Thinking about space: Where do women belong?

In this lesson, we will build on our understanding of the Mary/Eve dichotomy and look at a generic context idea with the 'Lady on the Pedestal' and an historical context idea with 'The Angel in the House.' Both these ideas will lead us to think about the space women occupy in society and how they are positioned and presented for us to read in texts. We'll go back to a passage from our 'Dracula' extract and continue to strengthen our interpretation.
