I authored a thesis entitled, "She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: The Rejection Plot in Jane Austen," in which I established a literary trend that responded to British anxieties surrounding the French Revolution. I examined the men the heroines rejected and compared them to those who were ultimately accepted; interestingly, in some cases, it was the same man. By looking closely at the period's political thinkers, I saw fiction mirror a larger cultural shift in masculine performance. On the novel's stage, this shift hinged on the female protagonist's decision to say yes or no to a suitor's proposal. I concluded that the prescribed 'effeminate' masculinity of the late 1700s was slowly reshaping in response to calls for a modernized masculinity—one that reflected a strong, stalwart, and hardworking nation—and this ultimately led to the markers of what some still consider 'appropriate' masculine performance today.
