Haroian-Guerin (English, Syracuse U.) explores the subversive revision of the figure of Diana as an ideal model for the heroic woman in the novels of Charlotte Bronte, Nathaniel Hawthorne, James Joyce, Henry James, George Eliot, and Edith Wharton. Looking at language, images, themes and heroic characters, she finds a unidentified nexus between women's studies and modern literature. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
