Book excerpt: USA Today's top 100 books to read while stuck at home social distancing The iconic #1 bestseller by Helen Fielding; Bridget Jones is now the inspiration for the September 2016 Working Title film release of Bridget Jones's Baby, starring Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey and Emma Thompson. Bridget Jones's Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton on a permanent doomed quest for self-improvement. Caught between the joys of Singleton fun, and the fear of dying alone and being found three weeks later half eaten by an Alsatian; tortured by Smug Married friends asking, "How's your love life?" with lascivious, yet patronizing leers, Bridget resolves to: reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1.5 inches, visit the gym three times a week not just to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult and learn to program the VCR. With a blend of flighty charm, existential gloom, and endearing self-deprecation, Bridget Jones's Diary has touched a raw nerve with millions of readers the world round. Read it and laugh—before you cry, "Bridget Jones is me!"

Pondering these, and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of single-motherhood, tweeting, texting and redisovering her sexuality in what SOME people rudely and outdatedly call 'middle age'.

Download Free Modern Confessional Writing PDF by Jo Gill Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2006-03-29 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A comprehensive and scholarly account of this popular and influential genre, the essays in this collection explore confessional literature from the mid-twentieth century to the present day, and include the writing of John Berryman, Anne Sexton, Ted Hughes and Helen Fielding. Drawing on a wide range of examples, the contributors to this volume evaluate and critique conventional readings of confessionalism. Orthodox, humanist notions of the literary act of confession and its assumed relationship to truth, authority and subjectivity are challenged, and in their place a range of new critical perspectives and practices are adopted. Modern Confessional Writing develops and tests new theoretically-informed views on what confessional writing is, how it functions, and what it means to both writer and reader. When read from these new perspectives modern confessional writing is liberated from the misconception that it provides a kind of easy authorial release and readerly catharsis, and is instead read as a discursive, self-reflexive, sophisticated and demanding genre.

She is messy, slightly overweight and, even worse, she is still single. Clumsy Bridget spends her time downing drinks with her crazy single friends and strolling around the office with her little skirt. Helen Fielding ́s modern novel opens the diary of a British single woman who is desperately looking for “Mr. Right” in a world of “emotional fuckwittages”. Quite the contrary is Elizabeth Bennet, the young heroine in Jane Austen ́s most famous novel Pride and Prejudice. She is one of 5 daughters, polite, sophisticated, selfless and, due to her education, she would never compromise herself in public like Bridget always does. One can hardly believe that there can be found any parallels between Bridget Jones ́s Diary and the probably most romantic British novel, Pride and Prejudice. In fact, there are about 200 years between both works but they are indeed comparable...

Abstract: Caroline Wong MA in Applied Linguistics Keeping an 'I' out: A Discourse Analysis of Bridget Jones's Diary Abstract Selling six million copies, translated into 25 languages and published in 33 countries spawning two movies and two sequels (10meters.com, para. 4), Bridget Jones's Diary has been a phenomenal publishing success. Marking a divergence from traditional romances which pit a beautiful, courageous young heroine in the arms of an initially, cold and distant handsome hero, Fielding offered a heroine who was flawed in the traditional sense, being neither stunningly beautiful, nor young, but winning hearts because of her very imperfections. The content and style of this book was to ignite the beginnings of a new generation of writing that appealed directly to young women. Called 'chick-lit' these novels broke from the rigidity of traditional romance formulas, removing the more fairy-tale element. Heroines were cast in the ordinary environments of the workplace and life in the city, and the novels focused on work, female relationships, and the ups and downs of their relationship with men. Bridget Jones's Diary has been chosen for analysis because it is a novel written by a woman almost exclusively for a female audience and because the impact on its readership, and indeed the publishing world in terms of women's writing, has been enormous. This is the book that has inspired two sequels, two major films and given words like "fuckwittage" and "singleton" a place in the English language. Taking ideas from critics who have written on gender and discourse such as Robin Lakoff, Judith Butler and Mary Crawford, the language of the novel is examined to analyse 1how concepts of gender interplay through the discourse of the novel. The characters pick and choose their language depending on how they wish to express themselves and the image of femininity that they wish to articulate, but they are bound by societal expectations. This dissertation shows the restrictions to the characters' expression of the self in the novel and also the methods which the characters deploy in order to get around these boundaries. st Submitted 31 August, 2006 2 DOI: 10.5353/th_b3672304

Book excerpt: From the bestselling Bridget Jones's Diary that started the trend to the television sensation Sex and the City that captured it on screen, "chick lit" has become a major pop culture phenomenon. Banking on female audiences' identification with single, urban characters who struggle with the same life challenges, publishers have earned millions and even created separate imprints dedicated to the genre. Not surprisingly, some highbrow critics have dismissed chick lit as trashy fiction, but fans have argued that it is as empowering as it is entertaining. This is the first volume of its kind to examine the chick lit phenomenon from a variety of angles, accounting for both its popularity and the intense reactions-positive and negative-it has provoked. The contributors explore the characteristics that cause readers to attach the moniker "chick" to a particular book and what, if anything, distinguishes the category of chick lit from the works of Jane Austen on one end and Harlequin romance novels on the other. They critique the genre from a range of critical perspectives, considering its conflicted relationship with feminism and postfeminism, heterosexual romance, body image, and consumerism. The fourteen original essays gathered here also explore such trends and subgenres as "Sistah Lit," "Mommy Lit," and "Chick Lit Jr.," as well as regional variations. As the first book to consider the genre seriously, Chick Lit offers real insight into a new generation of women's fiction.
