American Culture, Canons, and the Case of Elizabeth Stoddard - Google Libros
They were pictures of New England scenes and characters. In , she published Lolly Dinks's Doings , a juvenile story. Elizabeth Drew Barstow was born May 6, , in the small coastal town of Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. She received a thorough education in various boarding-schools and in her school-days showed her bent towards poetry and literature in general. After her marriage in to poet Richard Henry Stoddard, the couple settled permanently in New York City , where they belonged to New York's vibrant, close-knit literary and artistic circles.
She assisted her husband in his literary work, and contributed stories, poems and essays to the periodicals. Stoddard is most widely known today as the author of The Morgesons , her first of three novels.
Her other two novels are Two Men and Temple House Stoddard was also a prolific writer of short stories, children's tales, poems, essays, travel writing, and journalism pieces. Her work combines the narrative style of the popular nineteenth-century male-centered bildungsroman with the conventions of women's romantic fiction in this revolutionary exploration of the conflict between a woman's instinct, passion, and will, and the social taboos, family allegiances, and traditional New England restraint that inhibit her. Her most studied work, The Morgesons is set in a small seaport town, and is the dramatic story of Cassandra Morgeson's fight against social and religious norms in a quest for sexual, spiritual, and economic autonomy.
An indomitable heroine, Cassandra not only achieves an equal and complete love with her husband and ownership of her family's property, but also masters the skills and accomplishments expected of women. Counterpointed with the stultified lives of her aunt, mother, and sister, Cassandra's success is a striking and radical affirmation of women's power to shape their own destinies. Institutional Login.
