A 7 page paper in which the writer argues that while both women were expressing changing attitudes in femininity thought in their books through contrast and duality, Edith Wharton's view was made through an expansive flowing growth and Mary Shelley's was from an explosive view. The purpose of both stories was to show the need for men and women to come together in equal treatment of women during different eras. Whereas Wharton looked at the changes from the idea of growing together, Shelley's view was of killing off the old ideas. No additional sources cited.
