Dr Serena Trowbridge – Villainesses, Femmes Fatales, Matriarchs and Muses: Du Maurier’s Heroines

Thursday 16 May, 2:00pm-3:00pm
Fowey Town Hall

Du Maurier’s novels are filled with strong women, difficult women, interesting and dangerous women. None of her heroines are boring, but they are all very different, as though the author is experimenting with a variety of approaches to womanhood. It’s well-known that du Maurier herself was often uncomfortable with the expected social roles of wife and mother, seeing herself as both constrained by and existing beyond these stereotypes. Such concerns appear in her depiction of women in her work. This talk will discuss as many of du Maurier’s heroines as can be reasonably covered in the time!
