Sample text

These stories have played an integral role in the discursive reproduction of heteronormative, patriarchal social structures in which the proper role for women is as wives and mothers, even as these roles are understood to be subsumed under male authority. Feminist scholars studying closure have argued persuasively that the conventional domestic novel, marriage narrative, and female bildungsroman overwhelmingly rely upon a teleological trajectory and a linear narrative pattern that constrain women’s endings to three options: marriage, madness, or death.

Viewing the novel as a struggle between “male civilization” and “female nurturing,” she argues that “all the excessive productivity and destruction comes as a result of man’s rule” (8). This type of reading, which idealizes “motherhood” as an alternative that will redeem an excessively male-dominated world, does not do justice to the complexity of Wharton’s critique. No Place for Her Individual Adventure 3 It is easy to understand why critics have been preoccupied with the ending of Summer. As readers, we want to make sense of the way in which the formerly rebellious, resistant Charity has been transformed, “her strength slipping away,” “her resistance melting,” being led to the altar “as passively as a tired child” (243–44).

That is, the reader follows a female protagonist on a quest for self-fulfillment, and the success of her quest appears to be posited on the rejection of her maternal origins. Wharton’s thematic interrogation of the concept of origins and her formal exploitation of the power of narrative beginnings, however, intervenes in these conventional paradigms of motherhood and illuminates a challenge to a genealogical narrative paradigm in which the paternal always trumps the maternal. 7 Like many novels in the bildungsroman tradition, Summer’s opening prepares the reader for the narrative that follows.
