Sarah et le lieutenant français by John Fowles Summary

Mars 1867, Sarah Woodruff, abandonnée par son amant - un lieutenant français - vit plus ou moins repliée sur elle-même, ignorée d'une petite communauté puritaine qui la considère un peu folle. Ce n'est pas l'avis de Charles Smithson, seul homme à oser un jour s'approcher d'elle, et dont la vie est peu à peu bouleversée par cette rencontre. Sarah et le Lieutenant français n'est pas seulement un grand roman d'amour, c'est aussi l'histoire d'une femme en quête de son émancipation et une féroce peinture de mœurs. Avec, pour toile de fond, la cité portuaire de Lyme Regis et les falaises du Dorset, dans cette Angleterre victorienne où, comme le dit John Fowles, " les gens momifiaient leurs sentiments dans d'étranges bandelettes ".

Interfacing Text and Paratexts by Hasina Wahida Summary

Scholarly Research Paper from the year 2012 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: -, University of Burdwan, course: MA, language: English, abstract: John Fowles' The French Lieutenant's Woman (1969), a Victorian novel with 20th century outlook, is a wonder of contemporary fiction where Fowles has introduced novel techniques of experimentation and versatility of style making it a postmodern text. Fowles has woven in his oeuvre novel techniques like epigraphs, intertextual echoes, authorial digressions, intrusions etc through which the conflict between the Victorian and the Modern world is dexterously given expression. The present paper proposes to establish a link between the text and the epigraphs, and show thereby their interplay.

The Deception of the Reader in "The French Lieutenant’s Woman" by John Fowles by Alexandra Baum Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,7, University of Freiburg (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), language: English, abstract: John Fowles is a postmodern writer who was born March 31, 1926 in Leigh-on-Sea and who died in Lyme Regis, England in 2005. He was greatly inspired by the works of the French existentialists Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre, which is often mirrored in his narrations. Fowles is one of the most well-known authors of Postwar British Fiction and has published his famous book (a pastiche of the Victorian novel) The French Lieutenant’s Woman, which has won several awards, in 1969. Due to its popularity the book has been made into a movie starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons in 1981. The novel takes place in Lyme Regis, England during the Victorian era in 1867 and is about the young gentleman Charles Smithson who, already engaged to a successful haberdasher’s daughter, falls in love with Sarah Woodruff, who is disdained by the society of Lyme Regis for her alleged affair with a French lieutenant. John Fowles uses a postmodern narrator to tell a story that visibly has a very conventional Victorian framework. This narrator presents the love story of Charles and Sarah through a mixture of plot and personal comments by playing with the features of postmodern literature in order to deceive the reader and to challenge him into finding his own reality in the narration. The way the story is told shows a great interplay between the information the narrator gives to the reader and the information that is left out in order to mislead him. This technique therefore raises the question of how the reader is to understand the wholeness of John Fowles’s novel when he is deceived throughout its plot. In this paper I am going to answer the question of how the reader is to understand the meaning of the book first, by giving a brief overview on Wolfgang Iser’s reader-response theory and its importance in the reading experience of The French Lieutenant’s Woman and second, by analyzing the different appearances of the narrator by using postmodern features like the creation of suspense, deception and illusion that Fowles used to manipulate the reader.

"The French Lieutenant’s Woman" - Themes, narrative perspective, and the meaning of the main characters’ relationship by Nils Schnelle Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1-, Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, course: Hauptseminar: Novel and Film, language: English, abstract: One of John Fowles’s most famous works, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, is remarkable in many ways. The author combines an intriguing story, narrated in the typical Victorian manner, with a detailed account of Victorian England. Moreover, Fowles also manages to convey to the reader his actual conviction of how a novel should be written from the modern author’s stance, while criticizing both the “form-obsessed noveau roman school” (Huffaker 99) and the shortcomings of Victorian writing-techniques. This research paper will examine some of the book's aspects, mainly the central theme of Darwinism, and the accurate depiction of the Victorian age while maintaining a certain critical distance. Also, the narrative perspective and the alternative endings while be discussed, and finally the development and meaning of the central relationship between the protagonists Sarah Woodruff and Charles Smithson.

John Fowles by Brooke Lenz Summary

Best known as the author of The French Lieutenant's Woman and The Magus, John Fowles achieved both critical and popular success as a writer of profound and provocative fiction. In this innovative new study, Brooke Lenz reconsiders Fowles' controversial contributions to feminist thought. Combining literary criticism and feminist standpoint theory,John Fowles: Visionary and Voyeur examines the problems that women readers and feminist critics encounter in Fowles' frequently voyeuristic fiction.Over the course of his career, this book argues, Fowles progressively created women characters who subvert voyeuristic exploitation and who author alternative narratives through which they can understand their experiences, cope with oppressive dominant systems, and envision more authentic and just communities. Especially in the later novels, Fowles' women characters offer progressive alternative approaches to self-awareness, interpersonal relationships, and social reform – despite Fowles' problematic idealization of women and even his self-professed “cruelty” to the women in his own life. This volume will be of interest to critics and readers of contemporary fiction, but most of all, to men and women who seek a progressive, inclusive feminism.
