Abstract

The paper will first of all begin with an introduction where the thesis of the paper will be developed and accounted for. Secondly and before the main analysis begins, a brief explanation about feminism will be clarified in a chapter divided into two sections, one dealing with the history and background of the term while the other section describes the different definitions of the term which hopefully will clarify the meaning if it was not familiar to the reader earlier. Since the term feminism is an important part of this paper, I believe that this chapter is of big importance and as soon as the term is clarified for the reader, it will consequently help the reader to understand the rest of the paper. Especially the section that deals whit the question: what characterizes a feminist novel, since there are similarities and connections between the term feminism and a feminist novel. By understanding the meaning of the term one consequently also gets a clue what a feminist novel can be about.

So therefore it is also necessary to explain the characterizations of a feminist novel, to be able to argue that this novel is feminist as well. Despite the fact that there are hardly any references to critics that ‘define’ a feminist work of art, there are still plenty of praised works that are regarded as feminist. By comparing these praised feminist works with The Golden Notebook it will help to show that this novel is just as feminist as the others. Secondly a section where a short summary of the novel will be accounted for, so the reader can get a little hint of what the novel is all about. Then the actual analysis will follow where the statement will be proved; that the Golden Notebook really is a feminist novel by dividing the arguments into two main sections, one called Family and Home and the other called Love and Relationship where arguments related to these two subjects will be used.
