The Female Quixote, Volume 2

The Female Quixote, Volume 2 by Charlotte Lennox
By: (1730-1804)

The Female Quixote, Volume 2, continues the story of Arabella, a young woman who is obsessed with the romantic novels she reads. In this volume, Arabella's delusions continue as she finds herself in various comical situations due to her misguided beliefs about love and relationships.

The author, Charlotte Lennox, does a fantastic job of satirizing the popular literature of her time, presenting Arabella as a ridiculous but endearing character who is constantly at odds with the realities of the world around her. Lennox's wit and humor shine through in this volume, making for an entertaining and enjoyable read.

While some may find Arabella's naivety and stubbornness frustrating, others will appreciate the clever commentary on gender roles and societal expectations that Lennox weaves into the narrative. The Female Quixote, Volume 2, is a delightful continuation of Arabella's adventures that is sure to entertain and provoke thought in equal measure.

Book Description:
Second Volume of the novel that formally inverts Don Quixote: as the don mistakes himself for the knightly hero of a Romance, so Arabella mistakes herself for the maiden love of a Romance. While the don thinks it his duty to praise the platonically pure damsels he meets (such as the woman he loves), so Arabella believes it is in her power to kill with a look and it is the duty of her lovers to suffer ordeals on her behalf.
