Gender in Helen Fieldings Bridget Jones: The Edge of reason and Jane Austens Pride and prejudice
2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to compare the life of Bridget Jones, living in the 21st century with Elizabeth Bennet, living in the 19th century. By looking closer at Fielding’s The Edge of Reason and Austen’s Pride and Prejudice one will find both similarities and differences between Bridget Jones and Elizabeth Bennet. First we might consider the novels very different but a closer examination shows that the basic conditions and possibilities for a woman have not radically changed. The essay shows that the two novels share many features concerning women, even though they are written during different centuries and it also shows that the women depicted in the novels are still_x000B_often treated as inferior to men.
