Adele loves her life and “She is what all women in her society should be like; she puts her husband and children first, centering her life around her family and her domestic duties(Miller).” Adele is also perceived as woman of self-sacrifice showing almost no interest in her own ambitions, or her own cares.

After years of trying she was chosen to be the Member of Parliament as Conservative candidate for Finchley in northern London on October 1959.

Compared to Showalter's novelists, the feminine phase for Irish women poets lasted much longer, in fact as late as the 1970s. That being the case, the 1980s—not the turn of the century—as the short-lived feminist phase for the few Irish women poets who were willing to try their hand at a form of poetry which was not well received by their local literary community. The feminist phase and the female phase both share the same ideological goals of gender equality, but their methods of achieving those goals differ.
