Victorian Secrets Book Discussion

Monday   TIME:  7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Facilitated by Marsha BanSavage, Co-sponsored by CT Humanities at 7:00 PM.
In Victorian England, the status and role of women were subjects of political debate, literary discourse and pictorial representation. From the idealization of The Angel in the House (the domestic guardian of morality and virtue) to the imprisonment of The Madwoman in the Attic (the closeted hysteric), various images of women suffuse Victorian literature and art. Through discussions of four great novels of the period, we will consider the depiction of women in an age in which women were both worshipped and subjugated.
