Title: A Hermeneutic of the Marginalized
Author: Anderson, Kaela
Department: School of Languages and Literatures
Program: English
Advisor: Chang, Elaine
Abstract: This thesis situates itself as a revisionist reading of Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre and Toni Morrison’s Beloved. These novels intersect by creating a new hermeneutic of the marginalized. This project is a revisionist reading of Beloved and Jane Eyre through the lens of faith, equality, and liberation. This project puts forward that a revisionist reading of Beloved and Jane Eyre will hear the voices of Toni Morrison and Charlotte Bronte as theological voices, and argues this thesis argues that these women wrote fiction, an acceptable form of writing for women, as a vehicle to express their biblical exegesis, which was a hermeneutic of the marginalized.
