It sounds very ambitious! I have read the book a few years ago. It was quite fascinating!

I am not sure if you write this thesis for the subject "Women's Studies" or  "Literature" or "Social Studies" because each of them would have a different emphasis (at least in my opinion).

It is not clear to me why you have this long chapter about Jungian archetypes and why you have chosen C.G.Jung in this context.

All the best for your forthcoming work!

I can see that your major is in English. I can't give any comment because I haven't read this book yet. And I think this level of English is too far for me.


I am here just to say "hi".


Keep up your work.!

Thank you.
