Acerca de


Tableaux Vivants, a term for the popular nineteenth-century parlor game and entertainment vehicle in which women posed as famous paintings or historical figures (living pictures), examines how nine famous novels written by American women between 1850 and 1986 depict female identity development as a process of learning to “perform” the feminine role expected by society. The study also analyzes how these everyday “tableaux” reflected social tensions generated by gender and class distinctions.

About the Author:

Grace Ann Hovet died March 15, 2008, shortly after completing the manuscript for Tableaux Vivants. She retired from the University of Northern Iowa in 1999 as professor emerita of English. She also founded successful programs in gender studies and leadership studies. During this time, she published articles on women in literature in major scholarly journals. In 1991 she received the Distinguished Faculty Award from the Iowa American Association of University Women. She is survived by her husband, Theodore, and son, Theodore Jr.
