Notes

Abstract: The role of the mentor-lover in nineteenth century novels was to educate a young woman to better fit the expectations and roles society prescribed her. Drawing from their unrequited loves for their mentors, Charlotte Bronte and Louisa May Alcott rewrote theirs lives, casting themselves as heroines who successfully earn the love and respect of the fictionalized versions of their mentors. By examining the mentor-lover relationships of Lucy Snowe and M. Paul in Bronte's Villette and Jo March and Professor Bhaer in Alcott's Little Women, I wish to explore how the dynamics of these relationships actually create equal lovers, by allowing the mentor and protege to learn from one another. By embedding lessons in a mentor-lover relationship, Bronte and Alcott both teach their readers ideas they believe to be important. While these ideas come off as strong and true, what can actually be taken from them since they are found in autobiographical rewrites of their own failed relationships?
