2018-06-01
The Village of Stone and The Silent Duchess are contemporary novels which depict clearly the oppression on women in the male-dominated society both in the 18th century and in our times. Both heroines have a similar experience in life and the endings of the novels are identical. The gloomy, depressive atmosphere of each novel turns into hope and optimisim in relation to the future. This paper analyses the hardships both protagonists go through and despite the difculties they face, it suggests that so long as women assert their own will, they are destined to reach victory.
