Lecture 15 – 131030
- Pg. 194-195: “Throughout life, there cannot happen an event…rigour
and justice”
oAmplifies sense of discontinuity (ex: Dorriforth changes title to
Lord Elmwood)
oUpdates on other characters
oInchbald trying to do things that are different from what we’ve
seen Austen and Burney do with the novel form (not just
Inchbald’s play, but Austen also uses many allusions in Mansfield
Park)
oAspects of this novel that link it closely to Evelina
We’ve sort of seen this double plot (story of mother and
then of daughter)
Quest for paternal recognition – learning of mother’s
story before and then of the daughter’s story
Evelina published in some way like A Simple Story
oLots of novels by women in late 18th century developed this kind
of plot structure because women stories are set in problem of
what the daughter can inherit from the mother
Preoccupation of lots of late 18th century novels of women
oLate 18th century novels by women are conscious that women do
not inherit property
Festivities are for her cousin’s coming of age (male) and
emphasizes to Matilda that she’s disinherited from her
father; she doesn’t get anything from her father
oFear that what girls inherit from their mothers is their mothers’
shame
Wollstoncraft in novel she writes during her pregnancy also
has a two generational structure (mother’s letter to her
daughter of her story – only thing she can give her
daughter is her daughter)
Inchbald’s next novel is of a mother handing packages of
letters which she writes in prison for murder, to her
daughter
Sense of looking to another generation to correct the faults
of the current generation
oPg. 337-338: “He has beheld the pernicious effects…Matilda was
bred?”
Matilda shows us that female character is the female
autonomy and the relationship between Matilda (and her
father) and authority
- Time jump is linked to Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Play
oKing Leontes of Sicily, who suddenly suspects that his wife,
Hermione, is pregnant by another man
