Feminist criticism is the most outstanding discovery in the realm of theory as well as in the world of women. Feminist criticism comes in literary world in many forms and feminist critics have various goals. In them, some have been interested to rediscover the works of previous women writers who were over looked by male dominated society and others have started to review the books by male authors from a woman’s point of view. Now a days a number of contemporary feminists have turned to topics as various as women in post colonial societies, women’s autobiographical writings, lesbians and literature in the construction of feminine gender.
Lord Byron and Wuthering Heights: Representations of the (Anti)-HeroineElli Karampela (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki)

After the death of the nineteenth-century literary lion, Byron’s authorial aura reached the Victorians in numerous ways. From Carlyle and Tennyson to the Brontë’s reading and fascination with Byron’s work and personality, one quick overview of Victorian literature can reveal striking influences; an instance is the posthumous fashion launched by the dark Byronic hero for equally charming and repulsive male protagonists who have become similarly notorious for their satanic and mysterious temperament. In the Turkish Tales, however, the deviant Byronic hero coexists and in fact acquires significance from different types of belles that have drawn the attention of the critics; it is interesting to note how Byron displays his ambivalent views on issues of gender by representing heroines in contrasting ways. This paper tackles exactly this contrasting portrait of the female in Byron’s The Corsair (1814) and examines how this portrait can be paralleled, even re-inscribed in the picture of a Victorian heroine like Catherine Earnshaw from Emily Brontë’s transgressing novel Wuthering Heights (1847). Specifically, I aim to focus on power relations in both kinds of writing and how these are transformed into coexisting conforming and dismissive comments on contemporary concerns.
