Example text

Anne’s rather ironic search for “stern silent Rhodesians” in Little Hampsley indicates quite clearly that popular fiction does not reflect lived experience and that the lessons learned from one cannot be readily applied to the other. Certainly, the economic concerns that will lead women like Anne to lending libraries rather than to bookshops prohibit such a lifestyle. If Anne’s expectations of life revolve around “perils and love-making” in the arms of a man who does not exist in her village, then they are blatantly unrealistic.

Despite considering herself a “heroine”, she experiences seasickness like “everybody else”. Anne has become a “heroine” by calling herself one, and here differentiates herself from those “in books”. 110 This textual play need not involve ridicule, but it must involve an awareness of context, encouraging readers to rethink the parodied text. Literary parody can raise questions about things that have previously been taken for granted: in this case, there is hypocrisy in expectations that women should be strong enough to “brav[e] the elements” but that they should also be “pathetic” in the arms of men (30).
