9781440504174: An Uncommon Heroine: Scarlett, Edna, Sula--and More Than 20 Other of the Most Remarkable Women in Literature

One is not born a woman, one becomes one.
-Simone de Beauvoir

Literature has provided us with some of the most unforgettable women in history. From wives and mothers to daughters and lovers, these women all have one thing in common--they're uncommon heroines. This unique collection includes more than twenty great novel excerpts depicting women young and old, wise and weary, flamboyant and cunning such as:

  • Emma Woodhouse in Emma by Jane Austen
  • Jane Eyre in Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
  • Evelyn Couch in Fried Green Tomatoes by Fannie Flagg
  • Celie in The Color Purple by Alice Walker

This book celebrates the women we envy, admire, and are inspired by--generation after generation.
