Abstract

It takes a brave soul to publish a "post-Jungian" study of female archetypes in fiction written by nineteenth-century men these days. Let's face it: if the neo-Freudians do not aim first, the feminists will. And then, of course, the Foucaultians will not be far behind. As a critic who has subscribed at various times to all three of those discourse systems, I want to state at the outset that I learned something from reading Joseph Andriano's book, even if I ultimately did not find his methodology persuasive or convincing.
