Now that you’ve read both of these novels, I’d like you to compare them as literary texts. Let’s focus specifically on them as works that reflect some of the ideals and also anxieties of the times in which they were written. In what ways do you think they relate to those ideals? Are they revolutionary? Regressive? A combination of both? In your response, pay special attention to the resolution created by both texts. What evidence do the endings provide?
