Published by Harper New Hardcover Quantity Available: 1. Seller Rating:. Let's see. My other favorite literary heroines Oh yes- I love Emma Woodhouse for the same reason! She's adorably delusional and sort of reminds me of Scarlett in that regard.
Jane Eyre and Elizabeth Bennet are pretty cool too, although it's been years since I've read either Jane Eyre or Pride and Prejudice, so they are likely much cooler than I remember. I agree with you on that count Blue, I simply cannot read a book with a protagonist I don't care about.
Iso, you must reread Pride and Prejudice! It's pure brilliance.
The Heroine's Bookshelf : Life Lessons, from Jane Austen to Laura Ingalls Wilder
Yes, Emma is like Scarlett in that regard. I wonder at Jane Austen not being able to conceive people's love for this character. I, personally, am drawn to characters that have realistic flaws. Editors' Note: A while back, we received a lovely email from Erin Blakemore , who had some very kind words for the blog. But that's not the cool part.
The Quivering Pen: Friday Freebie: "The Heroine's Bookshelf" by Erin Blakemore
This is: you see, not only is Erin is a longtime Gone with the Wind fan, she is also a first-time author! Erin was kind enough to send us a review copy of her book, which explores classic literary heroines and includes a chapter on our much-loved Scarlett O'Hara.
So today we're delighted to offer you a look at The Heroine's Bookshelf. Thank you to Erin for her generosity and kindness in sharing her book with us. Congratulations to you!
It starts with a heroine — a larger-than-life, unforgettable heroine. Blakemore offers reflections, at turns both poignant and funny, about how women can thoughtfully apply these timeless values in a modern world that can be infinitely harried and complex, one that all too often does not allow for moments of introspection.
