      Gwendolen discovers that her handsome heroic captain is really a pompous bore. Campaspe, the third daughter, in an effort to save Jane alienates her fiance. It hardly seems that all will come right in the main problem with the book and the reason I would have given it 3 1/2 stars instead of 4 if it were possible, was that Ms. Darcy has 4/5(1). Gwendolen Wilder, San Antonio, Texas. 32K likes. Certified Business Strategist and Published Author, helping struggling female entrepreneurs Kickass past their business fears so they can become more /5(7).

      “Gwendolen seeks to give a deeper understanding to the flighty, sharp, and wholly self-absorbed girl and does so with sympathy and clarity. Gwendolen's redeeming quality is her own self-loathing; she knows she is a bad person who will be punished for her misdeeds. She resigned to this fate but eventually determined to become a better person. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. Good condition, clean and bright internally, book has very little shelf wear. Gwendolen is a lively, affectionate little girl growing up in a Jamaican shanty town. Published in Seller Inventory # More information about this seller | Contact this seller 3.

    Gwendolen Gross received an M. F. A. in poetry and fiction at Sarah Lawrence College. She is the author of the novel Field Guide, which will be published this spring in paperback by lives in northern New Jersey. Lady Bracknell delivers her opinion on engagements to Gwendolen, Cecily, Algernon, and Jack. She clearly favors the engagement of her indolent, penniless nephew Algernon to Cecily. Lady Bracknell just discovered Cecily stands to inherit considerable wealth, a fact that surely weighs heavily in her approval.

In Gwendolen, Diana Souhami performs a bold feat of imagination: what would happen if George Eliot’s final novel were retold from the perspective of its beautiful, complicated, circumscribed heroine?The result is intriguing and moving: a fictional recovery of the woman’s interior experience that lies untold behind the man’s journey to fulfilment, and a powerful meditation upon the nature.
