Abstract/Description: Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth Gaskell, and George Eliot struggled against conventions and endured criticism as authors. Despite personal turmoil, each eventually civilized some of her rebelliousness, and in her life and writing embraced the symbol of conventional wisdom and lifestyle – marriage.
