Questions of female development shape women's studies in many
fields as women seek to define those forces which mold their
experiences. Surprisingly, this is the first book to study
systematically and from a comparative perspective the female novel
of development, or Bildungsroman. Prevailing definitions of the
Bildungsroman derive from the conceptions of development based on
male experience. The book offers an expanded generic model that
incorporates the distinctively female patterns of realization and
failed realization which emerge from the limited social
opportunities depicted in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century
novel and from the particular features of women's maturation as
revealed by recent feminist psychoanalytic research.
