Notes

Abstract: This thesis uses three eighteenth-century novels � Maria Edgworth' s Belinda, Frances Burney's Camilla, and Jane Austen's Mansfield Park -- to examine the role of domestic fiction in the education, entertainment, and social culture of women. I evaluate the roles of .women as readers and writers of novels as well as critics of the dominant social system. I examine the function of the proper heroine and the story of courtship as a means for educating young female readers not only about the importance of making a good marriage, but as a way to emphasize self-knowledge, propriety, prudence, and domestic happiness. In addition to my three main texts, I utilize Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Emile, Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Women, and Ruth Bernard Yeazell' s Fictions of Modesty as tools for my research.
