Abstract:The Effects of Class, Ethnicity, and Gender Bias on Female Coming of Age as Portrayed in Postmodern American Novels examines the roles of female protagonists as members of society who are neither tragic nor heroic. The protagonists in the novels chosen are representative of young women in the United States who struggle within the limitations of their class, ethnicity, and gender. The first segment discusses female coming of age in Carolyn Chute's The Beans of Egypt, Maine by focusing on the effects of growing up in a low socioeconomic class defined as "white trash." Segment two examines the consequences of cultural practices on female coming of age in Edwidge Danticat's Breath, Eyes, Memory. Segment three explores the effects of gender-defined roles on female coming of age in Bobbie Ann Mason's In Country. The conclusion is that female coming of age as portrayed in these novels is a continuing process because the protagonists fail to define themselves.
