Item Description: University of Texas Press, 1994. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "It is a truth universally acknowledged . . ." that a single woman in possession of a good character but no fortune must be in want of a wealthy husband--that is, if she is the heroine of a nineteenth-century novel. Senhora , by contrast, turns the tables on this familiar plot. Its strong-willed, independent heroine Aurlia uses newly inherited wealth to "buy back" and exact revenge on the fianc who had left her for a woman with a more enticing dowry. This exciting Brazilian novel, originally published in 1875 and here translated into English for the first time, raises many questions about traditional gender relationships, the commercial nature of marriage, and the institution of the dowry. While conventional marital roles triumph in the end, the novel still offers realistic insights into the social and economic structure of Rio de Janeiro in the mid-1800s. With its unexpected plot, it also opens important new perspectives on the nineteenth-century Romantic novel. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_029270450X

Item Description: University of Texas Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 219 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.It is a truth universally acknowledged . . . that a single woman in possession of a good character but no fortune must be in want of a wealthy husbandthat is, if she is the heroine of a nineteenth-century novel. Senhora, by contrast, turns the tables on this familiar plot. Its strong-willed, independent heroine Aurlia uses newly inherited wealth to buy back and exact revenge on the fianc who had left her for a woman with a more enticing dowry. This exciting Brazilian novel, originally published in 1875 and here translated into English for the first time, raises many questions about traditional gender relationships, the commercial nature of marriage, and the institution of the dowry. While conventional marital roles triumph in the end, the novel still offers realistic insights into the social and economic structure of Rio de Janeiro in the mid-1800s. With its unexpected plot, it also opens important new perspectives on the nineteenth-century Romantic novel. This item ships from multiple locations.
