Giới thiệu:

_The Egoist_ is a tragicomical novel by George Meredith published in 1879. The novel recounts the story of self-absorbed Sir Willoughby Patterne and his attempts at marriage; jilted by his first bride-to-be, he vacillates between the sentimental Laetitia Dale and the strong-willed Clara Middleton. More importantly, the novel follows Clara’s attempts to escape from her engagement to Sir Willoughby, who desires women to serve as a mirror for him and consequently cannot understand why she would not want to marry him. Thus, _The Egoist_ dramatizes the difficulty contingent upon being a woman in Victorian society, when women’s bodies and minds are trafficked between fathers and husbands to cement male bonds.
