In this book, Judith Newton analyses novels such as Fanny Burney's Evelina, Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice, Charlotte Bronte's Villette and George Eliot's The Mill on the Floss in order to demonstrate how some female writers reacted to the issue by covertly resisting inequities of power and reconciling ideologies in their art. She argues that in this time period, novels became increasingly rebellious as well as ambivalent . Heroines were endowed with power, and emphasis was given to female ability, rather than to feminine influence.
