The French Lieutenant’s Woman
First Edition by John Fowles
The French Lieutenant’s Woman is a much loved novel detailing the effects of repressed passions and the pressures of having to conform to the social conventions of the times it is set in.
The novel explores the fraught relationship of gentleman and amateur naturalist, Charles Smithson, and the former governess and independent woman, Sarah Woodruff, with whom he falls in love. The novel builds on Fowles’ authority in Victorian literature, both following and critiquing many of the conventions of period novels.
The French Lieutenant’s Woman is a 1969 postmodern historical fiction novel by John Fowles. It was his third published novel, after The Collector and The Magus.
