Eliza Sommers, rebellious woman of her time? : Transgressions and consequences in the novel The fortunes daughter by Isabel Allende (English)
The aim of this monograph is to demonstrate the probable transgressions of Eliza Sommers who is the protagonist of The fortunes daughter (1999) written by the Chilean writer Isabel Allende. This novel is the base for our work and it was written in the postboom framework there we can evidently observe the strength of the feminist’s characters.
Through investigating the model of conducts that was current by the chronological time the novel is based and by using the adequate theoretical model for this analysis we will either demonstrate or refuse our hypothesis. With this goal in mind and this theoretical framework we will try to explain the diversity of terms but principally patriarchy, feminism and stereotypes.
Raising a few different questions helped us to come to the conclusion that all the transgressions the protagonist has been going through just helped her to get a better life as a woman, without hinders and in freedom.
