The Plight and Choice of Grace: Women's Subjectivity in Alice Munro's "Passion"

Chen Zhitong
Abstract—Alice Munro creates many "runaway women" in her highly acclaimed book Runaway, but the strong-willed heroine in the fifth story "Passion" is the character who should be given special attention to. Based on the feminist theory, the author tries to explore the heroine's identity crisis and her choice of running away. From the construction process of women's subjectivity in this story, the messages concerning true selves of women are conveyed.

Index Terms—Alice Munro, “Passion”, feminism, subjectivity.

The author is with Sichuan University, China (e-mail: zhitong97@qq.com).
