FANTOMINA NOTES Woman’s Lit -By Eliza Haywood- in 1725- Haywood’s prolific fiction develops from titillating romance novels and amatory fiction during the early 1720s to works focused more on “women's rights and position” (Schofield, Haywood 63) in the later 1720s into the 1730s. In the middle novels of her career, women were locked up, tormented and beleaguered by domineering men. In the later novels of the 1740s and 1750s however, marriage was viewed as a positive situation between men and women. -Celebrates Aristocratic power of woman- This Aristocratic power doesn’t work and marry into theses middle class families because of the mixed theater -Combines Masque and Masquade- Masque- not revolutionary and it depicts how the celebrated Aristocratic power was very popular in James and Charles Court where actors portraying these rich Aristocrats chased the Antimasque (disruptive and negative) and forced them out of the stage. -Here this was to dumbfound the audience to gain influence on the middle class.
