and the views of other characters (Potter).
This is mirrored in the French Lieutenants Woman as there is a significant difference in how women and men view sex and how they are expected to engage or refrain from engaging in it. In light of this, it is difficult for a modern day reader to imagine certain aspects of this gendered attitude towards sex. The norms and conventions of the society in which the novels are set is also very interesting when considering the societal divisions between novels. The fact that in The French Lieutenants Woman, Fowles questions key Victorian principles and social conformities leads the reader to believe that the novel is mostly postmodernist however, the novel also encounters a Victorian farm girl who disregards social convention and the Victorian notion of womanhood and this affirms that the novel is also historical. The subject of the novel is fundamentally rather similar to that of his other works: the relations between maker and their creation highlighting a persons personal struggle for selfhood alongside the belief that one should abide by convention being questioned through the sheer hypocrisy of the principal characters.

The novel presents a Victorian tale and setting with the elements of Postmodernism and the characters that are ahead of their time. Thus, it resembles a Victorian novel in structure and detail, while pushing the traditional boundaries of narrative in a very modern manner. It explores the fraught relationship of gentleman and amateur naturalist Charles Smithson and Sarah Woodruff, the former governess and independent woman with whom he falls in love. Fowles has represented Sarah Woodruff and Charles in a very contrasting manner, one being so independent and other like more stereotypical male characters, that also receives attention for its tn reatment of gender issues. The novel builds on Fowles ' authority in Victorian literature, both following and critiquing many of the conventions of period novels.
ane Austen’s historical background was the most relevant and helpful aspect added within her literary works since she provided typical features of her epoch (the Regency Period) in them through characters, events, social customs, and so on, as it is seen in Pride and Prejudice. Due to historical factors, Austen’s point of view in her works was ‘biased’, that is to say, she had her own opinion on different matters, and as it is known, she was a proud feminist who expressed her beliefs when she wrote. The Regency Period was a time of social instability in England: from the ‘madness’ of King George III, to the passivity and excessive life of his son, who was to be King George IV. Obviously, the judicial power did not favour every single person
It proves its genuine precocity to allow the reader to know about the heroine’s ordeals, feelings of frustration as well as about her victimization within the oppressive patriarchal society. It displays women’s struggles to conceal the politics of gender roles of their epoch and to protest against the Law of the Father. In her discussion of Gothic tropes, Anne Williams reveals that Female Gothic falls under the rubric of a marginalised genre while identifying the critical reception of the gothic in the pre-romantic era with the categorization of women as peripherized subjects, admitting that this literary form has been “congenial” to them and pleasantly suited to their lower social position (Fleenor The Female Gothic 8). In one sense, this may have been a reaction to exclusion from the male-dominated ‘higher arts’ of poetic and philosophical discourse: the natural desire to express oneself finding a new and perhaps more congenial form from only gradually found critical respectability (The Gothic Tradition

John Fowles’s The French Lieutenant’s Woman came to light in June 1969. It is clear that the novel tackles motifs such as love and intrigue, prototypical themes of the Victorian Novel. However, Fowles’s ultimate motive was not that of writing a conventional Victorian story but that of revealing an experimental narrative in which Victorian elements are explored from a perspective of the late sixties. Fowles presents us with a new reading of 1867, incorporating references of many of the events that took place during that gap of time. Barry Lewis states that “The postmodernist writer distrusts the wholeness and completion associated with traditional stories, and prefers to deal with other ways of structuring narrative.” (Stuart Sim (ed.)
