Straight From the Horse’s Mouth: Disciplining the Female Body in Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty
Halmstad University.
(English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

At first glance Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty is merely a story about a horse’s life, adventures and destiny. However, a parallel feminist reading reveals and foregrounds the living conditions for women in Victorian England but since this was a highly controversial issue, she was forced to disguise her true intentions. I support my thesis that Sewell is really dealing with the female body as abused, violently disciplined and prostituted by drawing on a wide range of secondary material such as legal acts and women’s fashion.

Keywords [en]
Victorian women, disguised intentions, disciplining women
