Have You Met Miss Jones?: Identity Construction of a Chick Lit Heroine
Dalarna University, School of Languages and Media Studies, English.
2009 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Take a random woman in her mid-twenties, with a crazy mother, a lousy job and no sex life, add some insecurity and a lot of alcohol and wrap her up in pink, and congratulations, you have just created your own chick lit heroine. The question is whether a chick lit heroine is this simplistic, or if she carries an important message to the readers. The most important traits in a chick lit novel are the complicated mother-daughter relationship, the career and the love life. Thus, this essay will outline to what extent the postfeminist features are depicted in the identity of Bridget Jones, as an epitome of later chick lit heroines.
