- 영국 낭만주의와 미국의 낭만주의는 그들이 갖고 있는 각기 상이한 환경 때문에 각기 다른 양상을 보여주고 있다. 본 논문에서는 Jane Eyre, The Deerslayer, 그리고 The Marble Faun에 등장하는 서로 대조적인 여성 등장인물들을 중심으로 해서 그 차이점을 살펴보고자 한다.
This paper is aimed at studying the difference of English and American Romanticism through women characters of English and American romantic novels, which are Jane Eyre, The Deer-slayer, and The Marble Faun. In English romantic novels, man appears as a threatening figure to a young and innocent girl. But the girl cannot help being dependent upon the man because he is the symbol of a social and moral authority. Thus, the British Romantic and Victorian writers take the form of marriage as a solution to women characters' problems. In American Romantic novels, woman appears as a threatening figure to a romantic hero because American Romantic novelists tried to emphasize the wilderness of the New World. Therefore, marriage cannot be a solution to women characters' problems in spite of the fact that America has few rigid social customs and class structures.
