10.3.16 Portrait of a Lady - Even though no one likes her marriage acceptance, she goes with it. - Not hearing from her for three years, is like a big representation of her losing her identity. - But if we think of who her alternatives are for a husband, then it kind of makes sense when she is discieved into marrying Osmond: - - Alternatives: Reality: - - Ralph - Gilbert. - - Warburton - - Casper - A discussion btwn Gilbert and Isabel: “make your life a work of art…” - - he likes the asthetics - - in a way, she becomes a work of art in his gallery. - It comes down to: “Why do you marry?” - - at this point in time, you didn't do it all for love, some of it was about money and some of it was about making families happy, etc. - - for Isabel, it isn’t about maternal instinct. - What are we looking at?: - - theoretical notions of what marriage looks like - V. - - pragmatic aftermath, with no experience. - - due to her environment being different than what she thought she was getting into. - - marriage, now days, is still in the top 3 things that every woman wants to do, but, back then, it was the number one purpose of women, and to have babies. James: - Cant chug anything of his, you must take your time with anything of his due to the way he writes. - He uses covab in order to describe marriage as something that binds you and un-enables you Characters: - Gilbert: Isabel doesn't really know who he is, but she goes along with marrying him because of who he seems to be. He is an American, which is ironic because Isabel goes across the sea to get away from America. - Casper: she rejects him (a rich American). It is hard for readers to like him because of how he is. 10.5.16 No class 10.7.16 In class writing
